Whipped Coconut Oil Recipe
You know I love coconut oil for my hair. I discovered this very simple recipe on Pinterest. Since making it I have been using Whipped Coconut Oil from head to toe. It’s both a great moisturizer for your hair and skin. There is only one required ingredient Coconut Oil.

What you need:
1 cup coconut oil
a few drops of your favorite essential oils for fragrance (optional)
What to do:
1. Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl. Note: Do not melt the coconut oil first. It will only whip up if it’s solid. A little below room temperature is ideal
2. Mix on high speed with a wire whisk for 6-7 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency.
3. Spoon the whipped coconut oil body butter into a glass jar and cover tightly. Store at cool place, or in the refrigerator if your house is so warm it melts the oil.
Tip: An electric hand mixer or stand mixer works best. A blender or food processor will not work with this coconut oil recipe, because they tend to warm the oil too much and prevent it from whipping up.
Note: Your whipped coconut oil should stay relatively soft, even at colder temperatures. If it’s really cold, it will become a little more solid, but not rock hard like it normally does.
