Whipped Coconut Oil for the Perfect Lotion!



Sometimes we run across an idea that is so simple, and yet so wonderful that we have to share it right away- 

That is how I feel about this Whipped Coconut Oil Lotion!!

Especially if you have a KitchenAid mixer, this recipe is so easy and effortless, it will change your life...

Just take a jar of coconut oil, I certainly hope you have at least one on hand- I always have at least TWO jars- one for the bathroom, and one for the kitchen.  From now on, the one in the kitchen will no longer be a jar full all Winter long with hardened, cement-like textured coconut oil, that has to be warmed between you palms for minutes at a time until it is melted enough to spread over your thankful dry skin and/or hair...

Take at least a cup or two of hard oil, (as I saw how fast and great it all whipped up into a beautiful, frothy cream-like texture, I kept adding in more and more)!  Heck, why not- what a great gift!

Just whip the oil on high for maybe a minute or so- 

It will become the loveliest, creamiest texture ever-

NO MORE DIGGING IT OUT WITH A KNIFE!


I had two jars available with larger lids, to dip my fingers into easily... I'll have to get more, prettier ones for gifts!

Also, I did add a little Spearmint herbal essence I had on hand, and some magnesium oil for added health benefits, but both of those are entirely optional- it works fine with plain coconut oil.

So Whip it- Whip it good!
