I love a new DIY especially when it if for skin care and contains coconut oil…does it get any better than that!
I have tried body butters from numerous different places. I like that they moisturize my skin, but some of them are too thick, and some of them contain way too many chemicals. This is a very simple 3 ingredient way of making your own at home body butter. It is pure and moisturizes your skin, keeping it silky and smooth. Not to mention it makes a really cute DIY gift as well!
What you will need:
-Large mixing bowl
–Electric hand mixer
(or container with air tight seal)
-1 cup Coconut Oil
-4-5 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil (or oil of choice)
-1 tsp Vitamin E (optional)
How to make it:
-Combine 1 cup of coconut oil, vitamin e, and essential oil in large mixing bowl
-Using hand mixer, mix on a low setting for 5-6 minutes or until the mixture is light and airy
-Spoon into jar and seal tight
-Store at room temperature
The body butter is meant to stay at the same state it is when mixed, if it begins to melt into an oil state, store in the refrigerator.
