Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil **CLOSED**




I recently had the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.  Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is a food,  and one of the best!  It is made in the Phillipeans by families who are coconut farmers and use methods that have been used for thousand of years.  Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil is produced by hand,  using a wet  milling process to extract the oil from fresh coconuts.   They use coconuts that are Fresh, usually within  24-48 hours of harvest from small family farms on Mt.  Banahaw and rural places in Quezon Province.  They do not mass produce the oil.
The Video below discusses how they found this unique oil.


When i first received the Coconut oil i noticed it came in a 32 ounce jar and the coconut oil was a pearly white color.  I read the jar and it said they use only the highest quality of organic coconuts and are hand selected, making them one of the best brands there are available.  I loved the fact that it is not necessary to store the oil in the refridgerator and it has a two year shelf life. The oil will solidify in temperatures under 76 degrees Farenheight,  if you would like to reliquify it you must put it in a pan of warm water .   It smells just like fresh coconuts and is not to mild nor strong scented. 

The first use i used it for was Cooking.  I found some Free recipes using Coconut Oil at http://freecoconutrecipes.com/.  Some of the FREE recipes that they offer are:
  • Hot Cocoa Coconut Oil Recipe
  • Coconut Cream Sweet Potato Bake Recipe
  • Black and White Toasted Coconut Fudge Recipe
  • Coconut Macaroons Recipe
  • Frozen Banana Cream Pie Coconut Oil Recipe
  • Soft Pretzels Recipe
I tried the Hot Cocoa Coconut Oil Recipe and i was surprised by how delicious it tasted! It really transformed my plain hot cocoa into a tasty drink.  I was surprised by how much added flavor it gave my hot cocoa. 

Another use for Coconut oil is using it in your hair.  Here are both of the suggested uses:
To use on Dry Scalp:
   Rub into hair and scalp atleast 30 minutes before showering or before bed at night.  Be sure to wear a towel or shower cap at night to protect your bedding. 
To use as a Hair Conditioner:
Rub onto the ends of your hair after washing while the hair is still wet.  Apply as needed,  working towards the scalp.  It can also be used as a pre-wash hair treatment.  Apply just before showering.  It is excellent on all hair types.
I used it on my sons dry scalp and by the morning i noticed his head was less dry.  I also used a little bit in my hair and it provided extra softness and shine.
