Homemade Body Butter Recipe
  1. Place all ingredients, except essential oils, in a double boiler (I use a mason jar)
  2. Bring the water to a soft boil. Continually stir ingredients (I use a waxing stick for this, popsicle sticks work as well) in double boiler so nothing burns on the bottom.
  3. Once the ingredients have completely melted and combined, pull the double boiler out of the pot and set it aside. We want this to cool until it hardens, which may take several hours.
  4. Once it is completely set, add the essential oil and whip the body butter. You can do this with a hand mixer, stick blender or food processor. Keep in mind the body butter will leave your appliances oily. I use my stick blender because it has minimal parts to clean.
  5. Once the butter has been whipped, scoop it into the jar you wish to use. I think short mason jars are perfect for this!
  6. Enjoy! A little goes a long way with this body butter. Also, it’s oilier than store bought body butters – let is soak in before you sit on a leather couch!
