Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a high quality coconut oil with higher antioxidant levels than other types of coconut oil. Tropical Traditions Gold Label standard coconut oil is made using the wet-milling method called "fermentation" which is the natural separation of the coconut oil from water using gravity. Learn about the different types of coconut available and find out more about the production of coconut oil on the Tropical Traditions website.

Recently, I used Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil in a boxed brownie recipe. Normally I would make my own brownies from scratch but that day I just wanted to throw something together for dessert. The recipe on the box calls for vegetable oil so I substituted that with coconut oil. I placed the coconut oil needed in a small saucepan to melt it down then mixed it in with the rest of the ingredients. In the end, the brownies came out delicious! I really could taste the difference and it's hard to describe it. I suppose I can say that there was no oily taste that there may have been if I used vegetable oil. I also feel like the coconut oil brought out the taste of the chocolate morsels.
There are so many other uses for coconut oil and we literally use it for everything! Check out some of the many uses on the Tropical Traditions website. The site includes links to different recipes. You can also see some of the various uses in the video below.
I also use coconut oil as a detangler for E's hair and sometimes even my own! The coconut oil smoothes, softens her hair, and smells great. Unlike detangling products, coconut oil is natural which makes me more confident in using it in our hair! I sometimes even use coconut as a skin moisturizer and for diaper rashes. You can find a guide for buying the different types of coconut oil including coconut oil for skin and hair on the here.
