All Natural Creamy, Whipped Body Butter (Easy)
Great to give as gifts for both men and women. My husband uses this after shaving, at bedtime and at the office. =)
- cup coconut oil, room temperature (solid, found in the cooking oil isle at your favorite grocery store)
- tsp. sweet almond oil or vitamin e oil (found in the vitamin aisle)
- a few drops of your favorite essential oil, optional but very nice
Body butter is a little oilier than standard hand lotion, making it wonderful to soothe even very dry skin. In this wonderful whipped form, it melts and absorbs quickly the minute it touches the skin. Coconut oil has a melting point of somewhere between 76-80 degrees. If your home is warmer than that, like in the summertime, simply place in the fridge for a soothing and cooling after sun treat for your skin. It will remain fluffy and light, just as in the picture, unless it reaches 76-80 degrees.
