Read on as we take you through the ultimate guide to creating your own DIY body butter with natural ingredients…
What you will need:
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 3 tbsp cocoa butter
- 2 tbsp shea butter
- ½ tsp carnauba wax
- Few drops of an essential oil of your choice
Start with preparing a double boiler and melting the coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and carnauba wax in it. Make sure to sterilise the double boiler and clean it properly before using.
Once the mixture has properly melted, keep it in the freezer for good 25-30 mins, until the ingredients become hard enough. Keep in mind that they are not completely frozen.
Take out the mixture from the freezer and start mixing it with an electric beater until its texture becomes fluffy, whipped and creamy.
Add a few drops of an essential oil for natural fragrance.
Next, pour the body butter in a cutesy container and Voila! You have your homemade, natural and organic body butter for your dry skin!
