Preparation time: 20 min
80 g shea butter (you can also use cacao butter)
40 g coconut butter
25 g olive oil

glass jar with lid

Making this fluffy body cream is simple and quick. Home-made creams are 100% natural and filled with love. You just need to make sure that you use good quality, cold-pressed, and unrefined oils containing all positive substances.
First, prepare a water bath. In a small saucepan, heat a little bit of water and place a larger pot with all kinds of butter on top of it. These need to melt. In this case, these are shea and coconut butter (when in solid form). The water bath shouldn't be too hot. Heat the oils just enough to melt, otherwise, you can destroy all their substances. Pour the melted oils into a larger bowl and add olive and argan oil.
Place the bowl in a fridge until they harden just a bit (10-15 minutes) and become white but still soft to the touch.
Then mix the oil mixture with a hand mixer until you get a fluffy cream. If you like, you can add 2-3 drops of essential oil to the mixture before mixing.
Place the fluffy cream into a glass jar, close it well, and keep it at room temperature. In the summer months, when temperatures in the apartment rise, keep the cream in a cold place, otherwise it can melt. The cream will still be useful, only its consistency will be changed.
Apply the cream on moist skin so that the oils are absorbed into the body more quickly. Your skin will be nourished, smooth, and soft.
