HOW TO MAKE GLOWING BODY BUTTER FOR DRY SKIN
Say goodbye to dry skin. This body butter for dry skin is all natural and effective to make your skin smooth and hydrated.
¼ cup raw shea butter
¼ cup raw cocoa butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1 tablespoon calendula oil
1 teaspoon vitamin e oil
15-20 drops of lavender essential oil
How to make
Take coconut oil and shea butter in a bowl and melt the oils using a double boiler.
Remove from heat once melted and let the mixture cool until it’s opaque (to speed this is you can put it in the fridge, but don’t let it solidify completely).
Next, it’s time to whip the melted oils into body butter. If you are using a hand mixer, add the all the ingredients including melted oils, calendula, vitamin e, and lavender essential to the bowl. If you’re using a stand mixer, add all the ingredients and the melted oils to the stand mixer bowl.
Whip until the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is light and fluffy – about 5-7 minutes.
You’re finished whipping when the body butter can stick to a spoon when held upside-down.
Transfer to a small glass container or jar and store in a cool place.
