Body Butter

I think this week I'll get back to the bathroom cupboard revolution I mentioned a few weeks ago.  In my journey to revolutionize my cupboard this is one of my biggest surprises.  Body Butter,  who knew I couldn't live without it.  I used to use whatever lotion I had around,  usually heavily scented and full of alcohol so it would sting my poor little legs.  When I first made this recipe for body butter I was put off by the greasy-ness on my hands.  But, I realized  it's body butter,  it's not for your hands it's for your body.  It feels so nice after a shower.  I've become addicted and I just made my second batch.

Oh So Wonderful Body butter

3 Tbsp cocoa butter
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp beeswax

Put all ingredients in the jar you want your body butter to live in.

                                                                Sadly,  this is the only picture I have of this process.

Place in a pot of boiling water and wait for everything to melt.

Take your jar out of the boiling water and give it a good stir.

Put the jar in the refrigerator  for about an hour or until it has hardened.

There you go, there's nothing to it.
