Skinny Coconut Oil Giveaway

If you haven’t noticed, I’m pretty crazy about coconut oil. Not only is this versatile oil amazing for cooking and baking, it also makes an effective cleanser, moisturizer and diaper rash cream!

I typically can’t taste a difference among the various brands of coconut oil I’ve tried, but that isn’t the case with this new brand: Skinny Coconut Oil.

It really tastes like raw coconut!

Skinny Coconut Oil is a small, family-run company that uses a unique process to extract 100% raw coconut meat from Vietnamese coconuts, never heating the oil above 75˚F. This cold-press process ensures the integrity of the medium-chain fatty acids and lauric acid that are attributed to boosting your metabolism! The proof is in the taste– it has a brighter, almost floral-like, coconut taste when compared to other coconut oils on the market.

Skinny Coconut Oil is 100% pure, all natural and the only coconut oil approved by dentists for oral medicinal use. Benefits associated with coconut oil include:

  • Boosts Your Metabolism – Studies in both animals and humans have shown that a diet high in unsaturated oils lowers the body’s metabolic rate, but coconut oil can actually raise the body’s metabolic rate, which helps with weight loss.
  • Helps fight infections – Coconut oil is the earth’s richest source of a special fat called lauric acid, which is also found in mother’s milk to prevent newborns from getting sick. This fat kills invaders that are harmful to the body, like viruses, bacteria, fungus and some parasites.
  • Improves Brain Health – Glucose is the main fuel source for the brain, but when cells become insulin resistant, as is often seen among those with cognitive decline, the glucose can’t get into the cells as easily and the brain’s main energy supply is impaired. Coconut oil can provide the body with an alternative fuel source, thanks to its medium-chain fatty acids which can be converted to a fuel called ketones. The brain’s ability to use this alternative fuel can result in an almost immediate improvement in the ability to process information and make decisions.
  • Reduces Risk of Heart Disease – The consumption of unsaturated vegetable oils, like soybean, canola, and corn oils, along with the trans fats found in processed foods are thought to be one of the biggest contributors to heart disease. These unsaturated fats are easily oxidized, which can cause a build-up of plaque on the walls of arteries. The saturated fat in coconut oil does not readily oxidize, making it a better choice for heart health.
  • Balances Blood Sugar – Coconut oil is a rich source of medium-chain fatty acids, a type of fat that is absorbed in the small intestine and immediately transported to the liver to be used as energy. Unlike sugar and starches, the body doesn’t require insulin to utilize this type of fat for energy, which is beneficial for both diabetics and those with insulin resistance. Coconut oil can also help stabilize weight, which can improve blood sugar levels.

It also happens to taste great! Since coconut oil is solid at room temperature, it makes an excellent addition to raw desserts, like my raw chocolate cheesecake and almond butter fudge, and works well as a vegan substitute for butter in most recipes.

    I use coconut oil in basically anything that calls for oil or butter. It also works great as a diaper ointment for rashes. Worked wonders for my daughter!

    I’ve NEVER tried coconut oil, in all of my years reading healthy blogs like yours and Chocolate Covered Katie, but I’ve been meaning to pick some up for so long, and I’m dying to recreate some of your baking with it 🙂

    My favorite way to use coconut is to put it on my…wait for it…..HAIR!!!

    That’s right! I put it on my hair 30 minutes prior to showering. I let the coconut oil melt in the palm of my hands and then cover all my hair from roots to the ends. I let it sit and soak into my scalp for 30 minutes and then wash it out as I normally would with shampoo. Conditioner is not needed. Since I added coconut oil to my beauty regimen it has made my hair as soft as silk. It is now shiny, glossy, and overall stronger.

    Coconut oil is a very versatile substance and smells wonderful. I also use it as lotion!

    Power to the coconuts!!!

    I love it as an all over beauty product (skin, hair, oil pulling) but my favorite way to use it has to be your almond butter freezer fudgen which by the way is AMAZING with pecan butter too. Next I am going to try it with pistachio butter. Can’t wait!!

    Some vitamins and supplements are better absorbed with a high quality fat present. I use coconut oil on my leafy greens for this reason.BUT… My initial tbs is used every morning right off the spoon with my fat-needy vitamins&supplements! Mmmm… Good stuff! I spend good money on products I KNOW to be high quality.Although I am still skeptical that there is much difference in the flavor of ANY comparable, good quality coco oil. *shrug*

    I love using coconut oil as a moisturizer. I love it on my gluten free toast. I use it in to bake and saute. After reading everyone else’s comments I will try it in my tea and coffee.

    Lately I have been using coconut oil as a way to moisturize my skin and reduce redness, dryness, and itchiness from the cold. It’s more effective than any lotion!

    I have tried and have diverse brands of Coconut Oil. Then I got a small sample in Conscious Box and it is now my ONLY choice for Coconut Oil, SKINNY. I have googled and read all about it and eager to get some. How do I use it: all other’s I use in cooking, baking and on my body; however, with Skinny I lathered it on my hair, face hands and nails and that will be how I use it for sure.
    I have always lathered my body with olive oil as in the winter coconut oil is not as absorbent, until I sampled Skinny Coconut Oil. This is a comment from my yogic heart.
