This rich DIY body butter smells like a decadent mint chocolate treat! Cocoa butter is a natural moisturizer that’s safe for all skin types, and peppermint oil is naturally uplifting, and invigorating.
Here’s how to make it:
Warm cocoa butter in a double boiler on the stove until softened. When softened remove from heat, add jojoba oil, and let cool in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Remove from freezer, add vanilla oil and peppermint oil, and whip on high using a hand mixer or standing mixer for 5-10 minutes (or until light and fluffy).
Store in a sealable container.
