Introduction: Whipped Coconut Oil

My local Trader Joe's recently had a large display with jars of coconut oil. Some of my friends rave about how It's good for everything ranging from cooking to natural beauty products, so I decided to give it a try.

I love using it as a moisturizer, an alternative to shaving cream, and as a makeup remover. However, it is generally solidified in the jar and is not super easy to use. Whipping it up solves that problem. You can also add other stuff like essential oils to spruce it up. I decided to add tea tree oil, but there are other options like peppermint or lavender.

Step 1: What You Need

1/2 cup Coconut Oil

1/4 teaspoon Essential Oil

Step 2: Measure

Measure out your coconut oil and essential oil.

Step 3: Stir

Use a standing mixer or a hand mixer and beat for about 5 minutes.

Step 4: Scoop

Scoop the mixture into a jar or some other container of your choosing.

Step 5: Done

Enjoy your homemade beauty product!

I live in England - obviously the consistency of the cream depends on the temperature you keep it at. But I whipped mine a good few weeks ago now and it is still light and fluffy. Such a good idea - I used vanilla and lavender in one and lime, grapefruit and sweet orange in another.

I'd think it stays in the whipped form until it gets hot enough to melt again, then it'll solidify again upon cooling. But until then, and especially in winter, it should work!

it shouldn't. When it was poured for trader Joe's it was probably hot worshipping it adds air to it

It will just go back to being solid after a short while, no?
