Homemade Coconut Oil

Homemade Coconut oil has many beneficial factors. I usually use it for cooking, hair, and body. Coconut oil is used in homemade natural beauty products, it is good as a moisturizer for skin and hair. It is healthy oil for cooking.

I use coconut oil as a body lotion, all I do is to add an essential oil like vitamin E or almond oil or any oil I have at the time and mix with shea butter, and I also use the mixture for hair too. The water from the processing can be used for cooking rice. If you’re not ready to use it, you can store it in the refrigerator.

  4. Blend with warm water  (use as little as possible). Avoid using cold water to blend. Warm water helps in extracting more milk from the coconut.

  5. Sieve it: Pour in a sieve and separate shaft from milk. Blend the shaft the second time to extract more milk. Sieve and make sure you squeeze all the liquid from the shaft.

Recipe Notes

You can use as many coconuts as possible. You can use the water from the process in another cooking. I used it for cooking Coconut Jollof Rice

If you can't remove the coconut meat from the shell, place the coconut (with shell) on the stove and heat for a few minutes then try to remove and try to remove it again.
