Before I proceed to the recipe, let's see what coconut is and the benefits of its oil;

Coconut is the edible part of the coconut palm which is the fruit; the part which include its tasty meat (white), milk, oil and water.

Benefits of Coconut Oil
  • Coconut oil hinders infections
  • Good for skin health by moisturizing and toning it
  • Protects the hair from damaging
  • Good for acne treatment.

Now, after getting to discover some of the benefits of coconut oil, let's see how I extracted the oil from the nut by following step-by-step procedures.

Extraction Process

Step 1: break coconut and remove the tasty meat from the shell

Note: There is mixture of water and milk after filtration.

Step 5: cover it and keep it till the next day for the milk to float while the water settle at the bottom.

Step 6: separate the milk from the water into another bowl

Step 7: sun the milk for days to dry and watch it produce raw oil gradually.
