How To Make Virgin Coconut Oil At Home

Salam & hi to all,

I would like to wish all muslims around the world "Ramadan Mubarak"!! :)

Do you know that Virgin Coconut Oil has been nominated as the best oil in the world?
How to make it? its easy!

3 kg of coconut cream (you can make it yourself, just type how to get coconut milk in Youtube)
pour them all in a container
close the container with its lid
leave it for 2-3 hours, the pure cream floats
IMPORTANT!
 after you see the cream floated, put the container in the fridge to solidify the pure cream.
 once it is hardened (solidified) take it out from the fridge.
Note: coconut cream solidifies at 22-24 (an below) deg.C
next step is to throw the water.
poke with a fork or anything, make few holes
like this
pour out the water ( leaving the solid pure cream coconut in the container)
this is how it will look like
close the container and leave it for 24-36 hours
you will see the virgin coconut oil emerges, the protein and water
scoop out the oil
u need a filter funnel
put in some cotton
like this
2 pieces of kitchen tissues or cheese cloth if you have
arrange it like shown in the picture
filter the oil
VOILA! pure, crystal clear virgin coconut oil
tips :
 if you love recycling, you can use any plastic bottle, cut it like in the picture to make it as a funnel.
the remainder of the bottle can be used like what i did (be harmony with the earth :)

 I hope you can make your own virgin coconut oil at home, good luck !

  1. Assalam sis, just wondering, 3kg of santan can produce roughly how many ml/gm of vco? Thanks.

    1. Alaykumussalam. depends on how you extract it, whether using conventional or high tech methods and also the thickness of the santan itself has its contributory factor. if there is a lot of water in it, then i bet you might just be able to produce 500 ml. you would be surprised some santan can produce a satisfactory amount of vco.
