Super Simple Whipped Shea Butter

Today’s project is another back-to-basics post—we’re making an all-natural Super Simple Whipped Shea Butter! You’ll need just four basic ingredients to create this decadent body butter. It’s not greasy, you don’t need to heat anything up, and half of the ingredients are easily substituted. If you’ve never made a whipped body butter before, or you just want to understand how they work a bit better, this post is a brilliant place to start. In the post, I’ll be going over the essential elements of this body butter and explaining why we use each ingredient, while the video focusses more on the making technique. Let’s dive in!

Intense Hand Rescue Cream

This decadent Intense Hand Rescue Cream became an instant favourite of mine while it was still warm in the beaker. It’s thick and rich, with a very luxurious skin feel and stunning slip. It’s also loaded with all kinds of great-for-skin goodies like colloidal oatmeal, ceramides, allantoin, shea butter, and glycerin. I’ve been applying it to my hands and body constantly as crap-tons of handwashing and dry weather continue to do a number on my skin. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Cinnamon Cocoa Massage Bars

I had a lot of fun creating these deceptively simple Cinnamon Cocoa Massage Bars. They’re silky smooth, cocoa and cinnamon-scented body butter bars that liquify readily on the skin, transforming into massage oil. Inspired by a LUSH product, I had a lot of fun experimenting with different ratios and techniques, as well as testing the bars to make sure they transformed into a gorgeous, slippy, long-lasting massage oil. The technique is really important with this DIY, so make sure you’re taking your time and watching the video so you get it right!

Argan Rose In-Shower Body Conditioner

Today we’re revisiting a project I first shared in May 2014—a rich body lotion inspired by a popular LUSH product—as part of my Bee Better work. This six-years-later update features a new emulsifier, fully percentage-ified amounts, clearer instructions, and a hefty dose of moisturizing vegetable glycerin for super-soft skin. It smells wonderfully of roses and lemon and leaves your post-shower skin feeling fantabulous!
