Essential oil infused body butter

It’s so fluffy, you’re going to want to die.

This past Christmas, I wanted to make homemade gifts using my essential oils. Body butter was on the list, but after doing research, I quickly crossed it out because it sounded way too complicated. After my bath bomb fail I was admitting defeat and moving on…

And then Young Living came in clutch with a DIY video of their body butter recipe. It looked so much simpler, so I thought okay lets do this.

And simple it was. Simple it is.

Bodacious Body Butter

Makes roughly 4, 4oz. jars

TO GET:

1 Cup Coconut Oil

1 Cup Shea Butter (Organic, raw Shea Butter)

4, 4oz. jars

10 drops of essential oil of choice. I used Joy in one, Jade Lemon in another and Frankincense and Lavender combination in the last.

TO DO:

Melt Shea Butter and Coconut oil in a pan on medium heat until melted. Stir as needed and be careful not to burn.

Once melted, pour into a glass bowl and let sit until hard.

I set mine outside in the 20 degree Iowa weather and it seemed to do really well when it was cold.

Once it has hardened together, Add essential oils.

Use your hand mixer and whip for 10 minutes.

I recommend splitting the batch in half when you whip. It makes it easier and turns out a little better. Plus, you can make two of your favorite essential oil combinations that way. 🙂

Place in jar. Make cute label.

ENJOY! 

I am absolutely in love. And if you didn’t catch my reference before…It’s so fluffy, I died. It’s so moisturizing and soft. Sorry, just really excited to share. Another note…don’t double the recipe or you’ll have body butter out of your ears. I filled about 10 4oz. jars with a double batch…BUT this is great for all of you followers. I am sharing a jar with one lucky reader!
