Day 341 – body butter

No, this isn’t a big bowl of creamy whipped frosting. But it is a decadent coconut oil body butter! I finally tried this after seeing it on Pinterest and I can’t wait to try it! Coconut oil is one of the best moisturizers since it absorbs so quickly and is a natural substance. I added shea butter too, since it’s also one of Mother Nature’s best natural moisturizers. The coconut oil would do just fine by itself if you don’t have any though. Rule of thumb, if you won’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin. 🙂
Make sure your coconut oil is cold and not warm or it won’t whip well. Also, be sure to use a mixer instead of a blender or food processor since they can run too warm and melt your new body butter.

1 cup coconut oil
1/4 c shea butter
3 drops vitamin e oil
(essential oils are optional for a fragrance)

Mix together until light and fluffy.

Your skin will thank you!
