TheraVita Paradise Pure Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil | Review

I am a HUGE lover of coconut oil, and have used many different kinds, by many different brands. This one by TheraVita has to be the worst.

I use coconut oil in cooking, baking, skincare, and etc. I know what to expect with it, and how to use it. I was very excited to try this one since I use coconut oil so much, it's nice to try out different brands that make it. The container came in a large white plastic canister. The canister was wrapped almost completely in sealed plastic. Worked for me. Once I took off the plastic I noticed a very strong plastic chemical type of scent, and figured it was just the outer plastic that smelled like that. I twisted off the lid, the safety seal inside was completely 100% unsealed. Then I held the open container up to my nose and all I could smell was that same plastic chemical scent. Being that I am a blogger and product tester, I did what is expected, and took a spoon and dug out a little bit of the coconut oil, and sampled it. The taste was exactly the same as the smell. Absolutely horrid.

There is no way that I can cook, bake, or use this on my skin. I wouldn't want to. From what it seems, this container must be old, this is a batch gone bad or had some sort of malfunction during shipment. Something just isn't right.

I cannot recommend this at all unfortunately.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
