Who doesn't love soft, moisturized, and healthy skin? The butters and oils used in this recipe are the perfect combination that will leave your skin moisturized for days after applying. Customize your whipped body butter with any essential oil of your choice.
Note: Store mixture in a glass jar and keep in a cool place. If needed, re-fluff the body butter by whipping it back up to the desired consistency with a hand mixture.
*Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity, so we don’t recommend using them if you plan on being in direct sunlight after topical application. The personal care products that doTERRA produces, such as the doTERRA Salon Essentials®, lotions, etc., are a little different. The shampoo and cleansers are wash-off products, so there is no concern for photosensitivity there. The products that stay on, such as the lip balm and lotion, use citrus oils in small, appropriate amounts that will not cause any phototoxic harm. Because we work closely with experts on formulations, we are able to provide a safe product. Essential oils at full strength on their own are very potent, which is why they carry the photosensitivity warning.
