Coconut Oil; A Shocking Discovery!

Published

on

It is no longer news that the health benefits of coconut oil are countless and amazing. Be it for in skincare, hair care, weight loss, treating yeast infections, improving digestion and increasing immunity against a host of infections and diseases.

Coconut oil is also classified among the few ‘super food’ in the world. BUT, we’re aware that coconut oil is quite expensive. It is for this reason I’ve decided to show you how you can make your own coconut oil and start enjoying the miraculous benefits it offers.

Procedure

  • Break your coconuts with a heavy blunt object and pry out the with a knife.

  • Rinse and cut them into small pieces to help your blender.

  • Blend the coconuts with warm water to a smooth state.

  • Pour into a sieve to separate the coconut milk from the chaff. Then press with your hands to squeeze out the last drop.

  • Use a sieve with a finer mesh to remove the tiniest particles from the coconut milk.

  • When done, cover the bowl of coconut milk and keep it in the fridge overnight.

  • The next morning, you will see that the coconut oil has separated from the water and caked beautifully on top like a frozen lake.

  • Take the caked white coconut oil and place in a clean dry stainless steel pot.

  • 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.

  • Keep an eye on the pot and stir from time to time. Cook till you notice some charred coconut bits in the oil.

  • Set the pot aside so the coconut oil can cool down to a comfortable temperature.

  • 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.

  • Store in your cupboard and use when you wish.
