Lavender Grapefruit Body Butter

This is the smoothest, softest and most wonderful feeling body butter I have ever used. My skin absolutely loves mango butter. I have a few available on my etsy page if you are lacking ingredients and time.

1.5 oz shea butter

1 oz mango butter

1 oz coconut oil

.5 oz – .8 oz  jojoba oil (I eyeballed this one)

15 drops pink grapefruit essential oil

15-18 drops lavender essential oil

3 drops vitamin E

Combine first 4 ingredients in a double boiler and heat until melted, remove and cool in fridgerator for 30 minutes.
Remove from fridge, the mixture should still be liquid, add essential oils and vitamin E and return to fridge for another 20-40 minutes checking and stiring occasionally, as the mixture begins to become cloudy and solidify around the edges, remove from fridgerator and whip for 10 minutes until light and fluffy.
Place in storage container and chill for another 20-30 minutes. Remove from fridge, let it return to room temperature and enjoy.IMG_3232
