DIY Body Butter

My wife makes her own body butter and she LOVES it. Tonight she decided to get an early start on Christmas gifts for her friends. This is super easy and makes awesome gifts too!

DIY Body Butter recipe:

4 oz. unrefined shea butter
4 oz. coconut oil
10-20 drops of essential oil (your choice)
-mixing bowl
-electric mixer
-glass container for storage

Essential Oils your skin will love:
Wild Orange
Roman Chamomile
Ylang Ylang

Bring shea butter to room temperature. Then, in a mixing bowl mash the butter with a fork; add coconut oil and continue mashing. Then, with the electric mixer, mix on HIGH for about 5 min.

Add 10-20 drops of your desired essential oil and mix for a few additional minutes to fully blend. Store whipped body butter in a clean container (we love mason jars) and close with a lid. Keep in a cool, dry and dark place. Room temperature is fine. Your body will thank you!
