YUM ...
Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - 32 oz.Win 1 quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!
Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?
You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:


Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.



Like I said above YUM ... We have been using Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil in just about everything! My oldest son knew he wasn't going to like coconut oil when I first explained it to him. "By 30 I ought to know what I would and wouldn't like" He said. Well after our way to seldom fish browning Sunday dinner with potato casserole and chocolate cake for desert, all of which had Tropical Traditions Golden Label Virgin Coconut Oil he decided it was pretty good and that I didn't tell him in the right way what it was! Last evening he made brownies and asked for one quarter cup of "that" oil. Tehe children always come around to our way of thinking eventually! On the serious side this Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil is AWEsome. My daughter, the Mom in Mom To Grandma made me promise to save her some to try but I'm not so sure if that will happen. The FDA rules say I cannot talk about the health benefits in my post but remember there are other links and so forth that you may look into on your own! As far as I know this is still a free country. *wink*

. The first company to import traditionally made virgin coconut oil from the Philippines (more than 10 years) was Tropical Traditions. The founders of Tropical Traditions are Brian W. Shilhavy, BA, MA and Marianita Jader Shilhavy, BS, CND.

  30. My eco-friendly tip is to always think twice before you buy something new. Can you made do with what you have? Borrow it from a friend? Find it used? Shopping therapy is horrible for the environment and even worse for your pocket book. Find ways to enjoy life without having to constantly consume more stuff. Life isn't about stuff, it's about the relationships you build.
