Lavender body butter

Here's a recipe for a large batch of lavender body butter:



  1. Start by ensuring all your equipment, including mixing bowls, beaters, and containers, are clean and sterilized.

  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the mango butter, shea butter, and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until they are fully melted and well combined. Alternatively, you can use a double boiler for this step.

  3. Once the butters and oils are melted, let them cool to room temperature. You can speed up the process by placing the bowl in the refrigerator for a short time, but don't let it solidify.

  4. In a separate bowl, combine the sweet almond oil and jojoba oil.

  5. Slowly pour the oil mixture into the melted butters and stir gently.

  6. Add the lavender essential oil and vitamin E oil to the mixture, and stir well. Adjust the amount of lavender oil to achieve your desired scent strength. You can also add a small amount of purple mica powder at this point if you want to add color.

  7. Let the mixture cool in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes or until it starts to thicken but is still partially liquid.

  8. Once the mixture has thickened, use an electric mixer or stand mixer with a whisk attachment to whip the body butter until it reaches a creamy, fluffy consistency. This may take 5-10 minutes.

  9. Carefully fill your 8oz containers with the whipped lavender body butter. Make sure to pack it in tightly to remove air bubbles.

  10. Seal the containers with lids and label them with the date and product information.

 Keep in mind that it's essential to maintain proper hygiene during the preparation process and to use clean, sterilized containers to ensure the body butter's longevity and safety.
