Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Gold Label Virgin coconut oil, is a unique hand-crafted coconut oil different from other coconut oils found on the market in the United States.
Coconut Oil has become the newest and most healthy alternative to cooking with oil and butter. A little of this coconut oil goes WAY further than if you were cooking with any other oil or even butter.
The best thing about this is that you can cook ANY dish that you want to (the same dishes you would cook in regular vegetable oil, canola oil, or butter) and there is NEVER any taste or smell of coconut what-so-ever.
Butter is so fattening and clogs arteries. I love cooking things in butter, but it isn’t healthy- for either myself or my kids. Heart disease runs in my family, and I try and avoid anything that may cause problems for us in the future.
At first, I was kind of in the middle about using this to cook. I’ve used it for my hair and loved it.. but I wasn’t sure it wasn’t going to add a coconut flavor to my food (until I tried cooking with it.)
My kids and I eat tons of oatmeal. I LOVE the fruit oatmeal, and it keeps me from wanting anything else to eat for quite awhile after eating it with about a teaspoon of coconut oil inside the oatmeal. It doesn’t taste any different, but somehow it is more filling with the coconut oil.
I love that they support small farmers of coconuts in the Philippines. The coconut oil is hand crafted in small batches in the Philippines.
Not only can you use Coconut oil for cooking regular everyday foods, you can use it to make your hair and skin beautiful as well. It is a solid, but you can heat it up in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and rub it in like you would a lotion or body butter.
As soon as you put it on, you can feel an immediate different in the smoothness of your skin. It makes it so soft, so supple, and the moisture lasts for a long time. You don’t need very much at all, maybe a half-dollar size for your entire body.
When using it in your hair- you heat it up in the microwave- and then I suggest dipping a brush or a comb straight into the jar. (If you aren’t using this jar for cooking) and then brush or comb the oil into your hair. Put it on your scalp and massage it in. THEN rub more from your roots all the way to the ends of your hair. RUB it in. Leave it on for as long as you want.
I have also started heating this up and mixing it in with my dog’s food. We got a new Red Nose Red Pit Bull and the kids and Adam named him Apollo. He got his name from the Movie Rocky. His dad’s name is Rocky.
The bottles are 1 quart, so no matter how you use them, a quart will last awhile. You can use this on your hair, your body, AND for cooking.
I hear about coconut oil everywhere. I t has become the new trend in beauty and health products.  Your food will taste the same without all the added calories from butter, margarine, or canola/vegetable oils.
