Bula Batiki Raw Fiji Coconut Oil*


So, I have something really amazing and heartwarming to share with you guys, basically the lovelies behind Bula Batiki reached out and sent me some of their amazing coconut oil and I really have to share this stuff! You may be thinking, coconut oil is just coconut oil right...? But this coconut oil is kind of special because of the whole story behind it (how many more times can I say coconut oil...) - and it's something that I seriously love so I had to share it! So, there's a beautiful island called Batiki Island (which I am told is a 3 hour boat ride from the east of the Fijian mainland by the way) and there are four villages on this island. These villages make the coconut oil using the island's natural coconut trees (in fact, it takes six coconuts to make one jar!) Basically Bula Batiki makes it possible for the villagers to sell their coconut oil and all of the money goes back into the island in order to give the island a sustainable source of income to provide developments in education, healthcare and housing - how amazing is that! I absolutely love everything about this and I feel like it just makes the coconut oil that little bit more special knowing not only where it has come from and the amazing story behind it but knowing that your money is going towards a good cause!

Not only is the cause behind the coconut oil amazing, but also I just have to say that the actually coconut oil itself works wonders! Obviously it's 100% raw, virgin coconut oil so you know exactly what you're buying - nothing is added or taken away. As I mentioned it's also handmade by the villagers themselves, not made in a factory, which is always a bonus! There are so many uses for coconut oil and I've never really used it before, so I am very excited to see what this stuff can do. A few uses that I've heard of myself are that it's great for nourishing hair and skin, it can be used as a natural deodorant, it can be used as a fat for cooking or apparently it tastes delicious added to many different foods! (It's gluten, lactose and cholesterol free by the way) In fact a tablespoon of coconut oil a day has proven to be an immediate source of energy, speed up weight loss and also improve sleep - who knew?! So basically what I'm trying to say is this is the stuff you never knew you needed and you should definitely grab yourself a jar right now, haha!
