Video: Homemade Whipped Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil Lotion

 We know that coconut oil is good for the skin...but getting it out of the jar? Well that can be a daunting, spoon-bending, jar-breaking endeavor. Ever since publishing our post on Saving your Skin: The Benefits of Coconut Oil, I have recieved several skeptical questions about how exactly to use awkward, solid coconut oil on the skin. I shared one of my favorite tricks in a post on Homemade Whipped Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil Lotion, and still get questions about it: "could it really only take one ingredient and just a couple of minutes?" "Is it that inexpensive to have a high quality moisturizer?" "Is oil actually okay to put on all skin types?" The answer is a big YES across the board, and here is a quick video to show you just how easy it is!

I have always wondered how to soften coconut oil so that it can be applied smoothly to the skin. This video is a great help!

Thanks for this. Friends and I were just talking about the huge benefits of coconut oil and the inevitable messy jar problem arose - I had no idea someone had solved the problem. :-)

Is there anything you can add to stabalize the melting/hardening point of coconut oil. I live in an environment where it melts during the day and then hardens at night losing the "whipped" quality and just making it hard coconut oil again when I use it in the morning.

One thing that you can try is to keep the whipped coconut oil in the refrigerator. Once the air is introduced into the oil during the whipping, it tends to stay a little bit softer than regular coconut oil even if cold. Another option would be to make a blended lotion with olive oil and cocoa or shea butters. Using these oils together can help the coconut oil to stay softer.

We have heard how good both coconut oil and virgin, cold-pressed olive oil are. So, my proposal is to mix a little olive oil with coconut oil to keep the resulting cream in an easier spreadable state. I am useless at guessing what proportion of olive oil would enable this and at the moment have not got the time to experiment. Just wondered if you, Elizabeth, Kayla or others, could give me your opinion so that I might get it right first time???
