This past weekend was Mother’s Day, and along with a few other items, I gifted my mom and grandma with a rich, homemade body butter. I love giving homemade gifts and think they really make the recipient feel special. Follow these easy steps and you, too, can enjoy this simple, but luxurious body butter!

Ingredients:
1 Cup Mango Butter (cocoa or shea work too, but the mango butter has NO smell)
1/2 cup Coconut Oil (I used my Dr. Bronner’s Unrefined)
1/4 Cup + 1 TSP Sweet Almond Oil (Castor or Grapeseed work well, too)
Essential Oils of your choosing (Some personal faves: peppermint, lemon & lavender, grapefruit & sweet orange)
