DIY 3 Ingredient Coconut Body Butter
With summer just around the corner, people are pumping up their skincare routines so they can flaunt what they got. Whether you have oily or dry skin, the right moisturizer can balance the skin’s oil production, or restore much-needed hydration. Body butter does just that.
The bulk of body butters are made up of two very effective ingredients: vegetable or fruit butter and carrier oils. At EG, we developed our own body butter using occlusive, emollient and vitamin-rich mango butter, along with highly skin conditioning, smoothing and moisturizing Coconut oil.
Add a few drops of uplifting essential oils, like our Joy or Shine synergy blends, and you’ll be loving the way your skin looks, feels and perfumes. Just how incredible are these three ingredients on your skin? Here’s how to experience our DIY Coconut body butter for yourself.
What you need
4 oz Mango butter
3 oz Coconut carrier oil
Yield: Approximately 7 oz of body butter
Melt mango butter over medium heat in a double boiler and add Coconut oil. Transfer to a container, and stir in Joy or Shine synergy blend. Place in the fridge and allow to cool until it thickens, but doesn’t set. Remove from the fridge once thickened and use a hand blender or mixer to whip the body butter into your desired consistency. Enjoy the rich, buttery texture of this nourishing coconut body butter.
*Note: Joy and Shine are phototoxic and this body butter is not recommended to be used if you will be exposed to UV rays within 12 hours of putting it on. You may add non-phototoxic oils and synergy blends as well such as Lavender, Elemi, Frankincense, Rosemary, Allure, Aromance and Earth & Wood.
