Freshly made: My must-have skin care butter

It’s been more than a month since I’ve prepared this delicious butter for my skin. I didn’t know how was going to smell, but at the end, I was very satisfied with the result. I created a smooth and delicious milky chocolate smelling butter that you can apply on face or body. The recipe is very very easy, because I wanted a simple nourishing balm for dry skin.

You need:

5 teaspoons of organic virgin coconut oil
3 teaspoons of shea butter
5 drops of organic vanilla essence

This is the recipe for a small jar of 50g, but you can increase the amount of ingredients, if you want to make a bigger quantity. Melt together the shea butter and coconut oil with a double boiler method (bain Marie) until you get a liquid consistency. Then add the vanilla essence and stir well. Put the liquid into a clean jar and leave aside until cold.

You can use it instead of your lip balm, as a body butter and even on your face, especially if dry skin.

Green make-up tip: I use it even on top of cheekbones as a highlighter for a sheer and dewy look.

Did you know? 

Health benefits of  vanilla essential oil can be attributed to its properties like: anti oxidant, aphrodisiac, anti carcinogenic, febrifuge (reduces fever by fighting infections), antidepressant, sedative and relaxing. But beware to choose real vanilla strokes in your kitchen or an organic vanilla essential oil.
