Equipment

  • hand mixer

Ingredients

  • 100g Shea butter
  • 50g Organic cold-pressed jojoba oil
  • 50g Organic coconut oil
  • Essential oil of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

Instructions

  • The trick with this body butter is the tool.  I have tried with a stick blender (emersion beater) and a blender and it doesn't work. A hand mixer works well. I recommend purchasing a hand mixer if you don't have one.  You can get a very cheap one at Woolworths for $20.
  • Measure out all of the ingredients except the essential oils into a heatproof pyrex beaker or double boiler insert. Stir to combine the contents.
  • Place the jug in a pan of boiling water until the ingredients have all melted.
    heating all natural body butter
  • Leave to cool a few minutes then put in the freezer for 30 or so minutes until it is opaque. It should be firm but still a little soft. Be careful for it not to solidify completely
    setting all natural body butter
  • Add vitamin E and essential oils
  • As I mention above, the trick is to use the right tools.  I couldn't get it fluffy enough with an immersion hand blender and it took forever!  When I used an electric egg beater, the consistency was much better.
    mixing all natural body butter
  • Mix until the body butter is light and fluffy. Be patient, this will take some time.
