- 1 ½ cups coconut oil
- 2 tbsp. grapefruit zest
- 3 tbsp. honey
Begin by heating your coconut oil in a double boiler situation. Place the coconut oil in a glass bowl and place that glass bowl in an already simmering pot of water. Stir the coconut oil occasionally. After about ten minutes, remove the coconut oil and place the honey and grapefruit zest in the mixture. Stir, and immediately allow the glass bowl mixture to rest in the refrigerator for thirty minutes.
Afterwards, whip the body butter with a hand mixer until soft peaks begin to form. It should look a bit like whipped cream. Store the body butter in a dry, sterilized container.
Note: this recipe’s shelf life is a bit shorter than average due to its grapefruit zest.
