CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, June 11th, 2010


Coconut oil is both a healthy and great-tasting addi­tion to smooth­ies, shakes, and other yummy treats. Thanks to Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions, you get noth­ing but the best!

Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Coconut Oil is one of the first vir­gin coconut oils to be exported to the United States from the Philippines.

Brian Shil­havy (founder of Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions) dis­cov­ered the health ben­e­fits of coconut oil after mov­ing to live in the Philip­pines with his wife, Mar­i­anita. He believes that coconut oil made by tra­di­tional meth­ods is supe­rior to the mod­ern coconut oils found in stores.

Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions offers 3 types of coconut oil:

1. Gold Label Cer­tifed Organic Coconut Oil
2. Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Green Label Organic Coconut Oil
3. Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Expeller-pressed Coconut Oil

I found the oil to have a very rich coconut fla­vor, tan­ta­liz­ing to the taste­buds.  I even tried mix­ing a table­spoon of this oil into my cup of cof­fee (try it, you’ll like it!) and it melted instantly! When I used the oil as an after-shower skin mois­tur­izer it absorbed quickly and smoothly, leav­ing my skin soft, smooth and healthier-looking (not to men­tion smelling heav­enly!) The uses for Coconut Oil are amaz­ing, did you know that you can even cook with Coconut Oil?? I did not know that until recently! See all of the great recipes on the Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions web­site by click­ing here! We made a batch of banana choco­late chip muffins with with the coconut oil instead of but­ter or oil and they were beyond just delicious!

“Vir­gin Coconut Oil is a food, and is one of the best cook­ing oils you can use. It has been a sta­ple cook­ing oil for thou­sands of years in trop­i­cal cli­mates. As a cook­ing oil, its chem­i­cal struc­ture is kept in tact and there­fore is resis­tant to muta­tions of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cook­ing tem­per­a­tures, unlike most veg­etable oils. Research shows that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metab­o­lism, raises body tem­per­a­tures, and helps pro­vide greater energy which can lead to weight loss.”



Here is a pic­ture of a gen­tle­man trans­port­ing organic coconuts far away from the pol­lu­tion of any city or roads in the rural moun­tain areas of Mt. Bana­haw in the Philip­pines, in prepa­ra­tion to make Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions Gold Label Vir­gin Coconut Oil:


This grade of coconut oil can be applied directly to the skin for con­di­tion­ing. It is great for elim­i­nat­ing dan­druff. As a cook­ing oil, its chem­i­cal struc­ture is kept intact and there­fore is resis­tant to muta­tions of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cook­ing tem­per­a­tures, unlike most veg­etable oils.  

I defi­nately give Trop­i­cal Tra­di­tions a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this great Coconut Oil to everyone!
