This is a totally different kind of recipe post... a non-food recipe
Introducing my Organic Belly Butter/Oil!!
This is as pure as it gets, no synthetic ingredients, dyes, fragrances, or toxic ingredients and YOU can make it all on your own right at home!!
This is so important when you’re pregnant or trying to get pregnant, as reducing your exposure to toxins during these times is vital! By making your own belly butter/oil at home, you’re in full control of the ingredients and quality of those ingredients. Not to mention, the cost is substantially lower than those ready made belly butters. It leaves your belly (and any other skin covered body part) so soft and moisturized. It helps fight that itchy skin us mamas get as our belly’s (and bodies) are growing during pregnancy. It also works great as a pregnancy massage lotion/oil (hint hint all you baby daddy’s/partners out there). Feel free to get creative on the essential oils you add for different scents! I went with lavender as I love the scent and find it so relaxing!
This recipe is safe for pregnant mamas and babies, grain free, gluten free, organic, and very gentle!
What Makes this a High-Vibing Body Product?
First and foremost, putting your own love, gratitude, time and energy into making this product at home will automatically raise the vibration of it. This will also help to balance your sacral and heart chakras. Putting your love into the belly butter you prepare will literally raise the vibrational frequency as love is the highest vibration out there!
What you put onto your body is just as important as what you put in it! Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of the human body?? Using organic, GMO free, body/beauty products can level up your healthful pursuits and complement a clean healthy diet! Also having products with minimally processed ingredients lead to an overall higher vibrational frequency in your body. Basically, using organic body/beauty products provides us with extra energy currency!
Equipment Needed to Create this Recipe:
double boiler or a small sauce pan and medium-large glass bowl
glass jar with lid
Organic Belly Butter/Oil
(gluten free & safe for mamas-to-be)
Prep time: 5 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Yield: about 3/4 cup
~½ cup of organic, cold pressed, unrefined, virgin coconut oil
~¼ cup organic shea butter
5-10 drops of organic lavender essential oil (or any other pregnancy safe essential oil you desire)
How to Create this Product:
In a double boiler (or in a large glass bowl placed over a pot of water), bring about a cup or two of water to a boil.
To the top pot of your double boiler (or the glass bowl), add the coconut oil and shea butter. Warm only until the coconut oil and shea butter just liquify. Mix them together well.
Pour the mixture into a glass jar, making sure the mixture isn’t too hot (but don’t wait for it to cool down all the way or it’ll solidify in the pot/bowl).
Once it's cooled a bit, add your essential oils and mix gently. Cover your jar with a lid and place into the fridge for a few hours to re-solidify!
That’s all! Enjoy!!
Feel free to double, triple, or even quadruple the recipe for a larger batch!
This stays good at room temperature for weeks and weeks. Buttt I think you’ll find yourself going through it much faster than that.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!!
