  • Nowadays,Coconut oil is touted as a possible aid to improve cholesterol and glucose levels, and also can be used for hair and skin beauty treatments,This tutorial will teach you how to extract and make your own virgin coconut oil.As a bonus, this coconut oil can also be used as a pre-wash treatment for frizzy,unruly hair

    Coconut oil extracted this way is best consumed and used fresh,but if you need to store it,it is best done in the refrigerator, as it easily becomes stale at room temperature.The oil will solidify a bit in the refrigerator but will return to liquid once back at room temperature

  • This recipe below will yield approximately 1/4 cup of oil, and it will take about an hour. You can easily make more at once by doubling the recipe.

  • 3. Scoop out the hardened top and place in a small cast iron pot (cast iron is best to keep stable temperatures). Sieve the liquid for any remaining bits of fat. You can use the leftover liquid for cooking, as it retains a lot of the coconut flavor.

  • 4. Heat the coconut "butter" at the lowest possible heat setting. The idea is to heat it just enough for the water to evaporate. Virgin coconut oil is extracted at very low temperatures; high temperatures change its composition and properties.
