Servings: 1 jar
Wash your equipment well before beginning this process.
Start by melting the butters with the vitamin E oil over low heat using a double boiler or the double boiler method. Place a glass bowl, beaker or stainless steel bowl over a hot water bath. We often use a shallow pan filled with water as a hot water bath. Stir the mixture as your butters melt.
Once you have melted the butters, then add the fractionated coconut oil. Stir the mixture again.
Remove from the heat and allow the bowl or beaker to cool in the fridge for approximately 30-45 minutes, until the mixture is firm but not hard.
Then, using a hand mixer or immersion blender, whip the body butter for about 10 minutes until light and fluffy. Immersion blenders are said to be better for whipping body butters but we have been able to get that light fluffy texture using a hand mixer.
Place the bowl in the fridge again for 10 minutes and then whip your butters for another 5 minutes.
Next, add the essential oils and whip the mixture again. Make sure that your essentials oils have been fully blended into the body butter.
Transfer your body butter to a glass container with an air-tight lid. Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
