Body Butter Recipes

The following body butter recipes are all variations of the same body butter recipe to give you some idea of the ease and endless possibilities you'll find in making your own natural body care products.

Using choice ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter and select nutritive carrier oils and essential oils, you can make it perfectly suited to your own liking.

All it takes is one good idea and some time to play.

Splender in the Grass Body Butter

I've listed a few variations of essential oils that you can add to scent this body butter recipe, unscented it has a very subtle *green* smell to it due to the base oils used. The essential oils I've listed will give you a slight variation on this theme. If you aren't interested in obtaining this scent, you can sub other base and essential oils.

This body butter, in my mind is made to order for anyone who is heavily into natural and *green*. I added liquid chorophyl to obtain a deeper green, you can make it without for a very light green/golden colour, which may be more attractive to some :0)

.4oz white beeswax pastules

1.2oz virgin coconut de creme

1.1oz coconut nutri oil

smidgen of irredescent glitter to taste :0) I sprinkle it directly onto the parts of the mold that I want the lotion bar to have, it works beautifully.

This body butter recipe is excellent for those who don't like added scent, it smells great all by itself. Another variation is to use all or part Unrefined Cocoa Butter and Golden Beeswax. I'm experimenting with complimentary eo's. I'd love to hear any suggestions.
