Virgin Coconut OIl






 I and my H had a workout breaking coconuts and then getting through the process.But the final product was pleasing.
If you want to develop your bisceps and triceps try this out!!!!!!!!!




You need 8 to 10 coconuts for approx 200 mls oil.Break the coconuts,remove the shells and finely dry grind it. Steam the grated coconut. To extract the coconut milk, use a thin cotton or muslin cloth to squeeze out the milk.Take a heavy bottom pan, pour the milk into this and stir it on a low flame.Initially the milk will become thick then it will separate like curdled milk. Slowly the oil will appear.Once the milk solids separates from the oil you can increase the flame.You need to keep it on flame until the milk solids are brown in colour. The brown thing called kakka needs to be strained out. Store in a glass jar.




Virgin coconut oil to be given to children with hot rice.Also it is very good conditioner and skin moisturiser. But do apply it before bath not after:).
