Review Detail

Is it possible to refine coconut oil at home ? I do not quite like the idea of using an oil refined through industrial processes where the possibility of chemical additives being added to it are mighty high. Though freshly extracted coconut oil has a nice smell.

Hi Gemini! To my knowledge it's not possible to refine coconut oil at home because the deodorization process, the process that removes most of the flavor and aroma, involves specialized machinery. I'd recommend just sticking with unrefined coconut oil if you don't mind the taste- I sure don't!
