There are times when I really love to make my own personal care products and other times when it’s just too much 😜 although when you’re shopping in a store it’s almost impossible to find things that don’t have something toxic in them hence why I either make my own or buy from Young Living. 

‼️So let’s avoid the fragrance and chemical filled products in stores this season and whip up your own Christmas body butter! (Clearly I’ve been on a diy kick lately)

It smells just as amazing and is better for your health! 🫶

  • 1/2 cup shea butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sweet almond oil
  • 10-20 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • Combine all ingredients, except the essential oils, in a small pot or double boiler.
  • Gently melt and stir over medium-low heat until the mixture is liquid.
  • Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to partially set up.
  • Once the mixture is partially set and opaque, add the essential oils of your choice, and whip with a mixer until the body butter is fluffy and stiff peaks have formed.
Disclaimer: I only use YL for oils, especially when I’m putting these oils on my skin as many other ones literally say on the bottle that they’re unsafe for topical (skin) use
