You know when you are so excited about something that you just can’t sit still!? I felt like this yesterday when I checked my butter supplies. Not much left… what could I do to use them up? There is no way I am wasting even one bit! And then… ding-dong! Why don’t I mix these butters up and whip myself a nice body cream!
I am thinking how to describe the feeling… I felt like I was creating an explosion of skin care goodness! The cream making process was so enjoyable and seeing the butters becoming soft and fluffy was a very happy moment!
You can whip shea butter on its own and it already makes a lovely body cream without any additions, but for someone as addictive as me, additives are very important! I want things to be as lush and luxurious as possible!
Whipped Shea & Avocado Body Butter
25g Shea butter
25g avocado butter
25ml Kukui nut oil
25ml Shea oil
In a bowl, warm the butters slightly just to soften them. Measure carefully and add the oils. With a hand held whisk, beat the butter until soft and fluffy.
You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Gorgeous!
I use it everyday, it’s quite fatty, because of avocado butter and Shea oil, but I like it this way. It’s a good way to prepare your skin for spring! Happy 1st of March! Spring is here!
