This recipe was adapted from Susan Powers body butter recipe found here
Ingredients 1/4 cup raw cacao butter 1/4 cup raw coconut oil 1 cup raw shea butter 1 vanilla bean, slit lengthwise a few drops vanilla essential oil a few drops rose essential oil 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
Directions Melt the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and shea butter in a bowl over a pot of boiling water (double boiler) with the vanilla bean until smooth and all liquid. Remove the bowl, and let the mixture cool for 45 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean, and add the essential oils, and almond oil. Whisk to combine. Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes, or until the mixture begins to become completely opaque and starts to solidify (you want the middle to still be a bit soft, but the outside will start to be solid, and the whole mixture should be pretty cold). Whip with a hand mixer until the mixture becomes like a frosting. Scoop into jars with lids and enjoy! It should keep for a couple months (since there are no preservatives).
