Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway 4/21 CLOSED

Coconut Oil is something fairly new to me.  When I found out about it I really wanted to try it out.  I have heard it's great for cooking, but can also be used on things like your skin and hair too.  Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil can be used for so many things.  There is said to be hundreds of uses for coconut oil.    I personally find it really neat that it has so many great uses.  

You can watch the video above to get some great ideas for use!

I decided to test out Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil by baking with it.  I decided to bake some blueberry muffins and replace my regular cookie oil with coconut oil.  I just used a baking mix that I purchased from the grocery store.  The coconut oil has a different texture than what I am used to working with.  It is somewhere in the middle of cooking oil and shortening.  However, it was easy to work with.  It blended into my muffin batter easily.  It was also easy to mix in.  The Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil worked great in my muffins.  I actually think it gave my muffins an excellent flavor.  I am going to continue to use it in different foods.  

So what exactly is virgin coconut oil?  It is oil made from the fresh meat of the coconut.  It is said to be high in antioxidants.  This is a high quality product that is made by hand.  It is a very interesting process.  

You can learn more in the video below.

Tropical Traditions offers their Gold Label Coconut Oil in a variety of different sizes.  You can buy coconut oil right from their website.  They also offer other products besides coconut oil.  Tropical Traditions has a nice selection of supplements, pet products, organic food, household items and more.

  1. I'd use it on my daughters skin. She has eczema and I've heard it can help.

  2. This is an awesome giveaway...thank you!

  3. I use coconut oil on my hair & skin in the shower & it is amazing! I don't have to use lotion anymore. It keeps my skin so hydrated it's incredible. I originally was looking for something for my skin because my face has been breaking out more than it ever has before. My friend suggested coconut oil to me, and not only do I use it on my face, which is completely clearing up, but my skin all over my body is so smooth & hydrated. I use the tiniest bit in my hair and now it is silky smooth!

  4. I have used Tropical Traditions coconut oil for several years. I use it in cooking, baking, and for my skin. I apply it directly to my skin. It only takes a light coating for my skin to feel softer. I appreciate the chance to win a jar of the coconut oil. It would be put to good use. April 21st is my 40th wedding anniversary so this could be a gift for both my husband and myself.

  5. I use coconut oil in my coffee every morning :)
