Now let’s talk about the homemade body butter ingredients:
The base for this DIY recipe will be shea butter which is a thick butter known for its rich and moisturizing properties.
Argon Oil & Jojoba Oil
These two carrier oils will help in softening the shea butter, making the body butter easier to apply to skin. Depending on your choice you can use either of them or even both of them, all we need is two spoons of your desired carrier oil.
Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint essential oil has a minty fresh aroma that is penetrating and cooling. This natural essential oil will help in reducing inflammation and promote circulation. Peppermint’s scent is not only refreshing, but at same time very energizing. You can get this oil from essential oil wholesalers at affordable rates.
Vanilla Absolute Oil
