Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway

I've been reading reviews for Tropical Traditions products for the past few months and have been wondering what they are all about.  After reading through their website, especially the section titled "Peace with God", I just had to find out more!  I had never heard of Coconut Oil before, and certainly haven't used it in cooking.  So I wondered what this was exactly and why I would use it over what I already have at home.

Our Homeschool Reviews was sent a quart of Certified Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil to review.  After opening the box, I was staring at this HUGE, beautifully labeled jar of oil.  What was I supposed to use this for again??  Cooking?  Oh yeah!  I need some recipes!  Thankfully their site has hundreds of recipes listed!  I needed a good dinner recipes so I chose the Garden Fresh Coconut Oil Stir Fry.  I cooked it last night and thankfully my husband and daughter enjoyed it!!  I had no trouble at all substituting the cooking oil I would have used for the Coconut Oil and the meal did not have a coconut taste.

If I've peaked your interest into this product, you can find out more by watching this video entitled  “How We Discovered Virgin Coconut Oil - An Interview with Brian Shilhavy, CEO Tropical Traditions

My Thoughts:  I like what I have read about the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and it was easy to use.  I would recommend this product! 

Find Out More:  Right now Tropical Traditions is having a sale and selling their Certified Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil for $19.95 for 1 pint or $27.50 for 1 quart.  Coconut Oil is not all they sell though.  They have products which range from organic food to skin care to household products.   

When making a purchase, you can receive your own complimentary copy of their Virgin Coconut Oil book!  When your choose “Referred by a Friend” and enter the User ID: 6515018 on your first online order, the book will be automatically added.

It's also great as a hair moisturizer! Just be sure to spray the shower down afterward with a cleaner so you don't kill yourself the next time you get in.
