We love coconut oil at our place and use it daily.
There are hundreds of uses for coconut oil. Any time a recipe calls for corn or soy oil (which are high in polyunsaturated fats and not heat stable) try using coconut oil instead.
These are a few of my favorite ways to use it (in the kitchen and out of it!)
- Make natural snacks like Nourishing Energy Bites or Protein Bars
- Pop your popcorn in coconut oil for a delightful flavored popcorn.
- Use it to make natural homemade deodorant—that really works (without all the chemicals)
- Use for a relaxing message oil
- Apply to skin if you get a sunburn (it’s my go-to remedy. It soothes and cools the hot burning!)
Coconut oil is amazing, but commercial coconut oil that is sold on the shelves in many stores has been “refined, bleached, and deodorized”.
You can taste the difference with Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil!. It still has the light, delicate coconut flavor.
Tropical Traditions is committed to preserving the natural state of coconut oil (read more here and here!) Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is harvested and prepared by farmers and families using the traditional process that has been used for thousands of years. They are organic, but go beyond organic requirements and only harvest coconut from trees far from polluted areas.
