Why I love coconut oil and a GIVEAWAY!

I love coconut oil. 

Seriously. It has literally become my best friend. Which I am sure the entire Pinterest community can agree with me!

I can't begin to tell you all of the ways that I enjoy this silky nectar of goodness-but I'll try!

1. Cooking oil. Duh, right? I prefer to use the for "greasing" as well as frying. It just rocks.

2. Hair mask. It's a little tough to wash out completely-but it's well worth the effort. 

3. Hand Lotion. Oh man! Trust me on this! If you hands are all cracked and nasty from the cold weather-rub in some of this and BAM! Instant manicure. 

4. Face wash. I use this alone to remove all of my makeup. Then I rinse and wipe off. Next, I mix the coconut oil with a bit of baking soda. This makes a paste that I rub into my face. Rinse with warm water, and pat dry. My skin LOVES me for it!

5. Belly butter. Now that baby three is starting to make my tummy blow up, I've gotta make sure he/she doesn't leave anymore permanent imprints like #1 and #2 did. I just rub it straight into my skin when I hop out of the shower. My favorite use so far!

6. Feet cream. Trust me.


Now as far as brands of coconut oil-not all are created equal! You want the good stuff!

If it doesn't smell sweet-it's junk. The smell goes away due to processing, and well all know that means there's probably nothing left to enjoy-sadly.

Not to worry, Tropical Traditions has you covered! This amazing company has everything you need when it comes to coconut oil, and in almost any amount you need!

I received a quart from them, and was completely ecstatic! You can smell the sweetness right when you open the jar. I am very pleased with the product.
