*DME (Direct Micro Expelling)
The coconut oil is cold-pressed from fresh coconuts within 1 hour of opening the coconut using hand operated presses. This means that the coconut oil is supremely fresh as direct micro expelling avoids high temperature industrial pressing, hence the term ‘extra virgin’ for this superior grade of coconut oil. You can go to this website for full details of the DME process used to make our coconut oil.
**Fair trade status
At the present time there are no Fairtrade Labelling Organisation (FLO) protocols established for Fairtrade with coconuts. However we work to three fair trade models which give fair trade status to our coconut oil. Please go to this website to see details of the fair trade status of our coconut oil.
- Ideal cooking oil for frying or baking. Lovely for roasting potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, parnips and yams.
- A natural spread to replace margarine or butter.
- Delicious in salad dressings or smoothies.
- A healthy and great tasting inclusion in your diet.
- External use for skin care.
Long shelf life - does not have to be refrigerated. Coconut oil is very stable and resistant to rancidity but, like all oils, care should be taken not to introduce water into it (e.g., a wet spoon). This can reduce shelf life and even encourage mould to grow.

Love this the taste of this particular product. I love the convenience of ordering online and know where my order is at every step of the way to my back door. Return customer right here!
I ordered the fair trade virgin coconut oil and was very impressed with both the service and product. The oil arrived the day after I paid (!) and is of superb quality. I was after fair trade virgin coconut oil, which turned out to not be in abundant supply in NZ. I am so glad I found Hebe botanicals. I have found my supplier of coconut oil, no need to look any further.
This is well priced quality coconut oil. The service is great and the products always arrive well packaged and very quickly. Highly recommend this product from this company.
It's hard to find cold-pressed organic coconut oil in NZ so I am glad to have found it through this site. Great on toast and as a substitute for cooking oil in baking.
