I have the driest skin! Well it is due to the fact that I have a skin allergy to dairy and yet can’t say no to ice cream! Anyway, this body butter is luxurious and moisturizing! Best part its really easy. Like I always say if a craft is not easy I probably won’t do it :).
Homemade Body Butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup shea butter
1/2 tsp almond oil
essential oil optional (I used orange of course) just enough to smell
Directions: In a double boiler add coconut oil and shea butter until melted, stirring occasionally. After it has melted take it off the heat and stir in almond oil. Place in a cool place like the refrigerator or even outside until it solidifies a bit and becomes thick.
Next, place the mixture in a stand mixer or a bowl and add essential oil. Start slow and bring it up to medium high speed until thick like frosting. Remember it is not frosting do not eat it although it will be tempting. Store in a container cool place (especially during the warm months). It may start to melt a little if above 75 degrees.
A Little goes a long way! Use a little bit and message it into the skin. It feels a little greasy at first but after a few minute it absorbs into the skin! Great for right after you take a shower!
This is the first time making body butter and one its super easy and two your body will thank you! Is your skin super dry when winter rolls around? What do you do for it?
