Basic Body Butter

Massage therapists I have talked to love coconut oil for massage, because it melts on contact with the skin, leaves a protective barrier on the skin, has a slight lathering ability, and easily washes out of towels. Other oils stain, and towels become odorous after a while.

Here are some great variations of this tried and true formula:

COCONUT OIL
Simple scoop coconut oil on your hand.

BODY BUTTER
cup coconut oil
cup cocoa butter

Soften the coconut oil and cocoa butter in a double boiler over medium heat. Remove from the heat and blend, adding a few drops of optional essential oils.

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE OIL
Use 5 drops of essential oil – or less – per ounce of coconut oil.
