SUPPLIES

  • ½ cup shea butter
  • ½ cup cocoa butter
  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • 15 drops White Grapefruit essential oil
  • 15 drops essential oil of choice

Recommendations: Pair White Grapefruit essential oil with Wild Orange oil, Bergamot oil, Geranium oil, Lavender oil, or Peppermint oil. 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Measure all ingredients except for the essential oils in glass jar.
  2. Fill a large saucepan with one to one and a half inches of water and bring just to a boil.
  3. Adjust the heat to maintain a simmer, then add the glass jar to the center of the saucepan to melt the ingredients together, stirring every few minutes to combine well. 
  4. Once melted and mixed thoroughly, remove from heat and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Add desired essential oils.
  5. After adding essential oils, let the mixture rest in the refrigerator until it has set.
  6. Remove from the fridge and whip well using a stand or hand mixer. For best results, start on low and slowly increase speed until the body butter becomes light and fluffy.
