1/4 cup organic coconut oil
1/4 cup organic shea butter
1/4 cup organic cocoa butter
1 tablespoon Vitamin E oil
1 teaspoon Vitamin D oil (I used Vitamin D soft gels and broke them open for the oil)
3-5 drops essential oil (I used Young Living “Peace & Calming”
1. In a small, microwave-safe mixing bowl, add the coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, and Vitamin E and D. Place the bowl in the microwave and heat the ingredients for about one minute or until the butters and oils are melted together.
2. Remove bowl from microwave and stir in your essential oil to the mixture. Place the bowl in the freezer for about 25-35 minutes until it has set about three quarters of the way. You will want some of the oils to be unfrozen so it can mix in.
3. Using a hand mixer on the lowest speed, blend the mixture until it becomes a creamy consistency. Once you see folds in the body butter, it is set. (If you overmix it and it solidifies, place it back in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it. Alternately, if it gets too runny, place it in the freezer for about five minutes to thicken it to your desire consistency.)
4. Transfer for your mixture into a sealed container and store in a cool place at room temperature.
5. Lather up!
