My Homemade Coconut and Lavender Body Butter Recipe

In March 2014, while on a yoga retreat in Costa Rica, I purchased a dreamy coconut oil based body butter. It smelt delicious, and felt like luxury on my hands. As I was getting closer, and closer to the bottom of the jar I was getting more, and more anxious about what I would do when it eventually ran out. Then I realised, I had the recipe in my hands! After a little googling, and some trial and error, I was able to make a perfect replica of my favourite body butter.


  • Lavender Oil – 20 drops
