Olive Massage Butter

by Allison B. Kontur

You will need:
6 oz Olive Butter
2 oz Shea Olein (Liquid Shea Butter)
2.5 ml (1/5 tsp) Lavender Sage Fragrance Oil

Phase 1: In a double boiler over low heat, heat olive butter & shea olein until liquified and remove from heat.

Phase 2: Transfer liquid oils to a glass mixing utensil and add fragrance.

Phase 3: Using a hand mixer with a whisk attachment (equipment you have reserved strictly for formulating and not food use), begin to whisk liquid until lightly whipped. This may take some time to achieve and you may find it helpful to pop the container into the fridge or freezer to speed up the process.

Phase 4: When thoroughly combined, package in an airtight container. To Use: Dispense a small portion of butter into the palm of your hands and rub together vigorouslyto warm the butter before massage application.

Other Uses: Hand & Nail Treatment, Foot Balm, Solid Bath Oil
