I consider myself somewhat versed in natural methods. Whether it be body care or health, I try to study and be knowledgeable in what I am preparing and using in my own family. When I was given the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil I was excited! I LOVE coconut oil, and use it in many ways in my day to day life, of which cooking is just one of them.
In doing this review I wanted to offer you something other than the traditional uses, so you too can see how versatile coconut oil is. And no matter what I threw at it, Tropical Traditions was up to the challenge.
One thing I use coconut oil for is stir-frying. It has a high smoke point, so it is ideal. But I also have used it as a body moisturizer, a binder for natural deodorant, to make nut butters, and to bake with when a recipe calls for shortening. In the following YouTube video I show you how easy it is to make both the deodorant and fresh almond butter using Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.
What I love almost as much as the oil itself, is the back story to this product. It was started by a family who was living in the Phillippines at the time. They started extracting the coconut oil BY HAND the way its been done for generations. And what I love even more, is that their staff still do it by hand today!
