DIY – Whipped Coconut Oil Cream for Skin & Hair



About the Video Author:

The video author is Maicurls on YouTube.

This is easy formula is for both your Skin and Hair. Maicurls uses the “Oil/Cream” as a part of some of her mixed recipes and will add other ingredients to it. She mainly use the mix for her Skin (Face & Body Moisturizer) however, she also adds a little of it to her DIY Flaxseed Gel on occasion.

When making this you need to make sure your coconut oil is a semi solid (not completely melted down but also not rock solid) and you need to use a whisk to whip it up. You can not use a blender otherwise your oil will melt down due to the heat of the blades. If you use an electric whisk, the preparation time will be much quicker versus using a hand held whisk, but both work just as well.

We Hope you enjoy the video!
