Coconut Oil

We love our coconut oil! For the past two years we have used coconut oil for popping popcorn as well as for health and beauty issues (homemade deodorant, chapped lips).

It's only been recently that we have switched over from vegetable and canola oil (I will not use these oils at all any more!) and have gone to the good oils: olive oil, safflower oil, and especially coconut oil. The health benefits are amazing and it can stand high temperature frying. We use this for everything from popping popcorn to frying up our taco shells. I go through at least a jar a month!

I was honored when Tropical Traditions wanted to host a review and giveaway on my blog. I was sent a 32 oz. jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. I had been using the Tropical Traditions cold-pressed coconut oil but had never tried the Gold Label. The gold label has more of a coconut taste and smell and we love this much more than the cold-pressed coconut oil. It works great for all our cooking/baking/frying needs and also is wonderful for our health and beauty needs.

Want a chance to win a 32 oz. bottle of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil? Use the form at the end of the post to enter!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?
You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

  2. I've been trying coconut oil recently for a face moisturizer, actually! For my skin type I think it will be more suited to winder dry skin on my hands or wherever else and not so much my face but it worked pretty well. I thought it would smell a lot more coconut-y than it does so I'd love to try this kind to see the difference!

  37. I just bought an off brand at the grocery this weekend because it was on sale. It took some time finding coconut oil in our stores. I've wanted to order TT but it also is expensive and hard to fit in our budget. I really want to use this good brand and try the recipes. I have never used this oil before. Sound soooo wonderful!
