I love natural beauty products and coconut shea homemade vanilla body butter is such a delightful treat, I can’t believe I haven’t tried making it sooner. The three basic oils used for this creamy body butter are shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil. The result is creamy, moisturizing and nourishing; your skin begins to feel smooth and supple pretty much right away. Good quality raw shea butter can be found here .
Use your Homemade DIY Vanilla Body Butter as:
On feet, knees and elbows, where the skin is very dry
On the face for dry skin
On chapped lips
As a hair mask
As a makeup remover
What else can it be used for, in your opinion?
There are two steps to making the body butter: melting everything, so that the oils combine together and then, when the product cools down enough, whipping it to make body butter. If you skimp on the whipping part, the oils are likely to separate and you would miss out on the light and fluffy consistency that actually makes body butter. I do my whipping in the Vitamix blender , allowing it to run on high speed for as long as 5 full minutes, but a mixer would be just as fine. Remember to stop your blender to scrape the walls and re-blend every once in a while.
