Beauty body but­ter

NZ Lifestyle Block - - Farmhouse Kitchen -

This is a re­ally use­ful recipe that works ev­ery time. I used sil­i­cone patty cases when I first started as the mix­ture hard­ens to the con­sis­tency of soap and you can pop them out like lol­lipops. But then I had to look for some­thing to store them in so now Ipour the mix­ture into small cos­metic pots and screw down the lids when the mix­ture so­lid­i­fies.

In­gre­di­ents

30g beeswax 55g co­conut oil 55g shea but­ter 55g sweet al­mond oil 5ml vi­ta­min E oil 30 drops lo­tus fra­grance oil

(or fra­grance oil of your choice)

METHOD

Melt the beeswax in a dou­ble boiler – 60°C will be hot enough, no hot­ter – then take the pot off the heat and add the co­conut oil, shea but­ter and sweet al­mond oil. Lastly, add the vi­ta­min E, mix well and pour into small pots.
