There’s been a lot of buzz about coconut oil lately. So when I was given the opportunity to review Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil, I took it.
As someone who is constantly trying to refine my health practices, I see coconut oil mentioned a lot: and recipes, and homemade remedies, and even topical uses.
What I like about what coconut oil seems to be selling, is that it promotes healing from the inside out.
What I’ve also found to be universal is that the type of coconut oil you use is just as important as actually using it.
Without question, the brand I see recommended the most is Tropical Traditions. So I finally decided to give it a try.
I’ve tried it and smoothies. I’ve used it as lotion on my skin. I put it on kids scrapes and cuts. I’ve even used it on my own psoriasis.
While I can’t say it hurt at all, I definitely can’t say that it has been the miracle cure-all that I hoped it would be or that I have seen people proclaiming it to be.
It was definitely not something I could stomach ingesting by itself. And to be honest, I have not used it on a regular, twice a day basis as most claim is necessary.
But such is my hectic life, and I do the best I can with what I’m given.
Since I’m not a fan of coconuts in general, I will say the Tropical Tradition coconut oil has the mildest taste of others I have tried that I bought in the store. And if you are going to Paleo route, it is an essential for cooking and baking.
But just like anything, it will work differently for different people.
I’m curious, if any of you tried it? I would like to hear your thoughts and more importantly your uses of coconut oil.
