BeautyDIY Lavender Coconut Whipped Body Butter

LavenderCoconutBalm

Is your skin in need of some serious nourishment from the harsh winter weather? If yes, then give this DIY Lavender Coconut Whipped Body Butter a try, and you’ll feel like you’ve just gotten back from a weekend getaway at a luxury spa! We chose three of the best ingredients for natural skin care that will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed.

Lavender essential oil is not only relaxing but helps clear up acne and breakouts, while vitamin E oil helps add elasticity to give your skin a firmed, toned, and youthful glow. As we’ve mentioned in our DIY Coconut Coffee Scrub Cubes, coconut oil is kind of the holy grail of natural skin care, so of course we chose this as our main ingredient. Take a look at the easy steps below!

 

Ingredients:

-1 cup room temperature organic coconut oil (the coconut oil needs to be in a solid form to be turned into a whipped mixture, so refrigerate until firm if your coconut oil is very soft or liquid)

-10-15 drops lavender essential oil

-1 teaspoon vitamin E oil

-Standing or handheld electric mixer (standing is easier since this has to mix for so long)

-Rubber spatula

-Airtight glass jar

 

Directions:

1. Add the coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and vitamin E oil to mixing bowl

2. Mix on high speed with metal whisk for 7-8 minutes (scraping down the sides of the bowls with the rubber spatula every couple of minutes) or until a light, airy consistency is achieved and white peaks form.

3. Spoon the whipped coconut butter into an airtight glass jar, and apply anywhere on your body immediately after showering!

Tip: Your butter might feel a bit moist after whipping it, but it will set up to the correct consistency after a few hours.

Directions:

1. Using the X-Acto knife, carefully cut the top of the paper mache letter off. Remove the cardboard filling so the letter is empty.

2. In a well-ventilated area apply 2-3 coats of spray paint to the interior and exterior of the paper mache letter, letting each coat dry approximately one hour.

3. Once the paint is dry, remove the flowers from their stems and cut any remaining stem pieces so the bottom of the flowers are flat.

4. Apply a small glob of glue on the bottom of a flower and  place the flower in the paper mache letter. Press and hold the flower down for 15-20 seconds to let the hot glue cool slightly. Repeat this step until your letter is filled with flowers!

5. If you have empty spaces in your letter, you can fill them using individual petals, smaller flowers, or the leaves on the stems of the flowers. Just place them where you would like and apply small globs of hot glue to hold them in place.

6. Let all of your hot glue dry completely and voila!
