GIVEAWAY & Review: Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil

I was very excited about the opportunity to review Tropical Tradition Virgin Coconut Oil. You may have noticed that I have been posting recipes that I have come up with and tested that are clean eating recipes, well, in my research and learning about clean eating coconut oil keeps coming up.

I wanted to share a few ways I used this coconut oil with you that  are not related to a recipe that I was pleased with the results:
* As a deep conditioner to rub in to ends of my long, curly hair (it seems to help from it becoming too tangled and easier to comb through when it does.)
* As a lip balm- simply just apply a tint amount to your lips and rub in (it made my lips soft.)
* As a makeup remover (just a tiny, tiny bit is needed and I found it very effective in removing makeup, even the harder to remove eye liner it removed easily.)

Hopefully you also had a chance to read (and try out!) these recipes I have recently posted on my blog that I used coconut oil in.

Baked Puff Pancake






And you just have to try this!!!!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Every time I make this, my house smells absolutely wonderful and my family can't wait for it to be done. I am hammered by "How much longer?" through the entire hour it is in the oven. I used Tropical Traditions coconut oil to make both of these recipes.

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.

Coconut oil, although high in fat content, is supposed to be very healthy for your body. I would love to give it a try in cooking and baking.
