I had a reader contact me asking about why their coconut oil wasn’t whipping up the way they wanted it to, so I figured I may as well write up a post about it.
What You Need:
1 cup of coconut oil (or more if you want, the amount doesn’t really matter)
Electric mixer with a whisk attachment
Optional: A drop or 2 of essential oil for scent (I prefer just plain old coconut oil)
1. Put your coconut oil in the mixing bowl in it’s solid state. Do not melt it!
2. Whip your coconut oil for 6-8 minutes on a high speed. If you mix too long it may start to melt, but you want to make sure you whip it long enough for it be nice and airy.
3. Poor it into the container you want to store it in and put it in the refrigerator for it to set for about an hour.
If you keep your house cool, you will be fine to keep your whipped coconut oil out on a bathroom counter or night stand. If your house gets hot in the summer, it will become a melty mess and you are better off storing it in the fridge.
That’s it! It’s so simple and it makes a fantastic moisturizer. Enjoy!
