You love pampering yourself with rich body butter but are worried about all the ingredients that go into the store-bought ones? There’s a way you can make your own butter from high-quality ingredients so you’ll know exactly what it consists of. Plus, it’s budget-friendly! Here’s the recipe.
- 1/2 cup of shea butter
- 1/2 cup of coconut oil
- 1/2 cup of almond or olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of argan oil
- 10 drops of lemon essential oil
- 10 drops of orange essential oil
How to Make It
Fill half a pot with water, heat it up and put a glass bowl on top of it. You’ll mix ingredients while they’re steam-heating. Add everything from above (except the essential oils) and stir for a few minutes, then leave it to cool naturally. Put into the fridge for an hour, then take it out. Use an electric mixer to get a smooth foam. This is when you add essential oils. Pour into a glass container with a lid. You can store it in the fridge for better consistency.
