Homemade Body Butter – 3 Ingredients

Ingredients –

1 cup organic coconut oil

1 cup organic cocoa butter

essential oil of you choice
Directions –

1. Measure out one cup of coconut oil and one cup of cocoa butter. Depending on the temperature of your kitchen, the coconut oil will probably be in a soft solid state similar to the consistency of Crisco. The cocoa butter on the other hand is more solid. I usually take a butter knife and hack at the cocoa butter container until I get enough chunks to fill the measuring cup. It’s a great way to take out your frustrations from the week!

2. Put the coconut oil and cocoa butter into a small to medium saucepan on medium heat. Melt the contents until completely liquid, and there are no longer any chunks. It usually takes 4-5 minutes.

3. Transfer to a mixing bowl and refrigerate until the liquid becomes a soft solid again. This took about a few hours for me, but I’m sure all refrigerators are different.

4. Add your essential oil to your liking. For this batch, I used two cap-fulls of peppermint, first distill, from my essential oil sampler pack I ordered from Brambleberry.com.

5. Mix until light and fluffy, similar to whipped cream consistency. This took me about 10 minutes on a high setting on my Kitchenaid stand mixer.

6. Transfer to a jar, and enjoy. That’s it!
