Citrus Fresh Body Butter

Sometimes it is a chore just to get out of bed. Add in thoughts of having to take care of other human beings (aka your family) and it’s enough to make a woman want to run away from home somedays. That’s okay, though, because it could be that all you need is a little pick-me-up to get you going. This citrus fresh body butter is exactly what you’ve been needing. With a refreshing citrus scent and skin smoothing essentials like shea butter, mango butter, and coconut oil, mornings will become your new favorite time of the day. Enjoy!

Pro Tip: For a more relaxing version try using lavender essential oil instead of citrus fresh. Or if you need a midday pick-me-up try using peppermint. In fact, play around with all of your essential oils until you find just the right body butter for you. Enjoy!

I made this and found it whipped up just great if it was cold enough. Chilled it, whipped it for a bit and repeated two more times and got a great texture. I’d definitely make this again and will try the cornstarch/arrowroot to see if that makes a difference.

great recipe I use one similar and everyone raves about it. I would use less oil and add a tablespoon cornstarch or arrowroot. Viola. Non greasy and a heavenly scent. Thanks for sharing.

This is the worst body butter recepe I have ever tried, you should take it off your website and be ashamed of yourself, what a disaster and a total waste of time and money. Not Happy!!!!!!!

Tried this recipe and it has WAY too much olive oil! The result was a super oily product that does not hold together well at all. If the other ingredients weren't so expensive for me to get I probably would have dumped it. So disappointing.

She should have added Arrowroot to it...it would have made it like a whip and less oily
