how you can make your own coconut oil

how you can make your own coconut oil and start enjoying the numerous health benefits it offers.
  • 1. Break your coconuts with a heavy blunt object and pry out the with a knife.
  • 2. Rinse and cut them into small pieces to help your blender.
  • 3. Blend the coconuts with warm water to a smooth state.
  • 4. Pour into a sieve to separate the coconut milk from the chaff. Then press with your hands to squeeze out the last drop.
  • 5. Use a sieve with a finer mesh to remove the tiniest particles from the coconut milk.
  • 6. When done, cover the bowl of coconut milk and keep it in the fridge overnight.
  • 7. The next morning, you will see that the coconut oil has separated from the water and caked beautifully on top like a frozen lake.
  • 8. Take the caked white coconut oil and place in a clean dry stainless steel pot.
  • 9. Cover the pot and start cooking on low to medium heat. If you notice any smoke at any time as you cook, reduce the heat to very low.
  • 10. Keep an eye on the pot and stir from time to time. Cook till you notice some charred coconut bits in the oil.
  • 11. Set the pot aside so the coconut oil can cool down to a comfortable temperature.
  • 12. Sieve with a chiffon cloth or a cheesecloth to remove the charred bits. If you still notice any charred bits in the sieved coconut oil, sieve again with a paper towel.
  • 13. Store in your cupboard and use when you wish.
