  • Medium bowl and/or double boiler
  • Hand mixer
  • 8 ounce jar with lid



  • Combine the oils and butters in a medium glass bowl or double boiler. Melt them together, stirring every few minutes until combined.
  • When the oils have melted, add the essential oils and stir well.
  • Let the mixture cool until just barely solidified—I give it a stir every 10 minutes or so to check the consistency. Place in the fridge to speed this up.
  • Then beat with a mixer until the butter turns creamy and frothy. This could take 5-10 minutes.
  • Transfer to a clean, lidded container.


Apply several times a day to soothe chapped skin.
