    Yafa, I haven't found anywhere in our area to buy oil. Not in large amounts, tiny bits you can get at Whole Foods. I get my oils from Columbus Foods, the shipping isn't bad, and the service is awesome.

    I know they are not in VA but they get good shipping rates and the prices are really low.

    Most any grocery store should have coconut oil. It's with the baking stuff.
