DIY Body Butter
½ cup shea butter
½ cup cocoa butter
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
15 drops Grapefruit oil*
15 drops Wild Orange oil*
Measure all butters and coconut oils in glass jar.
Fill a large skillet/saucepan with one to one and a half inches of water. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add the glass jar to the centre of the saucepan to melt and combine ingredients. Stir every few minutes until the ingredients are melted and combined. (10–15 minutes)
Tip: Use a popsicle stick to stir for easy clean-up.
Once everything is melted, remove from heat and let sit for 5–10 minutes. Add desired essential oils. Once essential oils are added, let it rest in a cool place (such as the refrigerator) until it has set.
Once chilled, take out of refrigerator. With a stand or hand mixer, start on low and slowly turn the speed higher until the lotion becomes light and fluffy (around 3–5 minutes).
Note: Store mixture in a glass jar and keep in a cool place. If needed, re-fluff the body butter by whipping it back up to the desired consistency with a hand mixer.
