DIY Body Butter + face cream, eye makeup remover and lip balm

Updated: Jan 3



Ingredients:

1 cup shea butter

2 tablespoon jojoba oil

2 tablespoons fractionated coconut oil

1 tablespoon vitamin E oil

Essential oils of choice(I like lavender or rosemary) Or a dash of pure vanilla extract.


Directions:


1. Place shea butter, jojoba oil, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil in a glass bowl

2. Put the glass bowl over a pot of boiling water (double boiler)

Melt all ingredients together

3. Remove from heat and cool for a few minutes before adding essential oil- and stir that in to combine.

4. Cover the bowl and put in refrigerator until mixture is solid (1 to 2 hours)

5. Remove from the refrigerator and whip the ingredients using a hand blender.

Place in a glass jar

*When applying- put in your hand and rub hands together to heat up before putting on the body or face.

*Great for after a shower. Let it soak in for a few minutes, and put a robe on while you do your hair/makeup. My husband also uses this after showers!


LIP SCRUB:

Mix a small amount of body butter and sug in a small bowl to make the lip scrub. Add mix to a small lip balm container. Scrub away for silky smooth lips. 👄* I usually clean and reuse a glass lip balm container.
