Vanilla & Fig Non-Greasy Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

3 oz. refined shea butter
.25 oz. refined/deodorized cocoa butter
.2 oz. hemp seed oil
.1 oz. lanolin
.1 oz. Cyclomethicone
.05 oz. arrowroot powder
.1 oz. Vanilla Fig fragrance oil
1 ml vitamin E oil
1/8th teaspoon cosmetic gold mica powder or similar, optional for color

Instructions:

You’ll begin by using a digital kitchen scale to weigh out the shea and cocoa butters. Combine in a large glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at reduced power until fully melted.

Weigh out the arrowroot powder and stir into the butters until it has dissolved.

Now weigh out the lanolin and stir into the melted butters until it has liquified.

Next weigh out and stir in the hemp seed oil, Cyclomethicone and fragrance oil. Follow with the vitamin E oil using a graduated plastic pipette to measure out the vitamin E. Finally, use a measuring spoon to measure out the mica if desired and stir in. Mix well.

This non-greasy body butter recipe will take a while to harden up. You can speed this up by placing it in the fridge. Just when it starts to thicken but is still pourable remix the body butter to evenly distribute the mica as it can settle to the bottom. You can use a stick blender if needed. Then pour into a 4 oz. container of your choice. I used a small 4 oz. Ball canning jar. You can easily find these at local grocery stores as well as big box stores.

To use simply scoop out a small amount and rub onto skin as desired. Keep in mind that less is more. A little goes a long way and using too much will take the product longer to absorb.
