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!

Body Butter Recipe With Tallow and Frankincense

This body butter is extra-special because it contains frankincense, one of the most ancient and world-renowned elements. Two thousand years ago, it was traded at the same price as gold. Frankincense not only boosts your skin tone and reduces aging; it further works as an immune stimulant and is known to contain cancer-fighting elements. Because your skin imbibes everything you put on top of it, smothering yourself with a bit of frankincense every now and then may be the ticket to true health.

Ingredients:

¼ cup coconut oil

¾ cup tallow

10 drops lavender essentials

5 drops Frankincense essential oils

Directions:

Place your tallow and coconut oil together in a glass bowl and place the glass bowl in an already-simmering pot of water. Allow the tallow and coconut oil to melt together slowly, stirring occasionally. Note: of course, you can utilize a double boiler for the same effect. Afterwards, remove the glass bowl from the water and place it in the refrigerator. Allow the mixture to cool for three-four hours. It should be nearly solid.

Next, use a stand mixer or a hand mixer and form peaks in the body butter. When the body butter begins to look whipped and creamy, store the body butter in a sealable container and store it in a cool, dark place.
