- Melt Shea butter, oils, and beeswax in a double boiler or in a glass bowl placed in a pan of simmering water.
- Add essential oils. Stir.
- Let oil mixture cool somewhat (15- 30 minutes).
- Place oil mixture in the refrigerator until it is almost completely solidified. This will be when you can touch the mixture and it is not quite completely hard. Your finger will leave an indentation in the mixture. It will be opaque in color.
- Whip the mixture with a hand or stand mixer until it is light and fluffy, which is about 10 to 15 minutes.
- Store this your DIY Body Butter in an airtight container at room temperature. While a little of this body butter goes a long way, you’ll want to have plenty of it on hand, especially with the dry winter months coming. Your skin will love this smooth and silky Easy DIY Body Butter all year long. It’s definitely a treat for the skin!
