DIY Lemon Lime Body Butter

I really love the Rocky Mountain Soap Company, and recently tried their lemon lime scented products - SO GOOD. Deciding to make my own creation, the creamy texture of coconut oil and shea butter with a zesty citrusy scent, make this easy DIY body butter irresistible. What You’ll Need:
  • ¼ cup cocoa butter
  • 5 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. jojoba oil
  • 2 tsp. vitamin E oil
  • 5-10 drops lemon essential oil
  • 5-10 drops lime essential oil
  • Medium saucepan
  • Clean airtight container

  1. Melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter together in a saucepan over low heat just until warm, be careful not to overheat.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in the Vitamin E oil, jojoba oil, and essential oils.
  3. Let cool for a few hours at room temperature, or in the fridge to speed up the process. It should harden to be thick and creamy. Transfer to a clean container.
Feel free to swap shea butter for cocoa butter or swap in avocado or almond oil for jojoba oil, or just make it 5 ½ tablespoons of coconut oil. The recipe is very versatile, so don’t worry if you don’t have all of the ingredients, just make do with what you have. You also might need to fluff it if left at room temperature for too long, as coconut oil can soften quite easily.   Featured Image: http://www.mixorganics.com/
