Ingredients

Preparation

Step 1


Using a double-boiler method, which is essentially a heat-proof bowl sat over a pan of simmering water melt all the oils and the butters. Essential oils will be added later.



Step 2


Cool down in the fridge until it starts to harden on top, usually takes an hour.



Step 3


While still soft, mix using a hand-held mixer for 8-10 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the essential oils and whip until fully blended.



Step 4


Store in an airtight jar and store in a cool place, too cold and it will go solid. Use often within 2 months. 


Shea Butter boosts skin moisture, it works as an emollient that softens and hydrates skin. Because it contains several types of fatty acids, including lineoleic, oleic, palmitic and stearic acids that improve the skin's natural barrier, shea butter also protects skin from damage from the environment like pollutants.

Cocao butter is a decent source of vitamin E, which benefits your body in many ways. Vitamin E supports vision, reproduction, and the health of your brain, skin, and blood. Cocoa butter contains a high amount of fatty acids, which make it well-suited as a primary ingredient in skin cream.

Almond Oil improves skin's overall appearance and luminosity, almond oil also contains some vitamin A, also known as retintol. “This can help even out skin tone, texture, and prevent wrinkles,” says Rabach, making it a more natural solution to a fresh, brightened complexion.

Coconut oil helps bolster your skin's protective barrier layer, trapping moisture inside and keeping skin supple and hydrated. Reduces inflammation. Coconut oil has anti-inflammatory properties, making it beneficial for irritated, chafed skin. Increases collagen production.

Frankincense oil is a natural astringent. This means that it's good for skin care as it can help heal skin imperfections and conditions like acne and wounds. Frankincense has been known for rejuvenating damaged skin as a healing oil. This is useful for reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
