- ½ cup Shea butter
- 1/3 cup jojoba oil
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 2 tsp. beeswax
- 2 tbsp. honey
- 10 drops coconut essential oils
- 15 drops natural pineapple essential oils
Begin by bringing the Shea butter, coconut oil, honey, and beeswax together in a glass bowl. To the side, bring a pot of water to a slow simmer on low heat. Place the glass bowl in the simmering water and allow the butter, oil, honey, and beeswax to melt together. Note: you can also utilize a double boiler in this instance. Once it’s melted and well assimilated, remove the glass bowl from the heat. Next, add the jojoba oil and stir well. Add the essential oil drops immediately after and mix.
Next, place the glass bowl in the refrigerator for thirty minutes. The mixture should begin to harden. Then, remove the mixture from the refrigerator and mix it with a hand mixer for about ten minutes. Soft peaks should begin to form, and the mixture should resemble whipped cream. Don’t eat it! Dollop the body butter into a sterilized, sealable container, and store it in a clean, dark location.
