This body butter is great recipe with Unrefined Shea Butter , Unrefined Cocoa butter and Unrefined Coconut Oil with lavender fragrance which literally melts on your skin .
Why I use this Body Butter :
This body butter is made with unrefined , all-natural ingredients , which is good for skin. And I know what I am using on skin which makes my skin feel breathable with no added chemicals and alcohol which is often seen in store bought Body Butters. I prefer making my own skincare products than buying them in a store , not only because I can be sure of all the ingredients are all-natural, but also because I enjoy the process making it on my own.
I use this body butter on my 8 month old son as he has eczema and extra dry skin , I noticed his eczema got reduced a lot and his skin became soft and keeps it moisturized long way. I usually apply on him little after shower and throughly apply before he goes to bed to give it some time so that skin absorbs well. I used this my entire pregnancy especially on my tummy to keep my skin moisturized and I am still using it for my little stretch marks what I got in my 9th month pregnancy , I see a significant difference in fading away those stretch marks. My hubby loves it too , he is usually back of me to make it again if we ran over the body butter as he has dry skin too.
This truly become a skin care routine for our complete family.

How to make Whipped Body Butter :
Step 1: Combine equal proportions of cocoa Butter , Shea Butter , Coconut Butter in a mixing bowl.
Step 2: Heat all ingredients over Medium Low heat in a Double boiler until the mixture is a liquid.
Do not heat directly as it looses it’s nutrients, remove the double boiler once the oil seems clear .
Step 3: Remove from heat , allow it to room temperature and add Almond Oil, Vitamin E and Lavender essential oil
Step 4: Now keep the mixture in fridge for 1 hour , until the mixture solidifies (see the texture in the image for reference).
Step 5: Remove it from fridge and using a hand mixer whip it continuously for at least 10 minutes until it’s fluffy and stiff peaks form .
Step 6: Keep it in fridge for 1 more hour and whip it again until its fluffy to get the Body butter done. This step is optional to make your body butter extra fluffy . I do this extra step for mine.
