DIY! Coconut Oil Body Butter

Coconut oil contains healthy fats that are great for your skin

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Body butter is one of the best DIY skin care remedies, as it is creamy and soothing to your skin. This coconut oil-based one will make your skin absolutely glowing. Coconut oil contains healthy fats that are great for your skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help with puffiness.

This moisturizing cream has only 2 ingredients and is appropriate for anywhere on the body. The addition of lime makes this smell amazing, and adds some vitamin C and antioxidants that are great for clearing the skin.

Ingredients:

½ cup Coconut oil

15 drops of lime oil (or your favourite essential oil; you can try fresh lime juice too)

Directions:

Whisk the solid coconut oil in your mix-master, electric whisk or stick blender.

When it starts to soften add the lime or essential oil drops and keep mixing until nicely whipped.

Label it and take note of the best by date on the coconut oil bottle.

It’s best not to apply things with citrus oils to the skin before going out into the sun, as they can make the skin more photo-sensitive.

Store the oil in a cool, dark place.
