Coconut Body Butter

When I jump out of the shower I put on lotion and top it with oil or body butter. Sometimes it's very dry here in San Diego with the Santa Anna winds. This helps tremendously.

 MAKES 4 OUNCES:
Ingredients:

  • 1/4  cup grated or chopped cocoa butter
  • 1     tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2     tablespoons light olive oil
  • 1     tablespoon avocado oil or sunflower oil or almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated beeswax
Directions:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and warm on the stove until they just begin to melt. Or heat ingredients in a microwave on high, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Remove mixture from heat and stir until well blended.
  3. Pour melted mixture into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. Massage a small amount into your skin to condition and moisturize.
