Homemade Body Butter Recipes
I’ve learned over the years that raw honey is incredible for your skin. It has antibacterial properties and skin-saving antioxidants that nourish your skin and slows down the signs of aging.
Our bees are busy, and it won’t be long before I have an abundance of honey to use. While I wait for the first batch of honey, I’ll be gathering all the supplies I need to make each of the following recipes.
1½ cups of coconut oil measured as solid
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons grapefruit or other citrus essential oil
Mix all together until combined and smooth.
Transfer to a container and cover.

1 cup of organic honey, slightly warmed
1-2 tablespoons of milk, preferably whole
The juice of ½ -1 whole orange
Warm the honey slightly to make it easier to spread on.
Stir in 2 tablespoons of milk (warming the milk helps as well) and the juice of ½ an orange.
