Perfect Winter-Time DIY Body Butter recipe!!!!

     This body butter is so easy to make but I had to go to two different stores, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, to get the two ingredients that this body butter contains: Coconut oil and Shea Butter - That's it!!!! Here's how I make it:

  1. Scoop the Shea Butter into a pot on the stove over low heat - stir until completely melted. (Remember: Coconut Oil and Shea Butter have super low heating points so you only need minimal heat to get the job done.)
  2. Once the Shea Butter has melted, scoop the coconut oil into the pot with the melted Shea butter and continue to stir until that's completely melted. *You can put the coconut oil in the microwave to help soften it if it's a little tough to get out.
  3. Once everything has melted and blended together, remove from stovetop and start filling the Coconut Oil jar back up, along with any other jars, with the new blend and set inside the refrigerator with the tops off so it hardens faster.
  4. Once it's a solid again, you're ready to use it! 
Trader Joe's Coconut Oil - It's
typically white, but in this pic it's filled with
the liquid mixture
In Whole Foods, you scoop the amount of Shea Butter
into this little container and they weigh it and
price it. Just scoop as much as you want
to use.. I probably bought 3/4 cup of Shea Butter for this body butter.

***I chose Trader Joe's Coconut Oil over all of the other brands because TJ's has the distinct coconut smell and all others seem to be odorless and although they work the exact same, I prefer the beachy/coconut smell. Also, the Shea Butter has it's own smell but once it's mixed and melted with the coconut oil, all you can smell is the coconut... delicious!!!
