DIY Whipped Vanilla Body Butter


And I'm at it again folks!!! If you haven't seen my coffee scrub -> check out the post below on how to DIY your own scrub. After you scrub what's super important? Moisturizer! What a perfect little pairing for some spa-r-ific gifts this holiday season!

Ingredients used:
Castor Oil
Almond Oil
Coconut Oil
Vanilla Oil
Shea Butter

Directions: I used the infamous 75% 25% rule on this body butter creation from rawmazing blog -

But instead of the 1/2 cup almond oil, I used 1/4 almond oil and 1/4 castor oil and instead of rosemary, I used vanilla oil. You can use whatever essential oils you prefer as long as they are skin friendly! Feel free to add in cocoa butter for a chocolate kick or a little beeswax for more stability. 

I mixed the ingredients together as her blog reads and it is crucial for you to make sure the product is chilled properly or it won't set up. I made enough to pair with my scrubs this holiday season for the ladies in the family. After using the salted caramel coffee scrub, this vanilla whipped body butter smells and feels heavenly! 

I suggest putting this on at night. The oils need to soak into the skin and a little amount goes a long way! You'll also notice it looks solid but when you keep it on your hands and rub it in, it will turn to an oil. Just like buddaaaahhh! Enjoy!
