It’s day light saving next week
That means it’s almost winter.
And our skin tends to get drier when it’s cold
Besides, why not?
It’s always a good time to indulge yourself.
So I think it’s a great time
to make a body butter
So, all you need is:
Coconut oil – available in every supermarket today
Olive oil or almond oil
Few drops of your favorite essential oil
Mix 2 parts coconut oil with 1 part Olive oil or sweet almond oil (almond oil has no smell so it is better if you don’t like the olive smell)
Better to heat the coconut oil a bit first, just put it in the hot water cupboard overnight or gently of the stove top, just until it’s a bit tender.
Add a few drops essential oil depends how strong do you want it, I think 10 drops are enough for 100gr)
Start mixing with a spoon and then
use an electric beater, like you make whipped cream.
5-7 minutes and you’re done
It might be a bit liquidy at the start of winter the thicken when we go deeper into it.
put in a jar and enjoy
Ylang – Ylang alone is also good
But if you want to for a congestion balm for the winter
To warm up your feet use some Cinnamon Leaf
So start experimenting and enjoy
