Homemade Dry Skin Balm Recipe


2 parts cocoa butter
1 part shea butter
1 part mango butter
2 parts virgin coconut oil
Essential or fragrance oil of choice


Melt the butters and oil in a double boiler. Remove from heat, and add the essential oil (at 1 – 2% of your recipe) or fragrance oil (at 1 – 3% of your recipe.) Pour into deodorant containers or jars. Cobalt blue glass jars will help keep light sensitive essential oils used in your recipe from being affected by light.
