How To Make Body Butter
Measure oil and butter 1:3. For example, if you use 1 cup oil, you will use 3 cups butter.
In a clean blender, add a few drops of essential oil to the 1 part oil. Blend gently. Add the 3 parts butter and blend entire mixture thoroughly for 2 minutes.
Pour body butter into containers while it is drippy. It will solidify within a few minutes.
This formula lasts about one year in normal bathroom conditions. Enjoy!
