Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time4 hrs
Total Time4 hrs 10 mins
- 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.
