I’ve talked before about how much we use coconut oil and shared my list of 101 uses. We use coconut oil in everything from deodorant to toothpaste to cooking. I even use it in my coffee…
I often get asked and wanted to share my favorite brand of coconut oil: Tropical Traditions Gold Label. (check out the bottom of this post for a free coconut oil gift)
Tropical Traditions offers several different types of coconut oil. I like the taste of coconut so we use the gold label for everything, but their chart shows the difference in the various types:
Some of the reasons we’ve decided to use Tropical Traditions coconut oil:
- All of their coconut oils are organic and non-GMO
- All are made without the use of chemicals (unlike vegetable oils)
- Coconut oils are not hydrogenated and don’t contain trans fats
- Coconut oil contains high levels of Medium Chain Tryglicerides and Lauric Acid- good fats that support health
- Gold Level is hand made and has high levels of antioxidants
- All TT coconut oils are packaged in glass instead of plastic to preserve the quality of the coconut oil and keep any plastics from leaching in to the oils
We’ve completely removed any vegetable oils from our house and only use coconut oil. I love that my kids are getting beneficial fats in everything that I cook and it works great in homemade lotions and body products.
Their expeller pressed coconut oil doesn’t have the taste of coconut so it is a good option for those who don’t like the taste.
Tropical Traditions has offered to give you all a free copy of their Virgin Coconut Oil Book if you decide to buy something from their site (minimum purchase $16, first time order only). Just use this link and you will get the book free if you purchase at least $16 on your first order. You get the book free and I get coupons towards their products (which are a tremendous help to our family). Note: If you decide to purchase anything from Tropical Traditions through my link, I do receive coupons that can be used toward Tropical Traditions products and your price is the same. If you do, thanks so much for helping support my blog!

My homemade coconut oil deodorant works better than anything I’ve tried!
I love to stirfry in coconut oil and use it in sprouted flour baked goods.
I love cooking with coconut oil. I use it when I saute veggies. I use it in baking. Also as a moisturizer.
I use their CO for almost everything–cooking, moisturizer after shower, deodorant, and so on.
One of the many things I love about coconut oil is how many ways you can use it!!
I love that this coconut oil is actually GOOD for you! 🙂
I do use coconut butter for hair conditioner, deodarant, skin lotion, and all around eating…
Lost a lot of weight after starting to take coconut oil, plus so many other benefits you and others have enumerated so well. No need to take space on your page to repeat.
There are so many reasons I like coconut oil. I guess mostly it’s the health benefits, but I also love the taste and like how it prevents things like eggs from sticking to the pan.
I use coconut oil every day – for a moisturizer, in my oatmeal, for cooking and baking. It’s a great part of my health regimine!
