Therefore, a quick and simple solution could be to prepare your own body butter at home and avoid taking any risks related to your skin.
For this reason, we have here listed a quick and simple to follow Do-it-yourself or DIY recipe to prepare your own body butter at home.
So let’s begin the process.
To start with, remember that body butter is nothing more than a mixture formed by combining a liquid i.e. oil and a solid i.e. butter.
All you need to prepare your body butter at home is -
One quarter (1/4) cup of olive oil
One (1) cup of cocoa butter
A half (1/2) coconut oil
½ tsp Vitamin E
How to prepare?
Put all the ingredients into a pot except the lavender and vitamin E and heat until they melt and form a liquid state
Let the mixture cool down, put the vitamin E and lavender, and then put it in a freezer to further cool it for another 20 minutes until it turns hard
The purpose of the second step is to form a mere hard state of the melted solution and not make it very hard
So just after 20 minutes of keeping in in the freezer, bring it out before it hardens any further
Next use an electric whisk to whip this hard solution
Whip it for like 5 minutes or until such time that this hard solution turns into a thick oily cream
Your DIY body butter is now ready and can be filled into a clean jar or any container and kept it in a cool place
This DIY body butter is good enough to last for six months without the use of any preservatives or anything
