Peppermint Cloud Body Butter is a peppermint dream that is lovely in the summer with peppermints cooling effects.  I used rosehip seed oil in this blend to compliment the skin — rosehip seed oil is regenerative and great for healing skin.  The full ingredients list is above.

Mint Rosemary Whipped Body Butter is made with mango and shea butters and my geranium infused jojoba oil.  The mint rosemary combination is lovely for the body as it is highly anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and great for joints and reducing pain while it nourishes your skin.
Ingredients: Shea and Mango butters, Coconut oil, Geranium infused Jojoba, Arrowroot powder (*powder reduces oiliness of product), essential of Peppermint (Mentha x piperita), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis ct. verbenone), and Spearmint (Mentha spicata).

Body Butters are a bit more complicated to make, but if you want to give it a go here is the instructions for making the Peppermint Cloud Body Butter

Melt butters together over a double boiler, whisking with a fork to blend them well.

As the butters liquify, add in coconut oil, and whisk well till all is melted.

Remove from heat and add rose hip seed oil and essential oil synergy.

Cool the mixture in the freezer (or fridge) for about 10 – 30 minutes.

Once the mixture has cooled and is beginning to solidify (it should start to form a semi solid sheen on top but is still soft enough to whip), whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer until the body butter is fluffy — about 10-20 minutes. Once stiff peaks have formed, spoon into jars.

This creates about one quart of whipped body butter.
