Since photographing this DIY session with Anna Leisemeyer of In Honor of Design, I have not found another moisturizer/body butter to love more! The scent is out of this world plus it goes on smoothly and absorbs beautifully into your skin. The body butter is a great homemade moisturizer and also serves as a sweet gift for friends, family, co-workers, fellow yogi's, etc. Plus the innumerable benefits of essential oils make this DIY project the gift that truly keeps on giving. Find the recipe and instructions below:
Wild Orange Essential Oil – 10-12 drops
Balance Essential Oil Blend – 10-12 drops
1 c. Shea Butter
1/2 c. Coconut Oil
1/2 c. Avocado, Almond, or Olive oil
1 • Use a double broiler and place shea butter, coconut oil, and avocado, olive, or almond oil in the top. Bring water to a boil.
2 • Stir until the substances are melted and blending. Remove from heat. Add in essential oils and stir again.
3 • Cover and place in the fridge to set.
4 • Using a mixer, beat the mix until it has a fluffier blended look and feel.
