I’ve been reading lots about coconut oil lately. Seeing lots of pins come across pinterest too, about all of the uses for coconut oil. I’m sold! I have been using it to cook just about everything in place of using olive oil. Then I read this post about the benefits of using it on your skin instead of creams. Interesting… The thing about coconut oil, if you didn’t already know, is that is it a solid. So getting it out to use on your skin can be interesting. Who want to get out a lump of gunk, wait for it to warm in your hands enough to spread around some. I was so happy to come across this article about whipped coconut oil. I had to give it a try.
It is the super easiest thing. Put the amount of coconut oil you would like to have in the mixer (I used my kitchen aid) and blend for 6-7 minutes until light and fluffy. It truly has a wonderful light texture to it and such a yummy smell! Put in a pretty container and you have a wonderful all natural moisturizer for a fraction of the cost of anything at the cosmetic counter.
(I purchased my container in the above photo at Hobby Lobby)
Thanks for reading.
