DIY Whipped Coconut Oil


Don’t let the cold weather dry out your skin when you can whip up a luxurious concoction at home. All you need is a hand mixer, coconut oil and your favorite essential oils! The best part about whipped coconut oil is that it stays in its fluffy form! No more ruined mani’s from scraping hard coconut oil out of the jar during the cold winter months when your skin needs it the most!

Step 1: Let your solid coconut oil sit out at room temperature for about 15 minutes. If your oil is still in it’s liquid form then leave it in the fridge until it hardens up a bit. Liquid coconut oil won’t whip up, so be patient.

Step 2: Get to whippin’! Use the whip attachment on your standing mixer or just use a hand mixer until the oil forms stiff peaks (about 8 minutes). If you can turn the whisk upside down without the peaks falling, you’re in business!

Step 3: Add any essential oils (like lavender), it will add that extra touch of luxury to your oil.

Step 4: Spoon your fluffy mixture into a pretty jar and store in a cool, dark cabinet.

Step 5: Enjoy it ladies! Use it as a moisturizer, or a makeup remover or hair mask. The possibilities are endless.
