Lemon Vanilla Body Butter Recipe
Silky smooth and super nourishing for your skin, this Lemon Vanilla Body Butter has an intoxicatingly delicious smell and keeps your skin feeling soft all day long.
½ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter
½ cup shea butter
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup almond oil
1 vanilla bean, scraped
40 drops lemon essential oil
Melt the cacao butter, shea butter, coconut oil and almond oil in a double boiler, and whisk until fully incorporated.
Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool (or set it in the fridge for about 30 minutes, allowing it to thicken, but not fully solidify).
Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and add them to the oils/butters, along with the lemon essential oil. Stir well to combine and set the bowl in the fridge for about 1½ hours to let it thicken up to a nearly solid state.
Use a hand mixer to whip the body butter (it will increase slightly in volume when you do this).
Transfer to two one-cup glass jars or glass containers with equivalent total volume.
