Body Butter

DIY Whipped Body Butter Recipe

1-1/3 Cups of Shea Butter
1/4 Cup of Olive Oil (or another carrier oil of your choice)
1 tsp. Of Vitamin E Oil
1/4 cup Emu Oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract,  get the recipe to make your own here.  (optional)
20 drops Lavender Essential Oil. (you can use your choice of essential oils)

Directions:  

  1. Heat the Shea Butter slowly in a medium sized sauce pan until the Shea is in liquid form.
  2. Add in the olive oil and emu oil.
  3. Let the mixture cool for about 30 minutes, just before it fully sets back up. 
  4. Add in the Vitamin E, Vanilla Extract and Essential Oil.
  5. Use a stick blender to whip the mixture until its very light in texture. It will give off a “mousse” like consistency. Make sure you have blended your essential oil vitamin E oil and vanilla in well. 
  6. Package (loosely, remember it is "whipped") your finished product into a container.  I like glass, but use anything that has a lid and will prevent over-exposure to air.  
Have fun and experiment with different oils and fragrances!

Cost 10.55 plus container for 8 ounces
