I want to quickly share with you how to make your own personal body cream.
Required Ingredients for making your own body cream:
1 cup of organic shea butter
2 tbs of essential oils
2 ounces of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs of vegetable glycerin
1 cup of coconut oil
2 tbs of vitamin E
How to Prepare your own body cream:
Take 1 cup of your organic shea butter and put it in a blender. If you want to do this regularly you might consider buying a special blender for this purpose, but there is absolutely nothing wrong in using your already owned blender.
Add your coconut oil to the blended. Use the same cup you need in measuring the Shea butter to measure the coconut oil. The coconut oil should be 1 cup to avoid adding excess oil to the lotion.
Add your vegetable glycerin and vitamin E to the mixture. Your vegetable glycerin should be 2 tablespoons, while your vitamin E should also be 2 tablespoons.
Add your olive oil to the mixture. You can add any amount of olive oil depending on how you want it, for me, I add 2 ounces but you can put more. you can also substitute olive oil with avocado oil, it’s also good.
Turn on your blender and blend the mixture. Occasionally stop your blender to check if it is smooth and to also check if it’s okay. Blend it until you feel the thickness is okay. Normally, it should take around 1 – 2 minutes depending on the thickness of your cream.
Now, transfer your lotion from the blender to a container, make sure the container you are transferring it to is an airtight container. You can use a plastic bottle or a glass container, they work superb.
Make use of your body cream or lotion within 18 months or 1½years for better results.
Your body cream or lotion is now ready, you can keep it for personal use or begin to produce more and sell.
