Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway

I've had the opportunity to try Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and all I can say is WOW. I really love it's versatility. It has a very slight coconut scent and taste, but you don't really taste the coconut. I have used it in cooking, as a treatment on my hair and as a bath and body oil. It has become my bath oil of choice. A little goes a long way, I use 1/2 teaspoon of oil in my bath. It soaks into my skin fairly quickly and I love how my skin feels.

The French Toast made with the coconut oil turned out great as did the popcorn. We have used it for other cooking needs with success. One of the few things I don't care to use it for is salad dressings... the flavor of the dressing was very good, but I don't want to take the time to bring the dressing to room temperature before use. Coconut oil is a solid below about 76 degrees.



To learn more about Tropical Traditions, watch the video How We Discovered Virgin Coconut Oil - An Interview with Brian Shilhavy, CEO Tropical Traditions

I also received the book Virgin Coconut Oil: How it has changed people’s lives and how it can change yours! by Brian and Marianita Shilhavy. The book has many testimonials from people who have successfully used Virgin Coconut Oil for it's health benefits. Virgin Coconut Oil has very high levels of medium chain fatty acids and also contain lauric acid. The book also contains many recipes.
