Review and Giveaway - Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

I love coconut oil.  There I said it. The secret is out.  I cook with it and create with it.  I love the way it feels, smells, and tastes.  I love that I can substitute it for shortening.  I love that it is a solid at room temperature and has a high smoke point.  I love that it is a naturally occurring, plant based source of saturated fat.  I love that it feels silky smooth on my skin and works great in bath and beauty products.  I could go on and on.

And I really love that the wonderful folks over at Tropical Traditions sent me a 32 oz jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.  Now for the required disclosure.  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.

We use a lot of coconut oil in our home.  And I must confess this is not the first time I have used Tropical Traditions' Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.  Tropical Traditions' coconut oil is wonderful! It has a wonderful coconut scent, light and clean, not overpowering.  More information about virgin coconut oil can be found here.

Tropical Traditions' Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is smooth and creamy, melting beautifully in my hand. The first thing I did after opening the jar, well, and after enjoying its wonderful aroma, was smooth a little on the back of my chapped hands.  Oh what a relief!  It left my hands smooth and soft; so much better than most of the sticky moisturizers laying around the house.  

I will be using this in my next batch of Coconut Oil Bath Fizzies.  Look for a number of new coconut oil based recipes (both food and bath/body) in the upcoming weeks here at Cats on the Homestead.  For more on How to Use Coconut Oil click here.

Now for the giveaway.  Tropical Traditions is giving away to one of my lovely readers a 32oz jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.  You don't want to miss out.  Enter below and good luck!
