Welcome to EJ’s,
we all know how good coconut oil is.
At EJ’s we think our virgin, cold pressed unrefined coconut oil is even better! Using sustainable wild coconuts, the nuts are cracked open, the coconut meat is dried at temperatures not exceeding 59°C and the coconut meat is cold pressed by hand.
This process all happens within an hour by our team in Tonga, who directly benefit from the employment opportunities and it subsequently helps to support village communities.
The resulting oil retains the wonderful and distinct flavour of coconut and is perfect for cooking or eating raw. Finally it’s shipped to NZ for bottling and labelling for you to enjoy!

- A fantastic and effective make up remover
There are a number of health benefits to be gained from using EJ’s unrefined virgin coconut oil, including:
It differs from other fats and oils as it contains medium-chain fatty acids – these are easier on our bodies than long-chain fatty acids which are often found in vegetable or seed oils.
Medium-chain fatty acids are sent directly to our liver where they are immediately converted to energy rather than being stored as fat.
Almost 50% of the fat contained in Coconut Oil is Lauric Acid – which is capable of eliminating viruses and bacteria.
