I love DIY! I really love making beauty products at home. Some are not as fun as others but after many a long search for a DIY body butter that didn’t require spending a ton of money or breaking out industrial sized kitchen equipment I think I may have found the right one! I found this recipe on shewearsmanyhats.com. In this heat it is difficult to think about anything else but if you are like me and love to get yourself a nice tan it is important to keep moisturized. You can personalize this recipe to add difference scents or even herbs, fruits or vegetables. You can really fine tune it to your very own skin. I cannot wait to make this. I am waiting on some essential oils to come in and this weekend I am going to get right on this!
1½ cups of coconut oil, measured as solid
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons zest of grapefruit or other citrus or essential oil
1. Mix all together until combined and smooth.
2. Transfer to a clean container with a cover.
**It is very hot out currently so make sure to keep it in a warm dry place so the butter doesn’t melt. You don’t want to be a slippery greasy mess.
**The mixture can become hard after a few days so make sure to mix it up before using it.
