DIY Whipped Body Butter
One of the things I was most excited about when I started my essential oils journey was being able to make my own beauty products and household cleaners. I have been on a mission to create a chemical-free home, and essential oils have been absolutely vital to this. I revamped my hair care routine and have stopped using harsh gels and mousse, and have been absolutely loving this luxurious body butter. It's completely natural and safe enough for even my little one's sensitive skin. I use it as a moisturizer all over my body and on my face, on Elliot's, and even as a shaving cream. It would also be wonderful for growing and stretching pregnant bellies!
You will need:
an 8-12 ounce glass container (I like these)
1/2 cup solid organic coconut oil
1/2 cup raw organic african shea butter
15-20 drops essential oil of choice (I like lavender!)
Place coconut oil and shea butter in a bowl and whip with a handheld or stand mixer until fluffy and smooth. Add esesntial oils and mix again until desired consistency is achieved. The longer you mix, the fluffier it will become!
Other good options and combos:
Melaleuca (tea tree) + cedarwood for your man (think shaving cream)
Lavender + cedarwood (also a good combo for the gents)
Geranium +/- lavender (great for skin and smells so wonderful)
Peppermint for holiday gifts (stick with 15 drops)
Peace & calming or Joy
