HOMEMADE BODY BUTTER RECIPE

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup shea butter

4 oz of Olive Oil

About 30-40 drops of Peppermint Oil

Directions:

Using a saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut oil and Shea butter together completely until they are liquefied. Pour into a stainless steel bowl then sit it in fridge. Once it starts to harden back up (this could take anywhere from a few hours to overnight), whip it up for a few minutes with the mixer until it is light and fluffy like cake icing. Slowly add the liquid carrier oil as it is whipping, along with any essential oils you want to add. Then take the mixture and add it to a glass jar with a lid. Your finished product should be thick but fluffy peppermint body butter. Enjoy.
