Uplifting and Calming DIY Body Butter Recipe

I absolutely love winter, there’s nothing more magical to me than freshly fallen snow. Unfortunately with this beauty often comes dry chapped skin from battling with the winter winds. That’s why I created this natural DIY body butter recipe to help soothe my dry chapped skin.

Coconut Oil (Solid)

Coconut oil is a carrier oil that provides great moisturizing benefits as well as dilutes the essential oils to allow them to be safe to apply on your skin!

Almond Oil

Almond Oil is also a carrier oil, but it is in a liquid state! When combined with the other ingredients in this recipe, it adds to the whipped texture of the body butter.

Ravensara Essential Oil

Ravensara Essential Oil has a mostly medicinal aroma with a little bit of woody tones too. It is known to help with seasonal illness* which is an added bonus in this recipe.

Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot Essential Oil has great skin benefits along with uplifting and refreshing properties! It has a citrus warm floral scent, bright spicy, savory fruity aroma.

4 oz Jar

A 4 oz jar is the size needed to contain this recipe! As long as its at least this size and sealable, you are good to go!
