    Help...... When I get some what do I do with it? Take it off the spoon? Don't fancy cooking eggs with it! :)

    I use it to cook with - it gives a lovely flavour to everything - can also be used as a moisturiser or hair conditioner/glosser ... They say start with about a teaspoon a day and increase to a tablespoon or so.

    Hey Susie, It's fine with cream. I have started taking my coffee black now and good with black too. The oil just sits on the top but is clear so doesn't look icky or anything x
