So I was short on the bucks this holiday season and made a slew or organic beautifying products to save on cash and learn a few things. Here's what you'll need
Jar (I used mason jars)
3/4 cup of coconut oil
2 drops of Lavander essential oil (make sure you purchase yours at a health food store to ensure against topical irritation. Some "essential oils" are actually just fragrance)
1/2 cup of Coconut butter or Shea butter
1/4 cup almond oil
Place the coconut oil, butter and oil into a bowl and whip together. It will be more of a liquidy form. Place in refrigerator for 5 minutes. Remove from fridge and whip again this time add 2 drops of lavender oil. Place in refrigerator again. Remove and whip. Repeat this step a total of four or five times. The final time you remove from the refrigerator and whip it will be ready to pour into jar. Mason jars work the best because they are intended for preserving. Store your body butter in a cool and dry place so the oils don't separate. Coconut is an excellent source of vitamins and is excellent for softening skin, dulling scars and stretch marks and is even amazing for your hair!! It reduces frizz and adds essential proteins to the hair. Enjoy your yummy body butter. Stay tuned for my Raw sugar coconut scrub!!
