- 2.5 oz of our Shea Butter
- 1 oz coconut oil
- .70 oz jojoba oil
- .70 oz almond oil
- 20 drops peppermint essential oil
- 20 drops vanilla essential oil (you will only find “Vanilla in Jojoba,” 100% pure vanilla essential oil is not available)
Using a double boiler, gently melt the shea butter and coconut oil stirring frequently.
When almost completely melted, add the jojoba and argan oil, stir well and take off of the heat.
Set it aside for about 2 hours or until your oils are at 90 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
Now add the peppermint and vanilla oils. Adding essential oils to a hot mixture will “kill” the essence and you ill wonder why you have to add so much to your recipes.
Let the oils sit outside of the fridge for another two hours, or until you can see a trace in the butters when you stir. It’s now time to whip it with an electric mixer, do it for 2-3 minutes.
Put it in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
Take it out of the fridge and let it sit out for about 2 hours.
Now whip one more time – this is the moment of truth, it’s when your body butter is amazingly whipped and will STAY whipped and will not turn hard again.
Now you have a wonderful Candy Cane Body Butter anyone would enjoy!
