Soooo, I am going to say that I myself am not much of a DIY type of girl.  I have these great intentions to make my own body butters, face creams, bath salts, you name it.  I even have gone so far as to purchase all of the ingredients and yet I never get around to it.   THANKFULLY, Young living makes all of these wonderful products, and if you are a person like me, then you can skip right over this page and not think another thing of it.  You can just purchase your products already DONE.  HOWEVER,  I feel as though I am not the norm with those of us that use oils.  There are so many people that make all of these amazing DIY recipes.  Many of which, I have even tried myself.  So if you are one of those people that LOVE to Do-It-Yourself, continue on reading.  Here are some of my favorites that I have tried.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic coconut oil
  • 1 cup organic solid cocoa butter (do not use lotion)
  • 15 drops of your favorite topical/aromatic essential oil (we love Joy, Orange, and Frankincense essential oils)­

Directions:

  • Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
  • Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
  • Stir in essential oils.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
  • Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
    Massage into dry skin!
