Use your essential oil stash to make this creamy, dreamy whipped body butter! It’s the perfect remedy for dry skin and smells AMAZING.
1/2 cup shea butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup sweet almond oil
10-20 drops essential oils of your choice (I especially love using peppermint, frankincense/wild orange, or Serenity here!)
Combine all ingredients, except the essential oils, in a small pot or double boiler.
Gently melt and stir over low heat until the mixture is liquid.
Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to partially set up. (You can stick it in the freezer for a little while to speed up this process.)
Once the mixture is partially set and opaque, add the essential oils of your choice, and whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer until the body butter is fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. Apply to hands, feet, elbows, or any other area in need of a little TLC.
