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 have started using coconut oil a lot more now. When I roast sweet potatos and cook eggs I use coconut oil which is probably my favorite way. Someone suggested putting some in hot tea so I will be trying that soon as well.

    My favorite way to use coconut oil is to fry up my plantains. I basically just use it to cook, bake, and top all my food, though. I can’t get enough! I also use it to cleanse and moisturize my face, which had done wonders for my acne! Love it 🙂

    I am a long time hug fan of your blog Megan yet this is my first comment – I am a little shy 🙂 But since this is about coconut oil I HAD to say something. I love coconut in every form and that is largely because of what I have learned from you (thank you!). I especially love using coconut oil in desserts. I add a tablespoon or so to cacao avocado pudding to make give it that extra delicious melt-in-your mouth creaminess. Coconut oil tastes great and I love, love, love its many health benefits and topical uses, to boot.

    Just pinned your post on Pinerest! My fingers are crossed!! I am curious, have you tried making coconut sun screen? I heard somewhere that coconut oil helps reflect the sun? It sounds to me like it would burn the skin, just curious!

      Coconut oil has a natural SPF 10 rating and I use it all the time not only is it protecting you from the sun but it doesn’t have any of the bad things that most commercial non organic sun blocks have in them. Also comparing SPF 10 to say SPF 30 you would think that 30 is 3 times more powerful. Wrong SPF10 blocks 90% and SPF30 blocks 97%. We all need some sun so I go with coconut oil for sun protection now. The website below is where I found the above info.

    When I lived in Fiji the caretaker family collected the copra, smoked three days over husks and then took to the processing plant to make oil. They used the oil for everything. I have used it for everything since.

    My favorite was “night night milk” for my kids… which was coconut oil with milk (cow or nut) with chamomile tea warmed… the kids drank it every night… after a divorce custody battle I lost my kids and will have to fight in the coming years to get them back… he had more money and the jump on me… what can i say about the world today…

    I just started a cleanse after my first thanksgiving without my children… so right now peanut butter fudge with coconut oil, asparagus with coconut oil… and in my shake this morning…

    Juice cleanse starts in ten days… so getting ready now… thanks! Great site!

    I use it as a sun screen and my skin has never felt so good and after being in the for only 2 months 20 minutes at a time my skin has never been browner. Also use it for cooking. It is the only oil other than animal fats that handle heat. I am Paleo and the idea that you are looking for light or reduced fat coconut oil I think is not wise. Being Paleo means i eat organic foods, no grains, no dairy and no processed food. I have been able to loose weight on this diet and I have never eaten so much good fats and oils. google it there is a heap of info also this url talhs about SPF of coconut and the sales pitch that is just wrong

    What can I say? I adore coconut oil. I use it all over my body, I use it to give my boyfriend massages, I use it for make up remover, and of course I use it to cook! This past thanksgiving I even made gluten free/dairy free pumpkin muffins, and of course I used coconut oil. I have now even tried it for oil pulling. I love the way it melts in your hands – it really is a super food. Recently I have been having a spoonful of bee pollen with a drizzle of coconut oil, that really gives you a boost when you get that “3 o’clock feeling.”

    What an amazing give-away.
    We are coconut oil-crazy in our house.
    My husband and I have two little ones (3 and 1).
    I started using it for cooking and baking and to fix raw sweet little treats for me and the kids. After a while I was so addicted to the smell that I started to use it as a “cream” everytime my kids took a bath. My kids have a very dry skin (excema at times) and we live in Colorado with a very dry climate.
    Then, I used it as a conditioner and to “wash my face”in the evening.
    Well, and now my little ones just eat it straight out of the jar..sometimes,my 3 year old sneaks into the bathroom to steal some coconut oil behind my back 🙂
    Couldn’t be any happier-lol.
    So,actually we use it for so many things.
    To cook,to bake,for treats,skin care,hair care,mouth care,diaper care,for massages,…

    When I’ve read your post I got curious on wether I would taste a difference between the one you had mentioned and mine or not.
    I would looove to try that brand and I am sure my kids,husband and I would be very happy to be a chosen as a winner.

So I only use it when making chocolate or baked goods. Do you ladies know some secret that I don’t? Does
    it really need to be refrigerated?

      Hi Anne, It does not need to be refrigerated. I usually keep some in my kitchen cabinet, and some in a smaller container in my bedroom for use as lotions, etc.

    Roasting sweet potatoes and butternut squash in coconut oil adds a great sweetness that my family loves. Perfect for this time of year! And of course, also helps my winter hands recover.

    Since I am a nurse, my hands get super dry, especially in the winter. I make a sugar and coconut oil hand scrub and leave it next to the kitchen sink. It really helps keep my hands smooth and soft.

    Coconut oil is my favorite multi-purpose miracle in a jar! It is a superstar in the kitchen and a beautiful soulmate to sensitive or dry skin. We use it multiple times a day while cooking and over Thanksgiving I introduced visiting family members to several Detoxinista.com recipes that featured coconut oil. The added bonus to my kitchen demonstrations was they all had very soft hands as they ate delicious, healthy desserts! My sister-in-law actually said, “You should start selling coconut oil because I’ve never seen anybody so in love with an ingredient that they would find a way to use it for everything in their life.” She may have been referring to my admission that I had used it, (out of desperation), to save an expensive art brush that I thought was a goner and it worked! My love for coconut oil knows no bounds. xoxoxo

    I use coconut oil for: removing eye make-up, greasing pans, getting rid of red bumps on the back of my arms, make-up brush cleaner, cuticle softener, raw chocolate, and smoothing back strayed eyebrows. I’m going to test it as an overall cleaner for pots and pans. I’m also going to try it out as a leather conditioner for my shoes…

    Sooooo if glucose(aka sugar) is the brains main fuel source, why would u feed your body more fat? The reason your cells became insulin resistant is because fat blocks the sugar from getting into our cells imparting our brain function!

    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 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.
