1. Break the coconuts with a heavy blunt object, then pry out the coconut meat from the coconut shell with a knife. If the coconut is mature, the coconut meat should come out of the shell easily.

2. Rinse the pieces of coconut thoroughly and cut them into small pieces to help your blender.

3. For best results, blend the coconuts with warm water till smooth. Depending on the quantity you are making, you may need to grind in batches.

6. When done, cover the bowl of coconut milk and keep it in the fridge overnight.

7. By the next morning, the coconut oil should have separated from the water and caked beautifully on top like a frozen lake. If it didn’t cake, maybe the water you used has a high chlorine content. Try doing it again with bottled water.

9. Cover the pot and start cooking on low to medium heat. If you notice any smoke at any time as you cook, reduce the heat to very low.

10. Keep an eye on the pot and stir from time to time. Cook till you notice some charred coconut bits in the oil.

11. Set the pot aside so the coconut oil can cool down to a comfortable temperature.

Your coconut oil is ready! You can use coconut oil for cooking, for your hair and body. Store in a cool dry place and use as you wish.
