Winter Body Butter
The mix of rosemary, cedarwood and ylang ylang has a synergy effect of soothing, toning, refreshing and uplifting.
This blend is very hydrating and specially designed for dry winter skin.
• 55ml Shea butter
• 40ml Coconut oil
• 40ml Organic avocado
• 15ml Vitamin E
• 8 drops Rosemary
• 8 drops Organic cedarwood
• 8 drops Organic ylang ylang
• 150ml Clear clip-top jar
Gently melt the shea butter and coconut oil (unless you are using fractionated coconut liquid) using a double boiler - you do this by placing a heat safe bowl in a pan of hot water and heat using a low flame.
Once melted, stir in avocado oil and vitamin E. Now place it in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes to harden just a bit.
When the mixture has hardened slightly, get it out and whip it using a hand mixer for about 10 minutes until you end up with a thick whipped cream-like consistency.
Add the drops of essential oils, stir well and voila! It's ready.
Scrape the mixture into clean jars or containers. Store in a clean dry place and avoid direct sunlight.
How to use your body butter
Apply as a body lotion after a bath or shower - you can also use it as a night cream for extra moisture for dry skin or as a homemade hand cream.
