Materials

Instructions

  • Place the coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Use a hand mixture to beat the ingredients for a few minutes to combine them. Add the essential oil and continue to mix for 5-7 minutes, or until the mixture becomes fluffy. Use the rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl, as needed.
  • Transfer the body butter to a glass container with a lid. If you live in a warm environment, you may want to refrigerate the body butter so it doesn’t melt.
  • Use sparingly.

Notes

If you’re pregnant, you should not use essential oils. For more facts and safety information about essential oils and aromatherapy, check out the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy.
