Whole coconut oil is solid at room temperature and has long unsaturated fatty acid triglycerides. This oil has a high percentage of completely saturated triglycerides (no double bonds). When the smaller fatty acids and long-chain triglycerides are separated from the whole coconut oil, it leaves only saturated fats or a fraction of the whole oil. This is then known as “Fractionated Coconut Oil.”

VCO on the other hand has its own advantages and some real followers that are adamant about its health and wellness attributes. A little internet research and you’ll see the passion out there. I have personally seen it do amazing things by itself, especially in the area of skin care, but when you blend VCO with essential oils you create a synergizing product that I believe is far superior that just either product alone.

An example.  We had a friend who had a son with a rash under his eye. Likely herpes. We had him apply some essential oils, which seemed to slowly be helping, but when we combined the oils with VCO, the irritation was completely gone in a few short days.

It’s white, solid (below about 73 degrees) and has a slight coconut flavor.  If you melt it to add essential oils, don’t use a microwave but place a glass container with the VCO in a pan with hot water from the tap. This will be sufficient warmth to melt the VCO.
