Body Butter Recipe

With summer quickly approaching I want to make sure my skin is ready for short and tank top weather so yesterday I made Body Butter, and oh my! My skin feels so good today. This recipe does stick to your skin like butter and slowly absorbs, which has made my skin look so smooth and soft. I love when I use lotions like this on my legs too; it makes me feel like I have shiny super model legs. A girl can dream, right?

For this recipe you’ll need:

  • ½ cup Shea Butter
  • ½ cup Coconut Oil
  • ½ tsp. Vitamin E (No worries if you don’t have this, it’s great for your skin but it’s totally optional!)
  • 15 drops Lavender E.O. & 15 drops Melaleuca E.O. (or if you prefer a different essential oil-this is just what I used because they both have great benefits for your skin)bbmix.jpg

Directions: I used my Kitchen Aid to first whip the coconut oil and shea butter for about 10 minutes. This makes it nice and fluffy. If your shea butter is harder, you’ll want to soften it a bit by warming it up. Don’t over do the melting part though, you want it soft but not warm enough to make it liquid form. Then add about ½ tsp of Vitamin E oil, 15 drops of Lavender essential oil & 15 drops of Melaleuca essential oil. Whip it more!!! Put mixture into glass container to store. DSC04461.jpg

A little bit of this body butter goes a long way! If you use too much, it can feel a little greasy until it absorbs in your skin. I always make sure to let it soak in for a few minutes before I put on my clothing or jump into bed but the benefits of this all-natural recipe is so worth it! My skin looks and feels awesome.

*This recipe is also great for winter months, when your skin is extra dry from the weather.
