Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin coconut oil is well known for its unique fragrance, taste and smell, like that of fresh coconuts, since it is derived from fresh coconuts and is subjected to very low heat and sunlight. It is also not refined, this preserves all the natural goodness of this oil, including a high content of vitamin-E and minerals, which are otherwise almost completely robbed from ordinary coconut oil. Furthermore, virgin coconut oil is very effective as a moisturizing agent. Its antioxidant properties are far better than those of normal coconut oil.
Virgin coconut oil looks slightly different from ordinary coconut oil and this differentiation cannot be made with the naked eye. This difference is mainly due to the presence of certain colloidal and other particles and moisture within it. On the other hand, ordinary oil is refined and is mainly left with the fatty acids in it and almost nothing else. Comparatively, virgin coconut oil should be as clear as water.

Spices enhance the color, fragrance and flavor of food. In addition many of them also have many health benefits. Used in the right combination, spices can turn the simplest food into an aromatic and rich experience in the world of cooking.
Ceylon spice trade can be traced back to the 14 th century, where Ceylon maintained relations with the Greeks, Romans and Arabs and the main reason for this popularity were the authentic spices including cinnamon, cardamom, clove, pepper, nutmeg, etc.., found in this tropical island. Tropical Sri Lanka with its diverse micro climates and soil types has many spices in its midst, most of them native, which has been the cause for their lucrative spice trade throughout the ages.
Cinnamomum Verum or 'true cinnamon' is an endemic to Sri Lanka, and is found in abundance around the island. Most other cinnamon from other countries is a related species called ‘cassia’ which makes pure Ceylon cinnamon all the more distinctive and exceptional.
Cinnamon is often used to spice up chocolates, desserts, beverages and in bakery products but also for alcohol flavoring for its distinctive aroma & flavor. Cinnamon is quite prominent for its medicinal uses and has the highest popularity in the USA and Mexico. 90% of the true cinnamon traded around the world comes from Sri Lanka.
