Winter is a time full of holiday travels and more time spent outdoors in the chill and winds than we might be prepared for. As beautiful as it may be, the cold winter weather isn’t always kind to skin, often causing issues such as excessive dryness and irritation. This is the time of year that everyone in the family may need a little extra help keeping their skin moisturized and happy. This smooth and decadent whipped body butter is packed full of nourishing ingredients that can help to soothe and hydrate. Fractionated coconut oil and sweet almond oil absorb easily into the skin, allowing their potent moisturizing properties to penetrate deeply. Shea butter and cocoa butter may also aid in hydrating while also creating a barrier on the skin to keep moisture locked in where it is needed most. Amber Glow Fragrance Oil and Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil combine to create a warm and velvety aroma that wraps the skin in sensuous warmth. This recipe is formulated to make multiple jars so every member of the family can have one on hand and we can gift them to visiting loved ones.
- 4oz of Cocoa Butter Natural Wafers
- 4oz of Unrefined Shea Butter
- 4oz of Sweet Almond Oil
- 2oz of Fractionated Coconut Oil
- 5ml of Amber Glow Fragrance Oil
- 5ml of Sandalwood Vanilla Fragrance Oil
- Add cocoa butter and shea butter to a heat-safe bowl and place on top of a pot with a few inches of water in it. Bring the water to a boil and stir the oils until fully melted.
- Remove from heat and thoroughly mix in the sweet almond oil, fractionated coconut oil, peppermint essential oil, and vanilla fragrance oil.
- Chill in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes or until the mixture begins to firm but is not completely hardened.
- Once chilled, use a hand mixer to mix until you get a fluffy whipped consistency. If the mixture is too soft or isn't whipping, place it back in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and whip again.
- Scoop into airtight jars and give them as gifts to friends and family.
To use, apply all of the body and gently smooth into dry skin.
