Review : Coconut Oil

My how I love Coconut Oil!!  I always have some on hand, and order it often to ensure I do not run out.  Order it, you wonder?  Well I order it because where I  live, the coconut oil that I can buy locally is highly refined.  So, rather than run out & buy a lower product, I try to keep some on hand at all times!!

I love it!  I use it all over my house and for tons of things!!

1.  I use it to bake with : Brownies, Cookies, muffins, Granola etc

(replace the called for oil in your recipe and go!)

2.  Hair Management : I scrunch my hair with coconut oil on my hands once I comb it out after a shower, and let it dry naturally.  I moisturizes my curly hair and keeps it from getting frizzy.

3.  I use it as a moisturizer, I simply put it on my hands and rub on my hands, arms, legs, anywhere I am dealing with dry skin.  Oh yeah, I use it daily on my face and neck.  DAILY.  This is my moisturizer for my face, PERIOD.

4.  I made Lotion Bars with it – and they have gotten rave reviews  from friends!!

5.  I stir fry with it, make soup, and saute fish and other things too.

6.  This may seem odd, but I use it for homemade deodorant too – and LOVE it!!

That is just a few of the ways we love coconut oil.

There are many options when it comes to coconut oil.  I have fallen in love with Tropical Traditions oil, not just because of the quality, but I love the heart behind their company!!

    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.
