Astar's Craft: Homemade Body Butter

Good Morning on TV ONE and TVNZ OnDemand.


How to make your own body butter….

 All you will need is –

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup cocoa butter
  • Essential oil of your choice (you will need about a cap fill)
  • Electric beater
  • Pot and mixing spoon
  • Pretty jars

Method –

  • Into a pot melt the coconut oil and cocoa butter.  When melted put into the fridge to cool and become soft – will take a couple of hours.
  • Place in an electric beater and beat until you have a whipped cream consistency (Will take about 10 minutes)
  • Label and store in pretty jars.

Note – cocoa butter creates a barrier between skin and the environment and retains moisture in the skin.  Great for all skin types and can prevent and improve stretch marks.
