I am OBSESSED with soft skin.
I love applying it and love the way it feels on my skin. What I don’t love is all the chemicals in the lotions we buy at the store. Don’t believe me? Look your lotion up on the EWG website, gross was my reaction.
Making my own body butter is easy, inexpensive and fun!! One of the best parts is, you are completely in control of the way it smells. By playing with different essential oils you can come up with your own custom scent!
1/2 cup organic shea butter
1/4 cup organic coconut oil
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
20-30 drops of essential oil (where to buy)
For this blend I used:
10 drops Lavender
10 drops Geranium
5 drops Frankincense
5 drops Cedarwood
Combine all ingredients, except the essential oils, in a small glass measuring cup or double boiler.
Gently melt and stir over medium-low heat until the mixture is liquid.
Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to partially set up.
Once the mixture is partially set, add the essential oils of your choice, and whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer until the body butter is fluffy and stiff peaks have formed.
The body butter in the photo is done, see how it holds its shape?
Spoon the finished body butter into a cute little jar. Apply as needed to dry skin anywhere on your body, or give it as a gift!
It’s really important to allow the body butter to set up, otherwise it won’t whip. I’ve found it’s ready to whip when I can stick my finger in the middle and it will hold the indentation.
