DIY Body butter
DIY body butter with just three ingredients? Sounds too good to be true? It’s not! The best thing about it, this body butter is soooo good. Your skin will thank you -big time!
Because it’s just oil and butter -no water, this will last 6 months without any preservatives. This body butter everybody can make, it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients for you to buy. Which is also great!
My friend started Ostara last year. A company that sells online courses in how to make natural, organic, animal friendly and of course homemade creams and lotions.
It’s a free online course as well, both courses are very informative, with many recipes. And I mean many.
The courses are in Norwegian, but I will share (with permission) a recipe I’ve used several times already. I’m a big fan! It’ cheap and healthy and with an essential oil, you can give it any scent you desire.
P.S. Ostara also started an online store in February. I’ve got many treats for myself, and can really recommend their products.
- 2/3 cups shea butter
- ¼ cups Coconut oil
- ¼ cups Olive oil
- Melt the shea butter in a water bath (low heat, if not a lot of good ingredients go bye-bye). When it's melted, take it away from the heat and add coconut oil. This oil will melt pretty fast, add olive oil. Cover the bowl with plastic and put it in the refrigerator 10-15 minutes.
- Use your mixmaster and see how it turns to something like whipped cream. Do not mix it for longer than 5 minutes at a time.
