DIVYAMS NATURAL OIL
We source our wood / cold-pressed coconut oil from Divyams Natural Oil. They not only provide pressed coconut oil, but gingelly / sesame oil and groundnut oil which can be used for cooking.
Here's a view into who they are, why they began this and why we like buying from them.
HOW I GOT IN TOUCH WITH THEM
I happened to see a poster on the bulletin board of my apartment, advertising a natural oil extraction demo in order to promote awareness about the continued existence of such healthy practices to give quality product without contaminants. Check out their poster which also lists down the benefits of these oils.
I called up Mr. Saravanan (one of the founders) and scheduled a meet-up at one of the apartment complexes that he provides for. I was able to initiate a good conversation with him about his business, how Scentora uses and requires good-quality coconut oil and I was fascinated with the mobile extraction unit that they had.
HOW ARE THEY DIFFERENT
As I spoke with Mr. Saravanan about why he started all this, he patiently explained to me about how most commercial oil products we see today are petroleum-based, which is unhealthy in the long run. He also spoke to me about the added colors and preservatives in the oils we buy today. And I've gotta tell you guys as a side-note, fresh-made coconut oil smells amazing.
The coconuts, gingelly / sesame and groundnuts which are used in the extraction of their corresponding oils are sourced from Salem, Tamil Nadu from farmers.
Divyams aims to provide quality oil using wood / cold-press technique. They have a mobile oil extraction unit from where they extract oil without using colours or preservatives.
HOW THE EXTRACTION UNIT WORKS
Mr. Saravanan was kind enough to send us a video of how the extraction of oil works using the machine. It was pretty cool to see it in action. Check out the video on their website.
They are providing their services to apartment complexes in Bengaluru near Gottigere, Electronic City and Sarjapur with a good success rate in these places. You can enquire with them about their other service locations.

The contact number is mentioned on the site and on the poster given above, if any of you would like to contact him for more details.
Mr. Saravanan speaks Tamil, Kannada, Hindi and English.
