For obvious Paleo reasons, and most recently because I found out that coconut oil is so wonderful on so many levels. I am in no way offering advice on any health benefits that may be or not be attained by the use of coconut oil, only that there are so many other uses for it...Or for a visual you can view some uses on YouTube.
Prior to receiving my complimentary quart size container of Tropical Traditions, I had went in on a deal with NC where you buy 1 get one free, so now I have a gallon of coconut oil! Won't have to buy any for a long time!
One of the great things about coconut oil is that it takes a lot less oil than any other type you may want to cook with, so like I said, I will be set for quite some time!
Since I had about a 1/3 of a cup left in my 365 jar, I added some salt to it and use is as a scrub to get any dry skin off during the shower sessions. You could also use sugar, but I don't keep sugar in the house, so that was not an option.
I am just in the process of implementing the use of coconut oil in more and more of not only food but in everyday life.
The one thing I immediately noticed (and liked) about Tropical Traditions is that it does not have an overwhelming smell of coconut. It gives a hint of it to your food, but not like other coconut oils I have used, which seem to be a bit overbearing.
Today instead of EVOO and balsamic on my salad that I brought for lunch, I drizzled some of the Tropical Traditions. SO GOOD!
