Win a Gallon of Organic Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil from Tropical Traditions

**UPDATE** This giveaway has ended. The winner has been notified.

I had so much success and fun with the Tropical Traditions coconut oil giveaway two weeks ago (congrats to Donna K. for winning!) that Tropical Traditions approved me for another one! And they upped the ante…to a gallon-sized tub! Wow! I know that might seem like a lot, but if you use it for as many things as I do (skin care, hair care, cooking, baking) it can be used up fairly quickly. If you’d like another chance to try this product, for FREE, enter today at the bottom of this post.

Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - gallon.Win 1 gallon of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?

You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

To Enter: 

You must 18+ and be a US or Canadian resident. Simply subscribe to the Tropical Traditions newsletter here AND leave a comment below letting me know that you did, or that you already are a subscriber, and tell me what’s your favorite recipe or way to use coconut oil. Is it for sunscreen? Bug repellent? Hair care? Deodorant? Do you have a favorite recipe for cookies, fudge, or snack bars? I had never tried it in my coffee until readers had commented in the last post that they enjoyed it in their coffee so I’m looking forward to hearing more new ideas that I haven’t thought of or tried.

This giveaway will close at midnight on July 11th. I will use random.org to choose the winner and will notify the winner via email. If the winner does not respond within 48 hours, I will choose a new winner.

GOOD LUCK! 🙂

Would love to have a gallon’s worth to experiment with, though!
