The trend setters seem to be using coconut oil as their oil of choice.
I didn't ;-)
In my last 4 batches I have used walnut oil, macadamia nut oil, lemon oil and standard sunflower oil. There was a slight difference (with lemon being my fav), but not enough to justify buying a bottle of oil.
The choice, as they say, is yours x
