Wash all the leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds thoroughly. Trim the pollen part from the hibiscus flower.

Drain the water and dry the ingredients with a towel. Now add all the ingredients except coconut oil into a blender and grind them into a coarse paste.

Meanwhile, pour 500 ml of coconut oil into a medium-sized iron wok and keep the flame at medium.

When the oil gets hot or when it starts to give out vapors, pour the paste into the oil and let it cook.

You have to cook the paste till all the moisture is evaporated and you can find this out by looking at the bits and pieces of the leaves getting crisp.

Avoid burning the paste by maintaining a medium flame. After cooking, let the oil cool down in the air.

After a complete cooldown, strain the oil into a glass jar or bottle. 

If the oil gets solidified over time, you can take one or two scoops of the oil and melt it in a microwave or just show the oil near a hot flame.

It is better to apply the oil and leave it overnight, then take a shower the next day to get complete benefit.

Method 2 

Wash all the leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds thoroughly. Cut the pollen part from the flower. 

Dry all the ingredients with a paper towel.

Take a medium-sized iron wok and add 500 ml of coconut oil to it. When the oil becomes hot, add all the leaves, flowers, seeds, and stems to the oil.

Keep the flame in simmer and let the contents get cooked for 10 to 20 minutes.

Stir the contents at certain intervals. Once the flower becomes pale, the oil is ready.

Let the oil cool down in the air. Then strain the oil into a glass jar.

You can use the strained out residues by adding them to fresh coconut oil and use them later.
