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.
