Review and GIVEAWAY~ Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil!!


I first discovered Coconut Oil about three years ago.  I saw a small jar in a health food store on clearance and loved the way it smelled!  I mostly used it on my skin.  I've since learned that there are SO MANY more uses for Coconut Oil!

I've been continuing buying my coconut oil, usually purchasing whatever was on sale at the health food store.  Then I got this opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.  I figured there couldn't be that much difference-coconut oil is coconut oil, right? I was wrong.  The quality of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil far surpasses what I was purchasing. The texture, scent, and taste are all exceptional!

The story of how Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil began is is great-check out the YouTube video below!  I was really impressed to watch how the oil is made-their premiere brand is still made completely by hand!  Also, Tropical Traditions is the #1 seller of Coconut Oil in America!  I must admit, I have not used Coconut oil in my cooking very much-I use it for lots of personal care. My favorite thing to make with Coconut Oil is deodorant-its amazing!  I will post the recipe on the blog tomorrow. 

If you haven't already figured it out, I'm sold on this Coconut Oil-it's my new brand!  Would you like to try it for yourself??  Well, Tropical Traditions has been generous-one The Loose Screw reader will win their own 32oz. Coconut Oil, shipped to their home!!

The Giveaway!!

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

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. 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.

You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

Been using virgin coconut oil for so many years now and like you, I always love the effects whether on my hair or skin. Whenever I forget to apply some, I really feel that my skin is not that smooth.
