How To Produce Cold Pressed Avocado Oil At Home

Salam & hi to all,

to avocado oil lovers who have avo tress at home and want to extract 100% pure, uncooked avocado oil..

you are going to need :-
4 ripe avocados. some were still good and some, as you can see were half rotten
2 spoons or a pair of chopsticks if you have!
a plate (made of alloy, or steel)

or you can use a stainless steel tray (i got this recently)

small cloth, cotton or polyester
THE PROCESS
(if you dont have a blender/mixer)
take out the seed/stone and put the riped avo flesh in a alloy/steel container.
press and mash using the back of the spoon until all turned smooth
spread the smooth mashed avo and make the layer as thin as you can.
add more plates if you wish to
put under the hot sun until they turned dark.
i left this 3 plates from morning till the evening in a day.

scrap it out using a plastic spoon. it looks like copra

put all in a container

put a small portion (1 table spoon) on the cloth and spread them

and roll the cloth like shown above

take the 2 spoon and tie the end of each cloth like shown above
twist and squeeze as hard as you can. strong fingers are better and weak ones ;p
from 4 avocados. uncooked and vitamins preserved.
look at the color! green and smells nice with no burning smell! real, genuine and pure avo oil
i like to keep empty perfumes bottles. see? i got 2 bottles of 10ml avo oil and a bottle of 5ml avo. 


your dont have to have a special machine to extract/expel avocado oil. everything can be done at home.

4 avocados can produce 50-55 ml pure, cold pressed avocado oil. i am going to make the small bottle as my eye night cream coz it has roller ball. for my facial moisturizer, the10ml (bigger bottle) is enough for a  month supply. this means my supply is enough for 2 months, since i have 2 bottles of 10 ml avo oil. cheap, easy and halal! i just love this outcome :)

just imagine if you have an avo tree which produces uncountable of avo fruits! how i wished i have an avocado orchard....

anyway, happy trying and good luck :)

  1. I have been waiting for this thanks a lot am so happy i used the first instruction you gave and i was able to dry them on the pan but i was clueless on how to extract the oil i tried heating the pan but i burnt my fingers instead so i gave up but now with the images i will try it once again.
    I noticed you omitted the part about keeping it in a room with 16 degree room for a day, is that not necessary cos i really though that was what caused me to fail the first time because i was able to get a room of 23 degrees then, i hope its not necessary.

  2. Hi there CB. the airconditioned room is another idea how to dry up the mashed avo so that we can get coldpressed avo oil. in my last post, as long as the temp used is below 40 deg, its considered as coldpressed (from my reading). so, if you have lots of dried avocado like dried coconut copra (also can use the heat from the sun), you can buy a small machine (there is a malaysian company selling it) and who knows, you can start your very own mini factory at home :)

    2. Hi Maryam

    3. Link below to Piteba oil expeller press. Just got mine and have made avocado oil, coconut oil/butter/flower, sunflower oil/butter, and peanut oil/butter. The dried out seed cake can be further dried and used as baking flower or high protein baking additive. The press is rather expensive at $150 plus shipping, but I love making my own oils and butters myself so I know exactly what is in my foods. I am strongly opposed to chemical preservatives and GMO's.

  12. hi Janeth, i dont have the info off hand, but have u tried to google it? type 'avocado oil presser/extractor machine'. the method i use is very conventional and for a very small amount of avo oil production..

  13. Thank you for posting this, I am trying to make a couple of products using cold pressed avocado oil. My question is what is the shelf life (when does it go bad) of the avocado oil you saved? Does it need a preservative? And also i know you used rotted avocado, does that not cause a reaction to your face, when you use the rotten avocado?

    1. hi there. the shelf helps the flesh from getting bad, it prevents the flesh from getting dry and therefore it prolongs the freshness. i have put a matured avo (soft) in a refrigerator with temperature of 4-6 deg cel. and the avo flesh stayed fresh for about 2 weeks before starting to rot. you will notice that the longer you keep a matured avo, the shinier the shelf would become. this means, the oil of the flesh moistures the shelf. so dont keep matured avo long in a refrigerator. about using rotten avo, the difference i noticed is the smell. oil derived from good avo smells better than the rotten ones, same like coconut oil. if the coconut milk is less fresh, then the oil smells stink ;p..about preservation, i am not an expert in chemicals, but i find avo oil last very very long, like olive oil does.

  18. I'm having no luck and I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong. I didn't want to use the other method because that seems like more of a coconut avacado and id like to make just avacado oil. I live in Ct it cold so iused am oven but the mass actually went through the cotton.

    1. Hi there Peter,

      this is considerably a very low tech :( if you have large quantity of avos in your area, i would suggest you to get the specific machine to dry up the mashed avos like the machine used to dry up grated coconut to become dessicated coconut. the machine to dry up and expel the dried avo copra can be found in alibaba.com pls browse to find out more about it. thanks for the kind wishes :)

  23. Yo,yo,yo...I won't even try extracting and then say thank you.you have opened for me a new world.I live in an avocado growing area..and the avos..are known as..Dogs' lifesavers because,our dogs are mainly left to fend for themselves..and what do they survive on?..Avos..but now with this method of how to extract the oil...they have competition.
    Thank you for the straightforward method.
    tomorrow,I get to work.Dreaming of producing barrels of oil..yipee...!!!
    You need it,i got it

  24. Maryam,
    Thank you for your posting. I live in Florida and have some extra big Florida avocados. Their water content is higher than the hash. Can I still get oil from them? Thank you

  25. Hi Maryam Chin! I hear avo oil is good for thinning hair. Would you say it's a good thing to apply the avo oil directly to the scalp?
