I have taken to making my own body lotion to avoid the carcinogens and unnecessary chemicals found in many of the lotions on the market. This recipe for homemade whipped body butter will leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. The coconut oil moisturizes dry skin and protects against the signs of aging. The almond oil moisturizes dry inflamed skin and stimulates blood circulation. You can scent this lightly (10 drops) or more intense (up to 30 drops) with your favorite essential oil.
Homemade Whipped Body Butter
⁃ 1/2 cup cocoa butter
⁃ 1/2 cup shea butter
⁃ 1/2 cup organic coconut oil
⁃ 1/2 cup almond oil
⁃ 10-30 drops lavender oil or sweet orange oil (my favorites)
Place all ingredients into a mixer or blender and mix until it is light and fluffy.
