• Citrus and Manuka After Bath Body Balm

    This whipped body balm is delicious, easy and can be made with any of your favourite citrus oils but remember it is a sun down treat. We all know citrus oils can cause photo-sensitivity so enjoy it when the sun is low.

    • 1/2 cup refined shea butter
    • 1/4 cup Unfractionated coconut oil
    • 1/4 cup almond oil.
    • 8 drops of pure Lemon oil, 4 drop of Manuka oil.

    How to:
    Combine the oils and butters together in a medium glass bowl.
    1 Melt the oils and butters together using short 30 sec. bursts in the microwave, stirring in between.
    2 When the oils have melted, stir together and add essential oils
    3 Let the mixture cool until solidified. Place in the fridge to speed this up.
    4 Then beat with a mixer until the butter turns creamy and frothy. This could take 5-10 minutes.

    This recipe makes more than enough or a 60ml jar but this means that there is plenty to keep for yourself after making some treats for loved ones.
