Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil

Stumble Twitter Digg This
I discovered coconut oil a couple of years ago and it didn't take me long until I was sold.  I loved the smell, I didn't mind the taste, which is really saying something since I really don't like anything coconut.  I never have.  Until I made my chocolate chip cookies with half butter, half coconut oil.  Oh. My. Word.  So, so good.  My husband, lover of all things coconut was in absolute heaven.

So, I was super excited when Tropical Traditions asked me if I would like a sample of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, I was thrilled.  I pulled it open and immediately put it in a batch of bread I was making.  It was beautiful. One of the great things about using coconut oil in bread is that the flavor isn't overwhelming, but it adds something that you can't find with anything else.

Another favorite use of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is not for cooking.  Did you know that it makes a great lotion?  I love it.  I love the way it smells, I love the way it makes my skin feels. My son has pretty severe excema, and it seems like every lotion out there stings when it goes on.  He never complains when I use Coconut oil.  And for a mom, that is a big, big deal.

Tropical Traditions has also offered to give one of my readers a quart of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.

Hubby bought some coconut oil a month or so ago, and I haven't know how to use it! So, hopefully by signing up for the newsletter (which I did) I'll be more informed!

I think we have something in common. I also love using virgin coconut oil however, mine is from a different brand. I use it mostly for everything. I apply it as a moisturizer for my skin, conditioner for my hair, a natural make-up remover and a lot more!
