    Abby Girl's Note:

    Easy recipe to make up. All the carrier oils and butters can be interchangeable. Detailed information on how to make body butters. This butter can be put any where on the skin that needs nourishment. It is a little heavy to put on the face in the summertime, but I have used it in the wintertime when I need more moisture. Put it on your feet and put plastic bags over your feet and let the lotion be absorbed into your feet. Excellent for lips and hands.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    gm

    Units: US | Metric

    • 11 g beeswax
    • 11 g cocoa butter
    • 11 g mango butter
    • 11 g almond oil (jojoba, avocado, olive)
    • 6 g shea butter
    • 2 g vitamin E

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Before starting, make sure your work station is as clean as possible. Have clean utensils and pots -- the tubes you are putting your product in have been cleaned. You want to keep your finished product to stay as sterile as possible. Carrier and exotic oils have a shelf life -- smell them to make sure they are still fresh.
    2. 2
      Combine all the ingredients and heat until just melted, roughly 3 - 4 minutes. Do not let the mixture come to a boil. Pour into 2 deodoant containers. (put whatever butter you have left in a clean container).
    3. 3
      If you are going to add essential oils, let the oils cool down somewhat. Essential oils are heat sensitive, so add them when the lotion is just warm to the touch. If you are wanting something with healing properties and are not sure what to use, contact me and I will be glad to help.
    4. 4
      Let stand, undisturbed until the butters and oils solidify. When the lotion has solidified, there will be a "well" in the middle of the tube. Take a knife and smooth the edges down for a nicer look.
    5. 5
      This recipe could be cut into half. Calculate how much product your container can handle, then roughly estimate how much oils you are going to to fill your container, keeping in mind the beeswax/oil ratio. The beeswax is what basically is holding the butter together, but you also want the oils for their healing benefits.
    6. 6
      Vitamin E has it's own healing properties, but in this case, it is used as a preservative, so do include this. With any home products, there is a shelf life of roughly 2 years. I date my sticks -- but I have usually used it up by then!
    7. 7
      Caution: These butters do not have the heavy preservatives and fixatives that the commercial products have. With any home product that is "applied" to the skin, keep in mind about how clean your skin is and who is going to use it. Beware that if you pass your lotion around you could possible contaminate your stick. The cleaner the enviroment it is going to be used in the longer the shelf life it is going to have. If you are going to share your lotion, use a knife to "skim" some lotion off. Just some "food for thought"!
