Except for in the winter. I have very dry skin in the winter and for the past every-winter-that-I-can-remember, I’ve had dry, cracked hands that sometimes bleed. Not fun! I have used all kinds of lotions to keep my hands from drying and cracking, and some work better than others, but nothing like this homemade body butter recipe.


And I especially love this body butter because I can use it on my girls and not worry about putting yucky chemicals all over their tender, young skin. I really love using the lavender body butter on them after bath time, right before bed because it calms them down and helps them sleep soundly! Yay!!


It’s so simple to make this. It makes a lot and a little goes a long way, so it’ll last a while. The first batch I made was in April and I’m just now getting close to running out. What I have now will probably last me until this coming fall. Seriously. Oh, and my husband uses it on his hands every night too since his hands get dried out in the winter and he even loves it!

Ingredients:



Instructions:


1. Combine the shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler (or makeshift double boiler like me) and heat until melted.

2. Allow to cool for 30-40 minutes. It should still be slightly warm and melted.

3. Add the almond or jojoba oil and essential oils. I start with 30 drops and add more to your preference. I split it into two bowls and did lavender in one batch and stress away in the other. Unfortunately, though, once I finished making the stress away batch I couldn’t smell the oil anymore. But I’m sure it will still have a calming effect when I use it, but just not have the smell I love. Sad face.

4. Place the bowl in the freezer for 20-30 minutes until fairly solid. I left mine in there a little longer and it got completely solid. I should have taken it out a little bit before I did.

5. Whip the solid mixture with your kitchen mixer for 5-8 minutes until it reaches the consistency of butter. Scrape the sides periodically with a spatula and continue whipping until it’s all mixed together.

6. Place it in a container and enjoy! I use glass jelly jars from Hobby Lobby, but you can use any plastic or glass container you have. I prefer glass, but it’s not necessary.


Store in a cool, dry place and enjoy! I store mine in the bathroom and even with us taking showers and using a small space heater in there sometimes, the body butter stays solid. But it melts pretty quickly when I start applying it. It feels so scrumptious on my skin and I love that I’m just replenishing my skin with wonderful oils and not harsh chemicals.


Slowly but surely I’m turning my home into a chemical-free one! Baby steps, I tell ya! I’ll be sharing a homemade foaming hand soap recipe soon!
