Here is a homemade body butter recipe for you that will be much appreciated during cold and dry times.
- 1 cup organic shea butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup almond oil
- Some essential oils of your choice (be careful with essential oils as not all are good for the skin. For example, citrus oil may sensitise your skin)
On top of a boiler, melt the shea butter and the coconut oil before leaving the mixture to cool for half an hour. Mix in essential oils. You may leave this mixture outside and wait until the oils become half solid. After that, whip it all a few minutes so that it forms a butter-like consistency. Put it in a clean glass jar and it is ready!
Enjoy a nice and smooth day!
