About This Class

In this 25 min class, you will learn how to make your own body butter by using only three ingredients: olive oil, coconut oil, and cocoa butter. These ingredients are easy to work with and great for beginners.

The body butter you'll make in this class is great for dry and sensitive skin, it can help to protect your skin from UV radiation and can aid its rejuvenation.

You can use the body butter as a face cream or lip balm as well.

I designed this class as an entry to homemade skin care techniques. I give you an overview of skin care ingredients and teach you the basic technique for homemade skin care. I also talk about what to look out for when you buy your ingredients, how to store your body butter, and what else you can use in homemade skin care.

Homemade body butters are great because not only are you using natural ingredients but you can also customise it to your personal needs.

You don’t need any prior knowledge or experience for this class and only basic kitchen equipment.

If you want more information on skin care ingredients and techniques, check out my blog Live Small - Be More.
