As with most good things, I heard about coconut oil from my Mom. When I was 17 she quit buying Crisco. She was way ahead of game....She started using coconut oil in her cooking and as a lotion and was always encouraging me to TRY IT. I am always way behind the game. Over the last few years I've started trying it out myself, so now I can finally join in the chorus of people saying that it is amazing stuff.
I use Coconut Oil for so many things. I use it:
In my cooking. Basically, I either sub it for butter or use half butter and half coconut oil. In most of my cooking, I prefer to use Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil which doesn't taste or smell like coconut. I especially love using it in my waffles!
On my hair. It makes a great moisturizer on damp hair. Just take a little dab and run it through your hair, avoiding your scalp area (so that your hair doesn't get too greasy) and then comb through your hair and style as usual.
On my hands, feet, and nails. Coconut oil makes your skin so soft. I love following a sugar scrub with some coconut oil. It even softens the callous that I get from writing!
On my teeth. My Mom strikes again. She threw a small container of "tooth paste" that is mostly made up of coconut oil into my stocking at Christmas. I finally tried it earlier this year and after about a week I decided that I love it.
These are just a FEW of the things you can do with coconut oil! Everyone seems to be researching its benefits and testing out its usefulness.
We always get our coconut oil from Tropical Traditions and even though they gifted me with this quart, I chose to do this review because they are a company that I personally trust! I trust this company because:
*We have never received a batch of oil from Tropical Traditions that we were unsatisfied with. The product is always quality and the shipments have never been damaged.
*We have never felt like the prices at Tropical Traditions are too high.
*We have always enjoyed the sales and special prices that Tropical Traditions regularly offers.
You may not realize it, but there are two varieties of coconut oil: Virgin Coconut Oil smells and tastes like coconut and Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil which does not. This was an important discovery for me because I am not the biggest fan of coconut, but I really like using this oil.
In the meantime, I feel like I should tell you that they are offering some really great sales right now! You can Buy 1 Quart of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil and get 1 FREE by clicking HERE.
