What you will need:

From Nature with Love offers a wide array of natural ingredients at great prices, awesome customer service and best of all great quality!

  • 5oz. Shea Butter (any type will work), mango butter or mochacchino butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Lightweight carrier oil any oil will work I used Sachi Inchi Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Jojoba Oil (or any other nourishing oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vitamin E
  • 1 Teaspoon Arrows Root Starch (or Corn Starch)
  • E.O or Skin Friendly Fragrance Oil

Equipment:

  • Heat safe container
  • Electric Mixer
  • Spatula
  • Air Tight Glass Jar
  • Pot of water (or double broiler)
  • Measuring Spoons

Directions:

  • Heat pot of water
  • Measure out 5 oz of shea butter into heat safe container.  Place into double broiler or pot of hot water. Melt completely
  • Add in Liquid oils (Carrier oil and Nourishing Oil)
  • Stir Place container into freezer for 10-20 minutes until solid ring develops.  This is the oils cooling down.
  • Remove from freezer and blend with one blending blade for no longer than 5 minutes until the oils are opaque.  If it takes longer than 5 minutes the oil wasn’t cool enough and will have to go back to the freezer for a few minutes.
  • After getting the oils to the opaque color add in the glycerin and mix again.  Add small amounts at a time of arrowroot and blend.  The starch will help to incorporate the glycerin with the oils and also help the skin to absorb the body butter.  Vitamin E is added and mixed in as well.  These keeps it from going rancid and prolongs the shelf life for up to 6 months.  Once all ingredient are added and mixed return container to the freezer for about 5\10 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and whip on high for 2 minutes.
  • For extra fluffy butter repeat freezer and whip steps.
  • Optional to add oils E.O use about 6-10 drops Fragrance oils use a tablespoon (or to desire fragrance). Whip scents into your butter.
  • Spatula out the butter and place it into the air tight glass jar.
