There’s nothing more luxurious than a whipped body butter made from all organic ingredients, scented with some of the most coveted oils on earth!
DIY personal care products can seem like a daunting undertaking, but they are fairly simple. It’s really just like cooking! What I do is take a base recipe and while using the same proportions, change butters, oils and scents to my custom preferences.
Since learning how to make my own body butters a few years ago, I’ve been experimenting with my favorite essential oil scents. So far, my favorites are chocolate-mint, orange, rose, and this heavenly vanilla scent with just a hint of mint.
What Equipment Do I Need?
Not much at all! I use a glass measuring bowl in a medium-sized pot as my double boiler, a bamboo skewer, measuring cups, and a KitchenAid or hand mixer.
