Whether you like sweet or savory, Primal Essence Botanical Extracts has a flavor for you. They sent over some samples of their sweet and savory organic creations for us to try. In case you are wondering what benefits of coconut oil I am talking about, I will tell y’all 9 of em in the review. Let’s check out these fantastic ways to get coconut oil into your lifestyle:
Sweet Coconut Oils from Primal Essence Botanical Extracts
Cinnamon Sweet Coconut Oil
First off who doesn’t love cinnamon? Primal Essence gives you the true cinnamon flavor you are looking for in an easily usable coconut oil form. Sweetened with stevia for a touch of natural sweetness, Cinnamon sweet coconut oil is an amazing way to make the French toast of your dreams. Simply make your favorite recipe for French toast and add some cinnamon sweet coconut oil instead of butter to your skillet. Delicious. Benefit: Science has discovered coconut oil is full of fatty acids. These are the medium chained fatty acids that if they are not turned into energy the body uses them as ketone bodies* (basically this type of fat does not turn into body fat if you do not use it as energy). Can you say Yay?
Start with toast. Add a dollop, spread to the edge, and take a bite. Once you’ve returned from your happy place, imagine all the other exciting ways you can use Cinnamon Sweet to make your favorite foods even better. Heart-healthy and oh-so-luscious, it will quickly become an essential part of your nutrition plan!

When I first saw this oil I was wondering what on earth am I going to be able to make with it? When I gave it a taste the answer jumped into my mind. This sweet concoction would be absolutely perfect on a chicken or shrimp stir fry. Sweet with a dash of spicy ginger are also the perfect compliment to steamed veggies or even waffles y’all. Love it.
