Winter Body Butter

Clove Body Butter

I may be alone in this feeling, but I’ll share it anyway….

I really like winter.  While most people are counting down the days until spring, I enjoy the quiet and slower-paced months of January and February.  I feel that Mother Nature gives me permission this time of year to slow down, and enjoy things like warming soups, candles, and staying inside to study.

I do look forward to the longer days of spring and summer, but I really do appreciate winter for being, well, winter.

With that said, I was freezing a couple of weeks ago when the wind picked up and the temperatures dipped into the single digits!  I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try treat my skin and try out this body butter recipe I found on Rawmazing

This website provides detailed instructions for making body butter.  Below are some of the photos I took through the process.


Raw Shea Butter ordered from Amazon


Melting shea butter with coconut oil


Shea butter, coconut oil, and almond oil after it was sitting outside (19 degrees!) to cool off for 30 minutes.


Whipped ingredients!


Final product ready to go into a jar.

I’ve never made any type of lotion or butter before and I can promise that this recipe is super easy…just 3 ingredients.  I chose clove bud for my essential oil since the bottle had “comforting” written on it.  Everyone wants to feel comforted, especially when it’s cold outside, right?

The recipe makes a large batch so I was able to share with friends.  I use it every day and Kyle has even been using it on his hands.

I hope you get the chance to try it out for yourself and pamper your winter skin.
