The wind is blowing, it's rainy. Good time to stock up on organic body products


I just mixed up another batch of our Organic Body Butter waiting for it to cool, add the organic oils and whip. Its a mixture of Shae Oil, Olive oil and Coconut oil that, once finished is as light and creamy and lasts for a very long time.

We have 1.5 oz containers for sale in our On The Farm section.




This is how we make it:

Melt 8oz Pure Shae Butter, 4 oz. Coconut oil and 4 oz  of olive oil in a double boiler. We use a metal bowl over a saucepan.

Once melted, set the bowl in a larger bowl of ice water, add 20 drops of essential oils and whip with a stick mixer. Tonight we made lavender. We make orange - clove a lot too.

We mix and let it rest then come back in 10-15 min and whip some more. After a while it gets thick and
creamy.

Then we load it into containers weighing out 1.5oz. This recipe makes 10 - 1.5oz containers.
