Homemade Lavender Whipped Body Butter

I became a wellness advocate for DoTerra back in November and have since been researching new ways to stay healthy using holistic methods. Since using essential oils I feel refreshed, energized, clean, and health conscious. It is amazing. 
I can't wait to share different recipes and experiments I've tried since using these oils. First and foremost, I'm going to share a recipe I used for whipped body butter that I pulled from the DoTerra Blog. The great thing about these recipes are that you can substitute your favorite essential oil for a scent you prefer. If you don't like lavender, try grapefruit, wild orange, citrus bliss, or lemon! I personally love lavender because it calms my nerves and helps me sleep soundly through the night.


What you need:
Double Boiler
Hand Mixer
1/2 cup Shea Butter
1/2 cup Cocoa Butter
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
20 drops DoTerra Lavender Essential Oil

Directions:
1- Measure all butters and oils in glass jar.
 1. Measure all ingredients except for lavender oil in double boiler. 
2. Place double boiler over skillet/pan with 1-1.5 inches of water. Bring to boil.
3. Stir ingredients frequently using a rubber scraper or wooden spoon for about 10-15 minutes, or until all ingredients are 100% melted into liquid form. 
4. Once melted, remove from heat for 10 minutes.
5. Add 20 drops of lavender to mixture. 
6. Stir and place in refrigerator for approximately 1 hour or until mixture becomes solid.
7. Once chilled,  remove from refrigerator and blend with hand mixer. Start on a low setting and slowly progress to high-speed. Whip mixture until consistency is light and fluffy (3-5 minutes).



When finished, add to a glass jar or container and store in a cool place. If you need to re-whip, you can do so with hand mixer again and again. It's that easy!

Stay tuned for more recipes and ways I use essential oils.
