Homemade Body Butter

Homemade Body Butter
1 cup Shea Butter (organic/fair trade)

1 cup Coconut Oil 

Place into double boiler pan 

Turn on low to medium heat 
When Shea butter and coconut oil are melted, remove from heat and add 1/4-1/2 cup of avocado oil (Can use apricot, jojoba,olive or almond oil too)
Stir all ingredients and let cool in bowl of ice water. Place in Fridge for a couple of hours, until white and firm.

Begin whipping hardened mixture.
Add 10-15 drops of essential oil. I added lemongrass because that is the same scent as my deodorant. Lavender is another favorite oil of mine to use.
 I like to add my EO drops after I begin mixing.
