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 felt like I was creating an explosion of skincare 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 like me, additives are very important! I want things to be as lush and luxurious as possible!
50g Shea butter
25g avocado butter
25ml kukui nut 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!
