How to make a luscious, creamy Shea Butter Body Balm to soothe dry winter skin, tame locks, heal cracked lips, and moisturize dry hands and feet. Made with simple all-natural ingredients, scented with your choice of essential oils.
The recipe makes one 2-ounce jar, so feel free to multiply.
Place shea butter, beeswax and coconut oil in a small pourable pot over very low heat, and stir until melted into a liquid. Remove from heat. Stir in jojoba oil and vitamin e oil.
Add your choice of essential oils (10-20 drops) to the 2-ounce jar and pour in the warm balm, stirring with a toothpick or chopstick. Let cool completely until opaque, about 1-2 hours.
Seal and label, giving it your own personal style.
Use on skin, hands, feet, lips or on dry hair.
I prefer adding the essential oil to the jars themselves so I can make different scents. If making more than one jar, but with all the same scent, feel free to add the essential oils to the pot after you remove it from heat.
