Herbal body ointment recipe

  • 25 g of cocoa butter 
  • 35 g of sweet almond oil 
  • 7 g honey or 1 teaspoon
  • 10 drops chamomile essential oil (optional)
  • Fuê and spatula

How You Can Prepare Your Body Butter

1- First, measure the shea butter and cocoa butter, then, in a small pan, place in a bain-marie to melt.

2- Soon after, when the butter has completely melted, take the pan with a tong and remove it from the heat of the fire, then pour the sweet almond oil and the honey, mix gently with the fuê. If you notice the oils solidifying, place the pot back in the water until it is completely melted again.

3- Then wipe any moisture from the pan and place it in the freezer for five minutes.

4- After five minutes, remove the pan from the freezer, add the essential oil, and mix well. Place the pan back in the freezer for another five minutes.

4- Soon after, 10 minutes in the freezer should have cooled the mixture to a consistency where there is a thin, solid layer on the surface. That way, underneath that layer, it should still be a little runny. 

5- Then blend everything one last time and you will have a wonderfully scented and creamy honey body butter that is easy to pour into a container. Work quickly, that is because it will get solid quickly

6- The final consistency is similar to a normal milk butter, which you took out of the fridge and softened a little. It's firm but easy to pick up.
