I've made a lot of different types of lotions, but I have to say that body butters are my favorites to use. They take a few extra minutes to make because you have to whip them, but it's so worth it. They are light and fluffy, but they deliver a lot of moisture to your skin. I use this one on my hands almost every night, and it works great on my feet too.

Dry Skin Body Butter With Young Living Melrose Essential Oil
My skin is terribly dry in the winter. My cuticles get so dry that they crack and bleed. I constantly itch until I have scabs on my arms and legs. I need some serious moisture, and I needed something that would heal my skin while it protects it. That's why I decided to use make this dry skin body butter with Melrose from Young Living.
What You Need
- 1 cup organic coconut oil
- 1/4 cup carrier oil (I used almond oil, but jojoba oil would work great too)
- 10 drops Melrose essential oil
- Double boiler
- Wide mouth jar
- Melt coconut oil in a double boiler and add your oil.
- Place the melted oils in the fridge until they start to harden. This is very important because melted oils will not whip. I place the melted oils in my mixer bowl and put the whole thing in the fridge. Getting the bowl cold really seems to help.
- Add the essential oil.
- When the oils are semi-solid, whip them using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. I use my whisk attachment. Whip until it's light and creamy.
- Spoon in to a wide mouth jar.
|This whips up beautifully!|
