2. Remove from heat and set to cool for 10 minutes then add your essential oils.
3. Place mixture in the refrigerator until it hardens into a “balm.”
4. To make the body butter, simply whisk the balm for 3-5 minutes until it has a “frosting-like” consistency.

  1. Guys do not put it in the microwave to melt it, use a double boiler or put the bowl in some warm water. The direct heat from the microwave can really ruin the nutrients of your oils and butter.

  2. Thank you so much! I have very sensitive skin and have a hard time finding something that won't hurt to apply, especially during allergies when I have such dry skin on my upper lip and that's my most sensitive area.

  3. I am never quite sure what the hype about Shea butter is. I just don't like it and so don't use it. There are soooo many other better butters to use, and especially for the face.  It seems to me that if one say's  "gotta use something" then it spreads like wildfire.  All of these videos, and gals are the same, and have the same recipe they are sharing.    Decent basic creams, but nothing special, AT ALL. Ladies! do NOT attack me for this opinion in defense of this ladies video. She DOES NOT need anyone to defend her, she is an adult.

  4. laveder type called Lavendula Augustifolia is toxic tp babies / Kids unfer 7yrs, breast feeding and pregnant women, the elderly & people with Sensitice skin. Also people should let it Sing in to their skin as it can burn.

  5. The Best Oils for Eczema should come from plants that has not been treated with pesticides and those oils are Lavender, Peppermint, Melaleuca (tea tree oil), and Melrose. Some have used Bergamot, Helichrysum, Marjoram, and Myrrh with great results also. Young Living EO's are 100% pure, pesticide free and guarantees the oils from Seed to Seal.  If I can help anyone, you can text or call me at (828)962-6608.
