Awhile ago you may have noticed me pinning homemade beauty/skin products on Pinterest. I did this after receiving a very sweet homemade holiday gift of coffee & coconut scrub as well as some lip balm (that really doubles as an all over moisturizer too!). DIY Natural Body Butter needed to happen.
After being gifted these lovely all-natural organic presents, I asked (begged) my friend to share her secrets with me – so after a little planning, we put together an anti-Super Bowl party = the ladies homemade skin product afternoon. There is something SO rewarding about making your own beauty/skin products because: (1) You know EXACTLY what you are rubbing on your precious skin, (2) you get the choose your own original scent, and (3) it is WAY cheaper than organic natural products available in the store.
Warning: This adorable little gold hot pant wearing pig has nothing to do with the DIY beauty day – other than being present.
First up… Body Butter
Actually first up was this.
Yes it is true – while we sweated (well not really) over making ourselves all natural, super healthy, earth momma, hippy, homemade body products we drank wine. Wine is mostly natural isn’t it?
Scoop, scrap and dig the cocoa butter into your double boiler (or into a regular pot on low heat in our case)
And add in your favourite essential oils – I decided to skip that step as I loved the au natural body butter scent! Place your bowl either outside or in the fridge to cool off.
