Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway

Yesterday, I wrote an article about the benefits of coconut oil. I think it is quite amazing what this oil can do for your health. If you didn't get a chance to read my article, please do. I think you will learn at least one new thing that you can use to benefit your own health.

Coconut oil is a new staple in our house. I don't just use any coconut oil, though. I like to use the best quality that I can find to get the best results. The best quality I have found is from Tropical Traditions. They are committed to time-honored traditional practices that have produced healthy coconut oil for hundreds, if not thousands of years.

Watch this short 3 minute video clip about what sets Tropical Traditions apart from other companies!

I received their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, which is their absolute best of the best coconut oil. It meets their strictest standards to earn this designation. It is still made by hand and benefiting families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow. Isn't that impressive?

This oil has many uses! It is one of the best cooking oils you can use. As a cooking oil, its chemical structure is kept in tact and therefore is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cooking temperatures, unlike most vegetable oils. That is so important, because many other oils turn into hydrogenated oils when they are heated up, which is just terrible for our bodies. Just make sure you don't heat up coconut oil until it is smoking. Check out hundreds of recipes where you can use coconut oil. My favorites are the granola and Zucchini frittata.

You can also use it right on your skin. I have been lathering up everyone from my newborn daughter to myself with this healthy oil. Yes, it is a little greasy at first, but it is so moisturizing and smells so good! I love kissing my baby after I have put coconut oil on her. I also use it as a massage oil on my children when I give them their massages. They love it, and it works really well!

Check out all their products and if you purchase the 32 oz. Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil before February 10th, you can get it for 47% off!! That is such an awesome deal!

All of you can get your own complimentary copy of their Virgin Coconut Oil book by taking part in their Referral Program. When you make your first order, please choose “Referred by a Friend” and enter my User ID: 6904404 on your first online order. The book will then be automatically added to your order.

  40. The first recipe I came across was for Hawaiian Haupia (creamy rich coconut pudding). Yum! When I was in Hawaii they had malasadas (kind of like a fried donut) and you could get them with haupia filling. Not a good for you treat, but dang, they are good.
