Cheesy you can get body butter containers at the dollar store...i mean it has body butter in it but it's nasty so u can just scoop it out & make you own Cheesy

Looks great.

I have been making my own products since 2001.

A part can be what ever you want it to be

example

you are making something and you are only making say 1 oz. of it

you want 1 part of one thing and 1 part of another

So there are 2 tablespoons in 1 oz

so your recipe would be
1 tablespoon of ingredient #1
1 tablespoon of ingredient #2


ok if you want 2 parts of ingredient #1
and 1 part of ingredient #2


There are 3 teaspoons in 1 tablespoon
so your recipe would be

4 teaspoons of ingredient #1
2 teaspoons of ingredient #2


I hope that makes since LOL!!


There are TONS of website on the net that will teach you how to make your own lotions and butter with TONS of recipes you can try just do a search.

Thanks so much for the tutorial  Smiley! I made the body butter this afternoon, and it turned out amazing!!
I didn't have any essential oil and I really wanted to make this butter the moment I saw your tutorial...so I just made it with organic virgin coconut oil and cocoa butter.

Yes, it sure does!  Grin I don't know if I'm more addicted to the smell or to the incredible feeling on my skin, it makes it so soft! This was my first try ever at making beauty product, and I already have many more ideas...Just need to shop for essential oils now!
