Tropical Traditions

I've done it now. I've gone and signed up to participate in the May NaBloPoMo. YIKES! What WAS I thinking?! The good news is that you do NOT have to post something related to the month's theme, which is play. You just have to commit to writing a post every day this month. You can still sign up! Just click the button on my sidebar!

So, because Tropical Traditions coconut oil reminds me of a fun, playful time in Hawaii, I'm going to host a giveaway to get this playful month started!

I adore Tropical Traditions products! If you've never had the opportunity to try their coconut oil, or even if you have, you can WIN FREE COCONUT OIL!

That's right! Today is your lucky day! One wonderful follower will win 1 quart of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

Y'all know how much I love me some coconut oil. And this Gold Label Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions fast became my very favorite! I love the way it feels (silky), tastes (glorious), and smells (coconutty).

  1. You really like it that much? I have some in my pantry, but I bought it to make soap. Do you eat it? Instead of what? Just curious. :) I really haven't read a thing about it.

  2. Oh goodness YES! I use it for cooking- it doesn't give off any toxins when heated so I use it instead of other oils including olive oil. I use it for oil pulling and various other healthful practices. I use it as a moisturizer instead of lotions. And I use it in my hair! Did I leave anything out? LOL

  3. I've had lots of of questions about coconut oil! Thanks for the information!

  4. Although I've never tried Coconut oil, I would love to as I've heard wonderful things about it!...:)JP

  5. BB- I LOVE it! Let me know if you want some other sites to check out!

    JP-It is FANTASTIC! We love it for everything!

  6. I read somewhere that you can use it in your hair, and it helps for more growth. For that I would love to try it. I don't know where to get it here. But if you're not sending internationally that's fine. May the best blogger win!
    You sound very convincing about this oil!

  7. Betty- It's not me. It's the company that's not sending it internationally. Unfortunately. Try doing a search and see if you can find it through a company locally. If not, perhaps Tropical Traditions ships to you. As long as they aren't paying. LOL

  8. I have never tried it. But I would love something to thicken up my hair. Some of the meds I used to take made my hair fall out!

  9. Robin- Give it a try! I am amazed by the many uses of coconut oil!

  10. I looked at this stuff Pam but it's expensive and I didn't know what it was like. It would be cool to win so I could try it and like it then buy it...or at least try it.
    Take care and have a blessed evening.

  11. I don't tweet or facebook so I'm just going have to be very lucky.

  12. I love coconut oil for sautéing my veggies and moisturizing my face, what's not to like about that!!!!

  13. Good luck to those who are going to participate. I for one do not care for the coconut fragrance, so I'll pass on entering.

    I did want to stop by and say what a great thing it was for me to open my comments this morning and see that you had paid me a visit. It's always good to see an 'old' friend [I'm not talking age here!!!!] stop by to say hello to me.

  14. Julie- Well, maybe you'll win! Good luck!

    Gail- Don't worry. I'll include you in the drawing anyway!

    Shawn-Me too!

    Anni-I realized that you hadn't popped up in my sidebar lately and thought I had better get over there because I know you've been posting! So I did! LOL Our Deanie doesn't care for the coconut taste or smell either.

  15. I love how versatile coconut oil is!

  16. I love how it makes my granola taste.

  17. I like the taste and that is is a healthier oil.

  18. I've never had any coconut oil, but I'm pretty sure I'd like the scent.

  19. Do you eat it? Do you tan with it? Do you add some rum and a fancy umbrella and get sloshed with it? I don't care, if it's FREE, I'm IN baby!

  20. Oh! I've just read your comments and I see it's for eating and other stuff. I'm still tempted to add some rum, though...

  21. coconut oil is wonderful! use it for baking, love it for skincare and deodorant made with it is the best.

  22. I am soooo exicited! I've wanted to try coconut products since I saw an article that promoted the use of the oil to reverse the effects of altiemers disease!

    Now I'm finding out how great it is for other "normal" dilemas such as split ends, dry skin, exema as well as pet hot spots! AMAZING!! Thanks for promoting a great product. I hope I win!! :-D

  23. Oh darlin'...I've used it as my night cream for years!!! Cheap and effective! I get stopped in stores and asked what I use on my skin...I get strange looks when I tell 'em. Heeeheehhee!

    God bless ya and have a magnificent week sweetie!!! :o)
