Nourish & Calm Body Butter


You may not realize it, but making many of your own body products is really, really, simple. Our skin is our largest organ and it’s important to really know what it is absorbing day in and day out. Many of the ingredients in store purchased body products are hormone disruptors and are extremely toxic. If you’re like the average person, years and years of using  products like that build up in your system and begin to cause issues with sensitivity, hormone imbalance, and allergies. You can make your own body products with minimal ingredients that are easy to find, wonderful smelling, healthy…and it’s a lot of fun!







Nourish & Calm Body Butter

*This recipe makes about 8 cups and will fill four 16 oz mason jars.

2 Cups of Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil (Costco)

2 Cups of Organic Shea Butter (Amazon)

1 Cup of Organic Cocoa Butter (Amazon)

2 Tablespoons of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Trader Joe’s)

30 Drops of Ylang Ylang

6 Drops of Lavender

6 Drops of Frankincense

6 Drops of Stress Away

10 Drops of Joy

In a medium saucepan melt the coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter on medium low. Pour into a bowl and place somewhere cool until it is almost completely solidified. This will take a couple of hours. Don’t let it solidify too much though so keep checking!

Scrape the oils into a stand mixer with a whisk attachment and whip until smooth. Add the olive oil one Tablespoon at a time until fully incorporated. Add the essential oil drops and whip until light and fluffy. 

Spoon into decorated jars.

    • Yes, I have to stay away from the dogs when I first put the lotion on. They love it! Essential oils when used in small amounts are harmless to animals. In fact, I was able to heal a large growth on Romeo’s lower leg with lavender & frankincense. It was miraculous!
