“DIY Coconut Body Whip”

A silky, light-weight moisturizer perfect for everyday use for a delightful mind-body experience. Shea Butter is available at most natural foods stores. We like Everyday Shea by Alaffia.

Ingredients
3/4 cup Organic Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp Shea Butter
35 drops Orange Essential Oil
30 drops Pine Essential Oil
15 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
15 drops Lemon Essential Oil

Directions
1. In a double boiler over low heat, gently warm the coconut oil and shea
butter. Be careful not to melt the oil and butter – heat just enough to
blend easily. Once incorporated, transfer the oil and butter mixture to a
bowl.

2. Use an electric mixer on low speed to blend the coconut oil and shea
butter until well mixed, 1-2 minutes.

3. Increase the speed to medium for several minutes, then high for several
more minutes until the mixture has a lovely, whipped consistency. Remember
to keep scraping the ingredients down the sides of the bowl, so they get
fully incorporated.

4. Add the essential oils and blend to incorporate. The whole mixing process
should take 8 to 10 minutes.

Yields 8oz. Transfer to a container like a wide-mouth canning jar for easy
scooping. Unlike coconut oil that has not been whipped, this product is easy
to scoop even at cooler temperatures.

    Even if you do melt it, no stress – just put it in the fridge until it thickens up a little and then whip it. I love doing this with organic cocoa butter, but the smell makes me hungry for chocolate!
