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.
¼ cup coconut oil
¾ cup tallow
10 drops lavender essentials
5 drops Frankincense essential oils
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.
- 1 cup tallow
- ½ tsp. jasmine essential oil
- 2 tbsp. sweet almond oil
Begin by warming your tallow over a low heat setting in a pot. Allow it to melt very slowly into a liquid.
Take the tallow off the heat and gently stir in the sweet almond oil and the jasmine essential oil. Next, place the bowl in the refrigerator and allow the tallow mixture to turn back into a solid.
Remove the solid tallow mixture from the refrigerator and utilize a hand mixer or a stand mixer to formulate peaks. The body butter should be soft and almost like butter cream icing.
Next, carefully store the prepared body butter in a sealable container and store it in a dark, dry location.
- 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.
