I am so excited this is my first time hosting a giveaway and better yet it is a product that I have come to love and can't live without. I mean I love it so much I keep a spare unopened jar in my house all the time.

I started using coconut oil about 2 years ago for my dry skin. I started just using it as a lotion, rubbing it into my dry skin as a moisturizer. Then a friend told me she loves it, eats it all the time, sometimes just by the spoonful. I though, hmm, sure why not. And then she told me about Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil and I was hooked. I love the light coconut flavor. I love it on toast in the morning w/ a sprinkle of cinnamon. Then I started reading the recipes on the free coconut recipes blog and I started cooking with it. First I made granola then I used it to saute chicken for stir fry, sometimes I even use it to cook my eggs for breakfast. It is so easy to sub it for butter in baking especially when the butter needs to be softened. Then we got a dog from the humane society. She was covered in ticks and was a little puny after being spayed. I had read that it is safe for dogs so I gave her a little with her food. She loved it and it was one of the first foods I could get her to eat after coming home.
If you want to know more about coconut oil check out this video.
So when the opportunity came up for me to post a Tropical Tradition giveaway I was ecstatic I love tell others about this product and I am happy to give someone else a chance to try it. If you can't wait for the giveaway to end you can always go buy it yourself, right now they have it BOGO free. That is a sweet deal.

Btw, I've heard amazing, amazing things about using Coconut Oil as a base oil for blending massage oils, so I'd DEFINITELY love to try the Organic Massage Oils.

Resa said...

Back in my barista days, I LOVED using coconut milk for specialty drinks, so the iced coconut mocha cappuccino (though out of the question for a few months) certainly sounds right up my alley!

The product I would try would be the organic teeth cleaners. Sounds more interesting than other options.

I would try the coconut fried shrimp. I had coconut shrimp in a restaurant once and loved it but I've never even thought of making it at home. I might have to try it for dinner sometime next week!
