What Natural Oils to Use?

Some of the best oils you can put on your skin include coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter, avocado oil, vitamin E oil, jojoba oil, and almond oil. The combination of these oils does wonders to the skin, especially after a warm shower. They keep your skin soft, supple, smooth, and they stimulate the regeneration of cells, which erases various imperfections, including stretch marks. These oils combined together have amazing deep penetrating properties that affect the skin extremely effectively. They moisturize and hydrate deeply, nourish, and keep your skin protected and elastic. We suggest purchasing these butters and oils from a trusted place that supports the local communities that provide them with the product.

  • coconut oil – moisturizes and nourishes, provides a protective barrier to the skin
  • shea butter – deeply moisturizes and softens, rich in vitamins and fatty acids, soothes inflamed skin, great for dry skin and eczema

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. First, melt shea butter and mango butter in a water bath.
  2. Heat the heat on a low flame to avoid damaging the qualities of the oils.
  3. Stir until melted and remove from the heat immediately.
  4. In two other separate vessels, melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter again in a water bath, stirring. They will need even less time to melt.
  5. Remove the oils from the heat and let them cool slightly. Then mix them.
  6. Add the avocado oil, jojoba oil, almond oil and vitamin E oil to them.
  7. Stir all the ingredients very well until they are completely mixed.
  8. Transfer the mixture to a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Let cool completely and firm up.
  9. After that, use a kitchen mixer or a handheld mixer to beat the mixture until it fluffs up. You want a whipped cream texture.
  10. Finally, place the body butter into a piping bag and transfer it to a container of your choice. Keep it in the fridge!
