This simple and natural recipe promises to rejuvenate and moisturize your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and vibrant. Let’s embark on a journey to pamper your senses and nourish your skin!

Ingredients Needed

  • Cocoa butter
  • Beeswax
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Papaya fragrance oil
  • Mica color powder, orange color
  • Liquid vitamin E

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products. Also, where an essential oil is included in my recipes, I utilize either of two types of essential oils: pure, if added in drops, or diluted, if mixed in grams.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to measure quantities
  • Bowl
  • Teaspoon
  • Wooden popsicle stick
  • Small container to store your DIY Scented Body Butter

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 Scented Body Butter

1- Start by putting 25 grams (0.88 oz) of cocoa butter in a bowl.

4- Heat and melt the contents of the bowl in a bain-marie (hot water bath). A bain-marie is done by placing the bowl containing the butter, beeswax, and oil in a larger pot of hot steaming water. This will gradually melt the contents. Avoid boiling.
