Like I've mentioned in previous posts (here and here) I try to use as little chemicals and weird stuff as I can (except you know, for polish..). Anyways, I've been meaning to expand these things to more areas. I started looking at what I use and if I could make it myself instead. I bring you: body butter! :) I got the idea from this recipe. I didn't follow it exactly tho.
I bought some stuff from this site. Ordered on a sunday and got the package the following tuesday so they were really fast :) For this body butter I used shea butter (from the site), coconut oil and rapeseed oil.
Melt the solid oils with the liquid. Seems vattenbad is called double boiling in english..? Anways, do that :p
Then I put it on the balcony for an hour or so to cool off and solidify (is that a word?) a bit.
Whip it until it's buttery and fluffy :)
Congratulations you have body butter!
I really like this body butter. I didn't use any fragrance so basically it's edible lol. Which means I use it on my lips as well. It has a faint coconut smell. It is a bit oily but that doesn't bother me, and it absorbs into the skin pretty quickly so. I will be making this again :)
Oh and the paper in the background is for some different green recipes :) I have a lot of products left to try and make!
