Jojoba butter body balm Recipe

Submitted By:

Sampurna of Cleveland, OH

Summary:

Fragrant, rich and nourishing body balm made with jojoba butter, shea butter, sweet almond, avocado and rosehip seed oils.

Ingredients:

2 oz Jojoba esthers (MP56 for harder balm, MP44 for a softer/creamier texture)
1 oz Shea butter
2 oz Sweet Almond oil
1/2 oz Avocado Oil
1/2 oz Rosehip seed oil
8 drops of Rose ess. or fragrance oil (optional)
12 drops of Neroli ess. oil or fragrance oil (optional)

Instructions:

Melt the jojoba and shea butters over low heat in a double boiler. Alternately, you can melt them in microwave in a glass bowl warming 20-30 seconds at a time, and stirring occasionally until the butter/waxes are melted.
Remove from the heat, and add the fixed oils stirring to mix well while the product is still hot. Allow it to cool a little (warm to touch) then add the essential & fragrant oils and stir to blend well. You can use any ess. or fragrant oil you like to get the scent you want.
Pour in a glass jar and set aside for 24 hrs to allow the product to cool and harden. This will yield a thick balm that will melt on your skin. To use: scoop a little balm with your finger and rub between palms to warm, then rub into skin.

Customer Testimonial

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
