Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz.Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

(Contest form is on the right- enter often!)

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. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?

I have used Tropical Traditions coconut oil for quite some time now, and find it to be my favorite!  Not only do they have a quality made product that is crucial for those of us in the Paleo or Ancestral lifestyle, they ship quickly and package their glass jars very well- I have never had a breakage problem with them.

I use this oil in cooking, (it's great for frying eggs in!), and often add a Tablespoon or so to my daily Paleo Smoothie, along with the coconut milk and many other ingredients I include in my daily concoction...

How else do I use it?  

This may seem a little strange, but each day, before my morning shower, I spoon out a teaspoon or so from the bottle I keep in the bathroom, and put it in my mouth!  I swish it around as I shower, performing what is known as oil pulling, since I'm kind of "pulling" it around in my mouth!  Anyway, I think that aside from a Paleo template sort of diet that includes real, God-made foods and avoids processed, man-made modern foods like wheat and sugar, this is one great thing to add to your daily "routine".

Then, after showering, I spoon out some more coconut oil, and rub it over my body- it is the very best moisturizer there is!  (It's also the best hair conditioner)!  Then, I rub it on my face, and, using my trusty 1960 Gillette razor, I get the smoothest shave I have ever gotten before switching to coconut oil!  Really!  Try this too!

An important thing to realize is that your skin is like another mouth- whatever you put on your skin is absorbed into your body- so only put high-grade things like coconut oil on your body- avoid the petroleum based lotions and potions nowadays sold as moisturizers and conditioners. Yuck!

Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on
a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read
about the health benefits of coconut oil:

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online.

So there you have it, friends!  Good luck in winning your free quart, AND my eBook Perfectly Paleo Exercise!


Oh yes: 

Tropical Traditions provided me with a free sample of this product to review, 
and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose.  Nor was I under any 
obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return 
for the free product.

I have heard of the oil pulling but haven't tried it yet. I do make deodorant out of coconut oil and it works wonderfully for me.

I love this oil my favorite way to use coconut oil is in skincare products such as cold process soaps and body butters, body melts!
I like to eat it by the spoonful and also oil pull with it! : )
