Coconut Oil Giveaway!

When people walk into my kitchen, one of the first things they see is this:

Yep. I big jar of coconut oil. It is funny how many questions I will get about something I forget is not really “in the norm”. I use it everyday so I don’t think much about it. I forget that people still think that corn or soy oil is a healthy oil to use for cooking. ( Yep, vegetable oil is bad mmmkay. Go pour it down the drain. NOW. )

Besides coconut oil being a stable fat too cook with ( meaning it won’t give you cancer when you heat it up ) it tastes pretty darn amazing. One of the biggest questions I get is “does it make your food taste like coconut?” Well, no actually. I have found that it tastes like coconut straight out of the jar. ( Yes I admit I have taken a nibble of coconut oil straight out of the jar…) but when you cook it, the coconut flavor kind of cooks out. If you don’t do dairy, coconut oil is a good substitute for butter in both cooking and baking.

If you want to learn a few ways to use coconut oil then you can check out this video:

Or you can just keep reading my blog because I use it for everything.

Sooo now for the part you have been waiting for. The giveaway. I know you all love free stuff. So here is the deal:

    i want some coconut oil fudge. like now. i think it would make my ripped up hand feel much better. have i told you i wash my face with coconut oil? TMI?

    • haha that does sound amazing huh?! As for the face wash…hey not a bad idea. My skin pretty much hates me… I should try it lol Can you wash your hair with coconut oil because shampoo stings my ripped hands lol

      • molly said:

        i’ve got a recipe for shampoo made with coconut milk and castille soap (as long as it’s not the peppermint kind, it shouldn’t sting as much).

        apparently i made zoo noises while washing my hands after the gym. avery thought there was a giraffe in the bathroom.

        here’s what got me started washing my face with oil:

        it might sound counter-intuitive (hmm, kind of like eating fat and loosing weight), but it makes sense. like dissolves like. i went with coconut over olive and castor because i figured if coconut water is so compatible with the human body, coconut oil should be too (yes, i’m extremely scientific that way :)). i’ve definitely noticed an improvement in my complexion, and my skin is no longer dry from all the caustic cleansers i’ve experimented with over the years.

      • wow awesome thanks for all the info! I’m going to give it a try. My skin HATES the dryness in the summer. I do better in humid climates on the east coast lol good thing I am headed that way next week 😛

    I have signed up for the Tropical Traditions newsletter. I have been hearing and reading some about Coconut Oil lately. I would love to win some so I could try it.

  7. I signed up for the newsletter. I LOVE coconut oil. I use it in smoothies, to saute veggies in, as a hair and nail masque, and sometimes I just eat it by the spoonful. SO good! I don’t even use veggie oil anymore. Just olive oil occasionally, but mostly coconut!

    Subscribed on dial up! Only took 25 fricken minutes!!! But it was totally worth it for the win, hehe. 😉 Thanks for the info on coconut oil and I hope you and your skin have a great time on the east coast! 🙂

    PS: I had trouble with dial up and got a little impatient, so if I left two comments I apologize. See, again with the impatience lololol!!! 😉

    • hahaa I imagine you and dial up probably don’t make the best team… 😛 I’d say waiting 25 minutes to subscribe is a pretty big improvement though. Thanks for entering the giveaway! And will definitely have a good time on the east coast! Enjoy the rest of your break!
