Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler.
  • Mix in olive oil.
  • Add arrowroot starch if using
  • Place bowl in the freezer to set. You want the body butter to cool as quickly as possible to avoid it going grainy later on. Twenty minutes should suffice. Cover the bowl to avoid any condensation dripping in. 
  • After twenty minutes check that your body butter is semi solid. Poke it with your finger, it should easily make a dent. If it does remove the bowl from the freezer, if not leave it to harden a bit more.
  •  Beat mixture with electric beaters. 
  • The butter will look like butter cream frosting.
  • Transfer the butter to a glass or metal container with a tight fitting lid
