How to make Bodybutter and Lipbalsem – Heli St. Luce

List of Ingredients:

This month I made body butter and lip balm. Both items are a mixture of 25-40% oils to solids plus 1-3% essential oils. Lip balm is just melted, mixed and put into containers. Body butter is whipped after setting to make it creamy. I use a mixture of oils and solids chosen for maximum nutritional and healing benefits.
