Yield: Makes about 1 pint
Preparation time: 1.5 hrs
1 Cup Sky Organics Shea Butter
1/2 Cup Sky Organics Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup SKY Organics Sweet Almond Oil
40 drops Sky Organics Sweet Orange Essential Oil
In a double boiler, melt Shea Butter and Coconut Oil together over medium-high heat. This will take about 10 minutes. Shea Butter melts at a very high temperature so it will take longer than the coconut oil.
Let the melted mixture come to room temperature and add the Almond Oil, and Essential Oil. Chill the mixture in the fridge for 30min-1 hour, until it becomes opaque.
Whisk everything with a mixture, and whip on medium for 5 minutes or until thickened.
Keep body butter in a lidded container.
