You’ve probably noticed that I’m into essential oils lately! And there’s SO
MUCH you can do with these oils! I mean, seriously, the possibilities are endless! My sewing machine has been packed away for a few months (I’m mad at it haha) and it’s been way too nice outside to feel like crocheting. So, what’s a crafty girl to do… craft with my new passion, of course! “Gentle Baby™ is a soft, fragrant combination of essential oils designed specifically for mothers and babies. It helps calm emotions during pregnancy and is useful for quieting troubled little ones. It is also soothing to tender skin. Many of the essential oils in this blend are used in elite cosmetics to enhance a youthful appearance.” From http://www.youngliving.com. It’s also been out of stock, for like ever! So, when it came back in stock I HAD to get my hands on some! I’ve been seeing all these neat whipped body butters and creams so I knew just the thing to make with this! This is so simple and soooo heavenly! Here’s how I did it!
-small jar with lid (glass is best)
-Gentle Baby oil
-organic coconut oil
-bowl to mix in
Instructions: put a few scoops of coconut oil into your mixing bowl. My glass jar was reused from some foundation so it didn’t take much coconut oil at all! Mix with hand mixer until it’s creamy. This usually takes about 3 minutes or so. Add 5 drops of Gentle Baby and mix for a few more seconds to incorporate. Poor into your glass jar and you’re done! It will take about 2 days for the coconut oil to set again and when it does it will be light and fluffy just like a body butter! Enjoy!
