Tiana Fair Trade Organics – Raw Ginger Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has being sending us all coco-loco lately, and for good reason – it’s an incredibly versatile natural product that can be used for so many things, from skin and hair care to cooking and baking. Coconut oil is especially suited to cooking at high temperatures, as it is made up of around 90% saturated fatty acids, which are able to withstand much higher temperatures than other oils and do not become toxic in the process. I have to confess, that while I have enjoyed using coconut oil in my beauty regime, up until very recently I was...

Viridian – 100% Organic Scandinavian Rainbow Trout Oil

I have to say, I was really nervous about testing this product. I’ve tried fish oil capsules in the past and just can’t stomach the fishy aftertaste and the smell that can linger for hours after taking them, so despite the great reviews I’ve heard I refused to believe it would taste nice and put off testing this until the very last minute. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I poured the oil onto a teaspoon (the directions advise to take one to three teaspoons daily) as my colleagues giggled beside me, waiting to watch me squirm. Despite my...
