Tropical Traditions Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway

Coconut palms in South Beach Miami from my 2010 trip. 
 I received a jar of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil last month from Tropical Traditions. It was a promotional gift from Tropical Traditions and I was under no obligation to make a review or host a giveaway. However I really was impressed with the company, therefore I'm happy to share about the product and host a giveaway for one of my readers. The packaging of the oil was extremely environmentally conscious. The oil it self comes in a glass jar. Instead of being packed with non-biodegradable styrofoam packing peanuts like so many other products, it is secured in cardboard casing. The shipping box was sealed with paper tape as well, which is something I pay a lot more attention to now that I have switched to using paper tape.

The coconut oil itself is undeodorized and has a sweet pleasant coconut smell. I like it so much I made a new batch of vegan Coconut Lip Balms with it.

Now available at Aquarian Bath
I've also enjoyed using it on popcorn. I even made mayonnaise with it, which is something I had been wanting to try for a long time. Tropical Traditions has a lot of great recipes on their site with videos. Here is their demonstration video for making mayonaisse:
