Summertime Breeze Body Oil By Little Green Dot


Source: https://littlegreendot.com/summertime-breeze-body-oil-recipe/

Ingredients:

50 ml glass bottle

50 ml cold pressed base oil e.g. sweet almond or grapeseed oil

10 drops geranium essential oil (uplifting and relaxing, a wonderful balancing oil, so ideal if you travel often)

5 drops bergamot (a green citrus scent that is refreshing and cheerful. It’s what makes your Earl Grey Tea smell divine!)

1/2-1 teaspoon dried rose petals (start low, and you can add as you go if you want more)

1 teaspoon dried lemongrass (same applies as per the rose petals)

Directions:

🌈🌈 Put your dried rose and lemongrass into the glass bottle.

🌈🌈 Add the essential oils.

🌈🌈 Add the base oil.

Recipe Notes:

Screw on your cap, roll the bottle gently between your palms, and voila, Summertime in a bottle! And the beauty of this oil is, like a good wine, it gets better with age. The dried herbs you have added gradually release their aroma into your oil as time passes, fragrance gradually transforms over time. Your body oil won’t smell the same next week as it does today. How fun is that!

HOMEMADE WHIPPED BODY BUTTER RECIPE BY LITTLE GREEN DOT

Ingredients:
3/4 cup cocoa butter

1/4 cup coconut oil

Directions:

🍎🍎 In a bain-marie, melt down your hard butters and oils until fully liquid

🍎🍎 Set in the freezer to harden, about 20 minutes.

🍎🍎 Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, whip it up using an electric whisk, a food processor with a whisk attachment, or your KitchenAid (lucky you!)

🍎🍎 If you need to, you can use a hand held whisk, and a lot of elbow grease! 🙂

🍎🍎 Whip about 5 minutes, or until you have created fluffy white clouds. Spoon it into a clean jar or container. It will keep for 3 months.

Slather it on!

Recipe Notes:

Cold climates, adjust recipe to 60% cocoa butter, 40% oil so that it’s not as hard.
