We love using our 100% Raw Shea butter. In this recipe we used Lavender Oil but you can use any of your favorite essential oils. Once it’s made all you have to do is add it to a cute little mason jar and decorate it with a fun ribbon.
We used the liquid dyes in purple color to give this homemade body butter cream it’s color. These are the same types of dye colors you use in homemade soaps. You can purchase just the primary colors and mix equal parts of red and blue to make the color purple. I’ve also heard you can use regular food coloring but I haven’t tried that yet myself.
