Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review and #Giveaway, ends Nov 1

It is no secret that we love coconut oil in our household. We use it on hair, skin and of course for cooking. Tropical Traditions is a great source for coconut oil, information on coconut oil and many other organic foods and natural products. I got the opportunity to try their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. The process they use to get the coconut oil is very interesting, it is extracted by grating the fresh coconut, extracting the coconut milk, and then letting the coconut milk stand in a covered container for about 24 hours. After about 24 hours, the oil naturally separates from the water producing a crystal clear oil that retains the full scent and taste of coconuts. Watch the video below to learn more about the coconut oil extraction process:

Some of our favorite uses for coconut oil in the kitchen are for baking, it gives the cookies a much better flavor than vegetable or olive oil does. We eat it on toast and I use it in the baby food I make for my son. The Tropical Traditions Gold Label coconut oil truly does have the flavor of coconut! You can find many free recipes at the Tropical Traditions Free Coconut recipe blog.

We also love using coconut oil on our hair and skin. It provides a great barrier (seal) and helps hold in moisture, hydrate, heal and protect the hair and skin.. I have been using coconut oil on D’s hair for about 6 months now. I use it on her skin as well as mine and my son’s. It was a great natural aid in the remedy of my son’s eczema flare ups.

You can purchase a 32 oz jar of Gold Label Coconut Oil on the Tropical Traditions website, along with many other natural skin care products, organic foods and household items!
