  • 1/4 cup coconut oil pure, unrefined
  • 1 handful star anise pods
  • 1/2 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 3 - 4 drops lemon essential oil
  • 3 - 4 drops rosemary essential oil


  • Add the coconut oil and star anise to a mason jar and cover with lid. Place the jar in a pot and fill the pot with hot water until it reaches halfway up the mason jar.
  • Turn the stove on low so that it maintains the temperature of the hot water already in the pot. Allow the jar to stay in the hot water for 4 to 6 hours. Stir the contents in the jar every so often to help the contents combine. Be careful not to allow any water to get inside the jar as water will provide a breading ground for bacteria.
  • Remove jar from the stove and let it cool slightly. Strain the coconut oil into a clean, airtight container, removing the star anise pods.
  • Add the essential oils and mix to combine.  Store in container at room temperature.
