Varicose Vein Attacking Body Butter

  • Author: The Crunchy Moose

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Heat shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler on medium low. Stir until the oils melt, just a few minutes.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Add the jojoba oil, vitamin E liquid, and essential oils.
  4. Refrigerate for about an hour or 2 until chilled. You will have an off-white, almost solid (not quite completely solid).
  5. Mix with a hand mixer for about 10 minutes until you have soft white peaks (like whip cream).
  6. Store in a glass container. These jars are perfect.
  7. Massage this towards your heart to encourage blood flow (i.e. start at your ankles and work up your legs; start at your wrists and work up towards your shoulders).
  8. Your body butter is good for about 6 months. Store at room temperature. During hot weather, the body butter may slightly melt. You can store in the fridge if this happens (or if you just like a cold body butter).

Notes

  • Note: Just like with dry body brushing , I do not recommend using this body butter at night. These circulation boosting essential oils get your blood flow all worked up and is very stimulating! It can disrupt restful sleep.
