- 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
- 8 drops lemongra
- 8 drops lemongrass essential oil
- 2 drops cypress essential oil
- 8 drops palmaros essential oil
- 1 tsp. corn starch
- 1 drop rose geranium
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!
- ½ cup tallow
- 1 cup Shea butter
- ½ cup jojoba oil
- 2 tsp. vitamin E oil
- 1 tsp. peppermint essential oil
Begin by placing your Shea butter and tallow in a glass container. Position the glass container in a medium saucepan of simmering water and allow it to heat on medium until they are melted together. Note: you can also utilize a double boiler for this process.
Remove the Shea butter and tallow from the heat and stir in the jojoba oil. Next, prepare a bucket of ice and water and allow the glass bowl to sit in the ice for five minutes. Pour in the vitamin E oil and the peppermint oil and stir. Allow the body butter to remain on ice water until entirely chilled—another half an hour.
Next, remove the glass bowl from the ice bucket and utilize a hand mixer or a stand mixer to whip the mixture. Stiff peaks should begin to form.
Carefully scoop your prepared body butter into an airtight container and store in a dark location. Because it contains vitamin E, this butter should last about a year.
- 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.
