If you won’t be in the Baton Rouge area for the festivities, or even if you will, here is a yummy DIY recipe you can make at home. This decadent mixture will help keep your skin moisturized in the winter months. Enjoy!
Bronzing Mint Chocolate Whipped Body Butter
- ¼ cup organic shea butter
- ¼ cup organic cocoa butter
- ¼ cup organic virgin coconut oil
- ¼ cup jojoba oil
- 1 tbsp organic cocoa powder (Will diminish the oily finish and add a bronzing effect. For a White Chocolate version just leave it out.)
- 10-20 drops of Young Living Peppermint essential oil (or other Young Living essential oils of choice such as Lavender or Orange) Click Here to get started with essential oils.
- (optional) 1 teaspoon naturally derived Vitamin E (non GMO)
- Combine all ingredients, except the cocoa powder and essential oils, in a small pot or double boiler.
- Gently melt and stir over medium-low heat until the mixture is liquid.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder.
- Place the bowl in the fridge or freezer to help set the mixture more quickly.
- Once the mixture is partially set, add the peppermint essential oil or other essential oils of choice.
- Whip with a mixer until the body butter is fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. If mixture is it not whipping, chill for bit longer.
- Keep in an air tight jar out of direct sunlight.
- Enjoy for yourself or give as a gift!
- If mixture melts just chill and whip again. 😉
There are no preservatives in this recipe. However, the oils selected are naturally antimicrobial. I recommend high quality, cold-pressed oils for a longer shelf life (and better for you!). This mixture should last 3-6 months at room temperature and up to a year with the added Vitamin E.
