Who likes coconut oil here? Have you ever used it or thought coconuts were just used as crunchy yumminess on the top of cookies or sundaes?
Coconuts are sooooo good for you. They have a list of health benefits longer than I care to list or you probably care to read (None of which are approved by the FDA… in case you were wondering). According to Coconut Research Center.org, “Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness.” You can check out that site for a long list of health benefits they have found if you are curious.
So, how do you get your hands on some of this wonderful yumminess? Well, I highly recommend Tropical Traditions for your coconut needs. They still do things the ‘old fashioned’ way and because of that, their coconut is super high quality!
Here’s a video that will tell you more about how they extract their Gold Label coconut oil and how it is different than others on the market:
Tropical Traditions has some great looking recipes on their site if you are interested in using your coconut oil in that way. I have a confession to make… I don’t like the taste of coconut… so I didn’t try any of the recipes. I have put it in smoothies for the kids and I and it’s… okay. I use it more medicinally (again, not FDA approved, so it is self prescribed medicine). It has been used as a lotion and to relieve the pain of sunburns, as well as to try to keep it from peeling. It does seem to work! The thing I think it has been used the most for in our house, though is on baby bums. Anytime our kids had a rash on their bum or just any kind of irritation anywhere, there were 3 things I turned to and coconut oil was one of them. Seriously… it always seemed to work to clear it up and it definitely soothed the area.
After hearing all of this, you know you want some for yourself… go ahead… go buy some!!
