Vanilla Infused Coconut Oil Recipe

***Note: Virgin Coconut Oil vs. Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil:

After trying it both ways, here’s what I think.

  • The virgin coconut oil has a stronger coconut smell, so the vanilla is fainter. That being said you could make a Creamy Coconut Vanilla lip balm. Sounds amazing to me. :-)
  • The infused expeller pressed coconut oil has a much more distinct vanilla smell. The vanilla isn’t overpowered by the coconut. I love it for my Creamy Vanilla lip balm!

Let's Make It!

Place your coconut oil in a wide-mouth pint size canning jar. Screw a lid on very lightly. Don't let it get tight. 

Add 2" of water to the bottom of a 6-qt crockpot

Put your jar with coconut oil in the crockpot. Turn on high until the coconut oil is mostly melted about 30 minutes. 

Turn your crockpot to low. Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. Then cut in half again. Place the cut up vanilla bean in your jar of coconut oil In the crockpot and stir.

Leave on low for 2 hours. Then stir it & turn to warm for about 12-15 hours. 

After It's Done...

  • You can strain the vanilla bean out of the oil. And pour it into a glass jar until you're ready to use. Or...
  • You can leave the vanilla in the coconut oil and scoop the oil out when you need it.
