Whipped Eucalyptus Mint Body Butter

1/2 cup coconut oil (112 grams)
6 tablespoons shea butter (81.78 grams)
6 tablespoons cocoa butter (90 grams)
1 tablespoon carrier oil (approximately 14 grams)
1 1/2 teaspoons castor oil, can substitute extra carrier oil (7 grams)
10 drops eucalyptus essential oil
3 drops peppermint essential oil

In a small double boiler over very low heat, warm the coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter until softened. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Add in the carrier oil, castor oil, eucalyptus essential oil, and the peppermint essential oil. Stir together. Place the bowl in the refrigerator until the oils are soft and thick. (This can take several hours depending on if you melted them completely in the first step.)

When the mixture is firm but not hard, remove from the refrigerator and whip using hand beaters or a stand mixer until soft and fluffy. Transfer to mason jars. Seal until ready to use.

Makes approximately 2 1/2 cups whipped body butter
