1 – Orange peel
1/2 cup – Virgin coconut oil


*Begin by grating orange peel. It does not have to be finely grated, but make sure the flakes aren’t big.

*In a pan, add virgin coconut oil and heat it up on the medium flame. Once it heats up a bit, add the zest and stir.

*As soon as it starts simmering, you will notice the oil turning slightly orange. Turn off the heat at this point.

*Now sieve the oil into an air-tight bottle and store it in a cool, dry place.
