-a 4-6 oz. container
-1 oz. of unscented, unrefined shea butter (I use AAA Brand)
-1 oz. of 100% pure, natural cocoa butter
-1 tbs. of unrefined coconut oil
-2 tbs. of unrefined olive oil
-2 tsp. of jamaican black castor oil (or unrefined castor oil)
-a few drops of pure vitamin E oil
-(optional) 10 drops of lavendar essential oil (or any essential oil of your choice), for scent
Melt down the butters until they can be easily stirred with a spoon, and scoop into your 6 oz. container. Then, pour in your oils, add your essential oil, and stir the mixture until all of the elements are evenly combined. Let the mixture sit until it is cool, smooth and creamy.
I use this mixture on my damp skin about once or twice per day, and it lasts me 4-6 weeks!
P.S. This body butter is great for preventing and reducing the appearance of stretch marks and wrinkles. Win, win, win!
