Simple Homemade Gifts: Shea Body Butter

Women need pampering after all of the hard work they do.  A great homemade body butter is just the trick to keep skin moisturized and luminous during the dry, winter months.  This shea body butter is made from raw shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil, and is a great gift for the girl or woman you know that deserves a little indulgence.

Whip up a couple of batches at a time to save money and time, and add in essential oils at the end to make it even more special.   Spoon into a clean mason jar and add a gift tag with the recipe, so the recipient knows how to make it when they run out!

Thank you so much for this recipe. My son has psoriasis, so I’m going to see if this helps!!

Maybe I am missing this somewhere, but I am not seeing the quantities of the shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil that you used. Is it equal parts of each? I am wanting to try this out, but just wanting to do it correctly. Thanks for posting! -Shelley.
