Vegetable glycerin is the anti-bacterial agent in this avocado-rich body butter. It further brings oxygen into your blood and is quite a rejuvenating moisturizer. The anti-itch element comes upon application.
- 2 cups Shea butter
- ½ cup cocoa butter
- ¼ cup avocado oil
- 2 tbsp. vegetable glycerin
- 2 tsp. gluten-free colloidal oatmeal
Begin by placing the Shea butter in a food processor. Pulse the Shea butter several times. As the processor continues to run, add the avocado oil and the vegetable glycerin.
To the side, place the cocoa butter in a small glass bowl. Allow a pot of water to come to a simmer, and place the cocoa butter glass bowl in the center of the pot, allowing the cocoa butter to melt. After the cocoa butter melts, remove it from the heat.
Add the cocoa butter to the food processor and mix well until everything is perfectly assimilated. Scoop the mixture into a sealable container and store in a clean, dry, and dark location.
For the anti-itch benefits, add 2 teaspoons of gluten-free colloidal oatmeal for each ½ cup of body butter and apply to any itchy area for total rejuvenation. This will soothe your skin and reduce inflammation.
