How to make
Gently melt the shea butter and coconut oil (unless you are using fractionated coconut liquid) using a double boiler, you do this by placing a heat safe bowl in a pan of hot water and heat using a low flame. Once melted, stir in avocado oil and vitamin E. Now place it in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes to harden just a bit. When the mixture has harden a bit get it out and whip it using a hand mixer for about 10minutes until you end up with a thick whipped cream-like consistency. Add the drops of essential oils, stir well and voilá It's ready. Scrape the mixture into clean jars or containers. Store in a clean dry place and avoid direct sunlight.
How to use
Apply as a body lotion after a bath or shower, you can use it as a night cream for extra moisture for dry skin, or as a homemade hand cream.
The mix of rosemary, cedarwood and ylang ylang gives the synergy effect of soothing, toning, refreshing and uplifting. This blend is very hydrating and specially designed for dry winter skin.
