Sweet, smooth and silky soft. This yummy body butter massage cream is not only ideal for romantic massage, but also leaves you with sensational skin when you're done playing with it.
This recipe is lightly sweetened with honey and makes an unscented but edible body butter (it actually smells oh-so-slightly of honey).
Or you can add essential oils if you prefer a scented body butter massage cream (not edible, though!) I've included four optional scent blends for you to try. Enjoy!
3/4 cup (4.5oz) Cocoa Butter
3/4 cup (4.5oz) Shea Butter
2 tablespoons Apricot Kernel or Jojoba oil
1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E (or 1 capsule)
1 tablespoon Honey powder (optional for edible body butter)
The recipe above makes a sweet edible body butter - no yucky-tasting essential oils (they smell wonderful but mostly taste dreadful!)
If you want to scent your body butter massage cream, you can omit the honey powder and add one of the following blends.
Stirring the mixture with a spoon will give you a firm consistency, more like a body butter bar than a whipped butter. Pour the hot, liquid body butter into a deodorant tube or a silicone cupcake mold and let it cool.
Play around with the recipe - experiment to see what you like best.
My favorite supplier for aromatherapy recipe ingredients - especially the basics like butters and Vitamin E oil - is Mountain Rose Herbs. Their prices are good, their staff are friendly and helpful, and their quality is excellent. Here's some quick links to the ingredients you'll need for this edible body butter massage cream...
For .essential oils, I use doTerra. After comparing and experimenting with my recipes, I saw that recipes using doTerra's oils worked faster and better - plus I never experiences any of the glitches, like headaches or skin irritation, that happen with some other brands.
doTerra's oils cost more, which makes sense because with essential oils, you always get what you pay for. Spending a little more for something stronger and cleaner makes sense to me. (Plus I actually use fewer drops than the recipes call for, which cuts costs. Genius!)

If you're someone who loves choices, Amazon is great. You can compare, read reviews, and there's lots of price ranges to fit your budget. Just remember to buy the best essential oils you can afford - they go directly into your bloodstream, so you don't want junk.
