Make Homemade Scented Body Butter
Edited by vanessa, Crystal, Jen M
Hi, you're watching VisiHow! This is a tutorial on how to make your own homemade scented body butter. Homemade body butter is a great alternative to store bought body butter or creams because all of the ingredients are natural and contain no chemicals or harsh ingredients.
You're going to need a pot of boiling water and a glass container, or a double boiler. You will also need some coconut oil, make sure that it is virgin coconut oil, so it's not refined. As well as some shea butter, vitamin E, and any essential oils that you want to use to make the body butter smell good. For example, some lavender, lemon, or orange. We can also use a mixture of all of these and play with the essential oils to see what smells the best.
Place the glass container inside of the boiling water. We will be adding the ingredients into the glass container.
Add a few tablespoons of coconut oil. Be careful because, for some people, coconut oil seems to clog their pores, but it is very moisturizing, so you can decide how much to put in.
Next, we're going to add some shea butter. We are adding 4 ounces. Shea butter has some essential fatty oils, which are great for our skin.
Add a couple drops of vitamin E oil. Once the ingredients are added, wait for it all to melt together.
When the ingredients are melted together, we can turn off the heat and remove the container from the boiling water.
Once the container has been removed, add the essential oils. We are going to add lavender so that the body butter smells like lavender. We're just going to put in 10 drops of the oil so that it's not too strong.
Now that the body butter is done, we should put it in a smaller container so that it is easily accessible. Transfer the body butter to the smaller container. If we wanted a fluffier consistency with the body butter, we could use a hand blender to blend all of the ingredients together.
Otherwise, put a lid on the container and put it in the refrigerator for about an hour to solidify.
