This DIY sensual Body Butter contains a blend of jasmine and vetiver essential oils. These two complementary scents provide this body butter with the antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antiseptic support it needs to strengthen all of its layers.
Jasmine has a sweet, sultry aroma that makes this oil an effective aphrodisiac. A few drops applied on the pulse points are sure to heat things up in the bedroom.
In addition to being an aphrodisiac, jasmine essential oil also holds its own in therapeutic applications by promoting hormonal balance, relieving stress, calming nerves, and soothing tension.
It is also very effective for fortifying skin health. Whether applied solo or as a blend with other essential oils, jasmine is a sweet and subtle addition to all kinds of body products.
Throw together the simple recipe below and apply regularly for beautiful and radiant skin that smells heavenly!
- 8 drops Jasmine Essential Oil
- 8 drops Vetiver Essential Oil
- 1 cup Coconut Oil (solid)
- 1 cup Shea Butter
- 1 cup Almond Oil
Melt the shea butter and coconut oil together over low to medium heat until the combination is smooth and without lumps.
Remove the mixture from heat and add in the jasmine oil, vetiver oil, and almond oil, stirring gently until well blended.
When it is completely cooled, scoop the body butter into a glass jar. Cover and store in a cool, dry place.
Apply over dry skin areas including your elbows, feet, and cuticles.
The body butter will become firm after 2 to 3 days if you let it sit and that’s okay.
The product is good for a week, but you can extend its shelf-life by storing in the fridge and/or using an oil soluble preservative.
