- Ewax (emulsifying wax)
- Corn flour
- Fractionated coconut oil
- Essential oils
- Vitamin E
- Scale to measure quantities
- Large bowl
- Electric mixer

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Beetroot Body Butter
1- Put 140 grams (4.93 oz) of shea butter in the bowl.
2- Add 5 grams (0.17 oz) of beeswax.
3- Add 10 grams (0.35 oz) of ewax.
4- Pour 40 grams (1.41 oz) of fractionated coconut oil in the bowl.
5- Now, we will melt the contents in a hot water bath (bain-marie). A hot water bath is done by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt whatever is inside the bowl without causing it to burn. As the contents of the bowl melt, make sure to mix every now and then.
Note: Ensure that the beeswax and ewax granules have melted fully.
6- Let the contents cool off a bit and then place the bowl with its contents in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes. We want the mix to harden, not fully, but rather about 80%.
7- Use an electric mixer to whip up the contents till they become creamy.
8- Add 1 gram (0.035 oz) of beetroot powder.
9- Add your preferred essential oil. You can add up to 8 grams (0.28 oz) of the essential oil.
10- With the glass mixing rod, mix manually to spread out the beetroot powder and essential oil, then use the electric mixer to achieve a thorough blending.
11- Add 5 grams (0.17 oz) of corn flour.
12- Squeeze the contents of a vitamin E capsule in the mix.
13- Use the electric mixer to finish up with a thorough and uniform blend of the ingredients.
14- Your DIY Beetroot Body Butter is now ready. Scoop it into a glass container for storage.
How to Use: DIY Beetroot Body Butter
Using DIY Beetroot Body Butter is a delightful and straightforward process. Follow these simple steps to make the most of your homemade creation:
- Cleanse: Begin by cleansing your skin thoroughly. Use a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt, oil, or impurities, ensuring a clean canvas for the body butter.
- Prepare: Take a small amount of the beetroot body butter from the container and place it in the palm of your hand. Allow it to soften slightly by gently rubbing your hands together.
- Apply: Massage the softened body butter onto your skin using gentle, circular motions. Start with a small amount and gradually add more if needed, ensuring an even application.
- Focus on Dry Areas: Pay extra attention to areas prone to dryness, such as elbows, knees, and heels. Massage the body butter into these areas, allowing the rich ingredients to deeply moisturize and nourish your skin.
- Absorption: Give your skin a few moments to absorb the body butter fully. It will leave a protective layer, sealing in moisture and leaving your skin feeling velvety smooth.
- Enjoy the Benefits: Once absorbed, revel in the benefits of your DIY beetroot body butter. It will leave your skin feeling hydrated, supple, and rejuvenated. Repeat the application as desired, especially after bathing or whenever your skin needs an extra boost of nourishment.
Remember, a little goes a long way with this concentrated body butter, so start with a small amount and adjust according to your skin’s needs.
Benefits: DIY Beetroot Body Butter
Using DIY Beetroot Body Butter offers a multitude of benefits for your skin. Let’s explore the wonderful advantages it brings:
- Deep Hydration: The combination of shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oil in beetroot body butter provides intense hydration to your skin. It helps to replenish moisture, leaving your skin soft, smooth, and deeply nourished.
- Nourishes and Revitalizes: Beetroot powder is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are known to promote healthy skin. When incorporated into body butter, it helps nourish and revitalize the skin, giving it a radiant and youthful appearance.
- Improves Skin Elasticity: Regular use of beetroot body butter can enhance skin elasticity, making it feel firmer and more supple. This can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promoting a more youthful complexion.
- Evens Out Skin Tone: Beetroot powder contains natural pigments that may help even out skin tone and reduce the appearance of blemishes or discoloration. Over time, it can contribute to a more balanced and radiant complexion.
- Soothes and Calms: The emollient properties of shea butter and the soothing effects of essential oils in the body butter can help calm irritated or inflamed skin. It is particularly beneficial for those with sensitive or dry skin conditions.
- Protects from Environmental Stressors: The combination of beeswax and vitamin E in beetroot body butter forms a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This barrier helps shield your skin from environmental stressors, such as pollution or harsh weather conditions.
- Luxurious Self-Care Experience: Beyond its practical benefits, using DIY beetroot body butter offers a luxurious and indulgent self-care experience. The rich, velvety texture and the delightful scent of the body butter make it a treat for your senses, promoting relaxation and overall well-being.
