Review & GIVEAWAY: Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!  CONGRATULATIONS TO AMANDA H.!!!!!


Well the folks over at Tropical Traditions have sent me a big ol’ jar of Coconut Oil just for the sole purpose of giving it a try and telling you my opinion of it.

Watch this video to learn more about gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

 

BAKING

Gluten-Free Brownies.  I made these brownies, however we are not vegan so I chose to use ghee instead of the “vegan buttery spread” recommended.  And, of course, I used Coconut oil instead of “vegetable oil” plus eggs.  These brownies turned out wonderful!  I’ve never used coconut oil when making brownies before and we were all very pleased with the results.  It also did very well in a loaf of bread we baked recently, though we used a tad too much flour so the loaf was a bit dense.  Winking smile

COOKING

It proved to be a very clean cooking oil for frying our grass-fed, local eggs.  It doesn’t impart a strong coconut taste like some other coconut oil I’ve used in the past.

SKIN CARE

If you read my previous post on Dry Skin Care you’d know that I’ve been using coconut oil in my oily/sugar scrub!  I’ve also rub it on any dry spots in between instead of using lotion.  It does a great job at relieving dry skin without leaving a greasy feeling, it soaks in pretty quickly usually.  The Mister of the house has been using it on his hand lately because they get pretty dry at work due to handling cardboard boxes all day.

OTHER USES

I’ve applied it to two different small kitchen wounds over the past week, sometimes I’m a little klutzy with a knife, and there was considerably less pain afterwards.

Our overall verdict?  We’re generally very pleased with Topical Traditions’ coconut oil and will continue to use it in replacement of any brand at the health food store.
