I have a great recipe for whipped beauty butter. I am not calling it body butter because this recipe can safely be used from head to toe. The ingredients are the purest you will ever use and it costs a fraction of what you would pay in the stores...without the preservatives, colorants or chemical based fragrances. This would be a great item to have on hand during the winter months.
I have naturally curly hair, and it's dry by nature. I find that this beauty butter sinks right into my hair, giving my curls definition. Also use it as a moisturizer under my make-up. I normally couldn't do this with store bought butters, but I can with this recipe as the ingredients are all raw and have never been touched by heat.
Now with that being said, every ones skin/hair is different so your needs will dictate how long your beauty butter will last.
- 1/2 cup Raw Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup Raw Coconut Oil
- 10-15 drops Ylang Ylang Essential oil (optional)
- Hand Mixer
Then mix the ingredients with a hand mixer for 5 minutes and let it rest for 5 minutes. Mix it again for 5 minutes and let it rest for another 5 minutes. If you like essential oil add it to your mixture at this stage and mix it again for 5 more minutes. Done.
This recipe yields 8 oz (or 1 cup) beauty butter. Have fun with it!
All the best,
