Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil Giveaway/Review

I have been using coconut oil for some time now. I use coconut oil in my soaps. It is the perfect soap making oil. It gives soap a great nourishing lather and makes a hard bar. Until recently I didn't know you could cook with coconut oil (I'm a little slow). Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their Gold Label virgin coconut oil to try out. If you have never heard of coconut oil before check out this link: What is Coconut oil? 


The oil smells lovely! Not overpowering, just a hint of coconut. For my first foray into the world of cooking with coconut oil I picked what I thought was a fairly easy recipe. Tropical Traditions has a ton of coconut oil recipes on their website and I picked a soft pretzel recipe. The recipe was fairly easy. I had to melt the coconut oil a little since it does harden in cool weather. I tried my best to make a pretzel shape but I failed miserably. They looked a mess but they really did taste like a pretzel! They were fantastic but next time I think I'll make pretzel knots or something easier for my inexperienced hands. I didn't detect any hint of coconut in the pretzels and they were nice and moist!

Tropical Traditions produces the highest quality coconut oils on the market and have the highest levels of antioxidants. They use no chemicals in the extraction process. Coconut oil has been used in cooking for thousands of years!  It is rich in lauric acid, a nutrient that supports the body’s immune system and it is a healthy fat!

Below is a video on all the different ways to use coconut oil

  12. I have never used coconut oil but am eager to give it a try. I also heard it's great as a moisturizer since it isn't supposed to clog pores. Sounds like an all around great product to at least try.

  21. Two days ago, I made my first purchase of coconut oil. It was just a small trial size. I've already mixed it with eucalyptus essential oil for a chest rub for my coughing child, and also as a lotion for me. Oh, and I love the taste - just a hint of coconut flavor in the aftertaste!
