20 drops frankincense

mix essential oils together

then add 4 ounces of vodka

I love making dry body oils scented with essential oils!  This one hydrates skin like a body butter, but feel silky & light like a dry body oil.   Plus it smells like gingerbread!

combine the following in a glass bowl or measuring cup:

1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil

1/2 cup apricot kernel oil

2 Tbsp rice bran oil

2 Tbsp safflower oil

1 tsp vitamin e oil

30 drops ginger essential oil

10 drops cinnamon essential oil

10 drops clove essential oil

10 drops nutmeg essential oil

Carefully pour mixture into 8 ounce glass spray bottle

To use:  After a shower or bath, pat skin dry, then apply this nourishing dry body oil to arms and legs.   It feels light and absorbs into skin quickly, leaving a smooth finish.

Tip:  to avoid your bathroom floors getting slippery from the oils, spray or apply the oils to your hands and then rub into your arms and legs.

    Hi! Can you tell me how many of the small mason jars you filled with the whipped body butter recipe? Thank you!

    • Sarah Lewis November 3, 2017 at 7:38 am - Reply

      Hi Amy,
      It makes about 4-6 cups of whipped body butter (it varies depending on how much air gets whipped in). So that should fill 16-24 of the 2 ounce mini mason jars.
