Tips On How to make cold-pressed coconut oil at home

Though cold-pressed coconut oils are readily available in markets, they are extremely expensive and what market made product can be better than homemade stuff? So, let’s take a look at how to make cold-pressed coconut oil:


*2-3 mature coconuts
*Cheesecloth (Muslin cloth)
*Large bowl
*Jar with lid


1. Crack open the coconuts and remove the meat (coconut malai) from the shells. You can do this by using a coconut scraper or a knife. Once the meat is removed, rinse it with water to remove any debris.

You need coconut malai to make its oil. 

2. Cut the coconut meat into small pieces and place them in a blender. Add enough water to cover the meat, and blend until the mixture is smooth.

3. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and use cheesecloth to strain the liquid. Squeeze the muslin cloth to extract as much liquid as possible.

4. Place the liquid in a jar with a lid and let it sit for 24-48 hours. During this time, the oil will naturally separate from the water and rise to the top of the jar.

5. After 24-48 hours, skim off the layer of coconut oil on top of the jar and transfer it to another container. You can use a spoon to scoop out the oil or carefully pour it out.

6. Store the cold-pressed coconut oil in a jar with a lid in a cool, dry place. The oil should last for several months if stored properly.


*Use only mature coconuts to ensure a higher oil yield.
*Make sure to blend the coconut meat with enough water to create a smooth mixture.
*If you live in a colder climate, you may need to warm the coconut oil slightly to make it easier to use.

Making cold-pressed coconut oil at home is easy and requires only a few ingredients. The resulting oil is pure and unrefined. Use it for cooking, baking, or as a natural skincare or hair care product.
