Whipped Coco Lemon Body Butter

Ok, so maybe you can't quite manage a couple of weeks on a Caribbean Beach, so here's a taste of the Tropics at Home :0)

Base Recipe

75% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (mmmm with the natural coconut aroma retained)
20% Grapeseed Oil
5% Glycerine
then add...
2% Lemon Essential Oil

Place your ingredients in a heatproof dish, heat and melt over a pan of simmering water (bring it to the boil first and then reduce the temperature) for 15 to 20 mins.

Remove from the stove and pour into a bowl, pop in the freezer until it turns semi solid and then take it out and whisk until you achieve a light whipped cream effect. Add a little more Grapeseed Oil if necesary. Once whipped, add 2% of your Lemon Essential Oil.

The Coconut and Grapeseed Oils are both light, easily absorbed, contain Vitamins, Antioxidants and numerous other properties. Lemon Essential Oil is useful for: detoxification, toning the skin, stimulates the immune system, coughs, colds, acid digestive complaints, cellulite, depression, exhaustion, nervous tension and varicose veins.
