24 MAY 2014

I love finding new ways of doing things, so this super easy recipe (courtesy of Style Me Pretty Living) for homemade body butter is right up my street! Oh, and it's 100% organic, so there's no nasties, just wholesome, skin-softening nutrients. Here's how you can make some of your own...


1/2 cup of shea butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond/olive/avocado oil
5-6 drops of lemon essential oil (it can be any fragrance you want, it doesn't have to be lemon)


Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and place over a pan of boiling water. The bowl should not touch the water, but sit just above it. Stir until the ingredients have melted together completely.

Remove from the heat, stir, add the essential oils and stir again. Cover and put in the fridge to set. Once completely set, churn the mixture with a wooden spoon until the texture is smooth and silky.
