With the help of this recipe, you may be able to make an equivalent of the commercially sold coconut oil body butter by Kalinka here.
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 2 ½ tbsp. raw cocoa butter
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. beeswax, grated
- 2 tbsp. almond oil
Begin by bringing the cocoa butter, the coconut oil, and the grated beeswax together into a glass bowl. To the side, allow a pot of water to begin to simmer over low heat. Place the glass bowl into the simmering water and allow the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax to assimilate together as the cocoa butter and the beeswax melt. Afterwards, remove the glass jar from the pot. Stir in the almond oil and the sesame oil.
Place the prepared mixture in the refrigerator for about two hours. The mixture should begin to look cloudy. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and begin to whip it with a hand mixer. After about ten minutes, peaks will begin to form and your body butter will begin to look like whipped cream.
Dollop your body butter in a sterilized glass container with a lid and place it in a dry, dark location. Enjoy your antioxidant-rich body butter—especially wonderful for dry, chapped skin in the middle of winter.
