Today will be my last post for a couple of days as I'm going to Ibiza tomorrow til Thursday! I assure you I will be back in full force later this week as I've got lots and lots of brilliant ideas for blog posts. Today's post is a really simply yet luxurious recipe - macadamia body butter!
You can buy macadamia body butter from Akoma skincare for about £2-3 for a 100g. Macadamia but oil is extremely light and non-greasy yet it is powerful enough to penetrate and moisturise the skin.
To make this recipe you will need 100g of macadamia butter. Melt this in a double boiler (a glass bowl on top of a boiling pan of water not touching). Once melted pour into a container and let it soldify again. The reason behind doing this first is that macadamia and other natural plant butters and fats can be a bit grainy at first and melting them can get rid of some of this texture and make it smoother.
Once the butter has solidified again scoop it out and put it in a pestle and morter and grind it until it looks molton. Slowly add trickles of avocado oil to the mix until it looks super soft and creamy.
That's literally it, you can add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oils if you like. I like jasmine in this one but I make it quite a lot without any essential oils at all as its quite a pleasing smell on its own!
Hope you enjoy the recipe, let me know if you make it and your thoughts on it by leaving a comment below. Have a lovely day!
