Winter is almost here and while we are shopping for knitwear, coats and boots lets not forget the damage the cold air brings with it especially if like me you have dry skin and scaly legs(just sometimes), then you will appreciate a good nourishing body butter. But instead of going out to buy, Why not make one yourself, not only will it be cheaper but you know exactly what is going into it and truth be told it’s so much fun.
Shea butter 218g
Coconut oil 42g
Almond oil 18g
Avocado oil 18g
Blackcurrant oil 10g
Lavender essential oil 15 drops
Vitamin e 2g
I did not melt the Shea butter or the coconut oil, I just put it all together and whipped it with a hand mixer until soft and fluffy.
And that’s it! your moisturizing body butter is ready to be used, you can just put in a container and since it does not contain water this will be okay to be kept in a cool dry place or fridge but if you are not comfortable with the glycerine, you could just ignore it and replace it with another oil. And if you are worried about it been too oily add a little bit of cornstarch. All the oils and butter used are based on personal skin needs and simply because I love them and my measurements are mine and not based on any or butter:oil ratio calculation.
