This body butter is extra-special because it contains frankincense, one of the most ancient and world-renowned elements. Two thousand years ago, it was traded at the same price as gold. Frankincense not only boosts your skin tone and reduces aging; it further works as an immune stimulant and is known to contain cancer-fighting elements. Because your skin imbibes everything you put on top of it, smothering yourself with a bit of frankincense every now and then may be the ticket to true health.
¼ cup coconut oil
¾ cup tallow
10 drops lavender essentials
5 drops Frankincense essential oils
Place your tallow and coconut oil together in a glass bowl and place the glass bowl in an already-simmering pot of water. Allow the tallow and coconut oil to melt together slowly, stirring occasionally. Note: of course, you can utilize a double boiler for the same effect. Afterwards, remove the glass bowl from the water and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the mixture to cool for three-four hours. It should be nearly solid.
Next, use a stand mixer or a hand mixer and form peaks in the body butter. When the body butter begins to look whipped and creamy, store the body butter in a sealable container and store it in a cool, dark place.
