Stress Relief Body Butter with Mango and Citrus

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup mango butter
  • 2/3 cup Shea butter
  • 3 tsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp. jojoba oil
  • 10 drops bergamot essential oil
  • ¼ tsp. vitamin E

  • 2 drops cypress essential oil
  • 8 drops palmaros essential oil
  • 1 tsp. corn starch
  • 1 drop rose geranium

Directions:

Begin by placing the mango butter and the Shea butter in a glass bowl. Bring a pot of water to a simmer and place your glass bowl in the water to allow the butters to melt. Stir occasionally.

When the butters are melted, remove the glass bowl from the heat and stir in the grapeseed oil, the jojoba oil, the essential oils, vitamin E, cornstarch, and the rose geranium. Stir well, assimilating everything. Place the glass bowl in the refrigerator and allow the ingredients to chill for thirty minutes.

When the mixture has chilled, hand mix the body butter for several minutes. You’ll begin to see peaks. When the mixture looks a bit liked whipped cream, spoon the mixture into a safe, sterilized container for later use!

Body Butter with Avocado and Lavender Essential Oil Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Shea oil
  • 1 cup avocado oil
  • 3 tsp. corn starch
  • 10-15 drops lavender essential oil

Directions:

Begin by placing the Shea butter in a glass bowl and then placing the glass bowl in an already simmering pot of water. Allow the Shea butter to melt slowly in the glass bowl, stirring occasionally. Note: you can also utilize a double boiler for this step.

After the Shea butter has melted, remove the glass bowl from heat and stir in the essential oils, the avocado oil, and the cornstarch. Mix well. Immediately afterwards, place the glass bowl in a prepared, larger bowl of ice water. While the glass bowl remains in the ice water, utilize your hand mixer to whip the mixture. As the mixture begins to cool, stiff peaks will begin to form. When the mixture looks like whipped cream, removed the glass bowl from the ice. Place the mixture carefully into sterilized containers or jars. Enjoy!
