Fall is here which means cold, dry, harsh weather. Such weather can take a toll on both our hair and skin. A perfect remedy is whipping up one's own inexpensive body and hair butter to fight off any dryness and to seal in moisture. Convert the mix into a hair butter by simply increasing the amount of shea butter and cutting back on the coconut oil. Check out this tutorial below for an easy DIY butter that will leave your skin smooth, soft and radiant this fall.
You will need:
- 4oz of shea butter
- 2 Tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil
- 1 Tablespoon of vitamin E oil
- 3-5 drops of your favorite essential oils for scent (Peppermint and Lemongrass are used in the recipe)
Makes enough butter to fill an 8oz container.
Coconut oil melts above 76 degrees. Store your mix in a cool dry area.
