    Hello Jacky,
    Nice recipe, thanks for sharing. This body butter would make a great gift. ;o) I would recommend that you avoid artificial {man made} fragrances, but essential oils are wonderful to use in skincare products. Ture essential oils are plant extractions and offer many lovely aromatherapy benefits.
    Smiles, Paula

    Brilliant project.. for the fact that the honey makes solid not making the the oils melt makes it great. As i was following how it was done it was at the back of my mind wont the oil melt?

    Nice collections…

      Thanks. I actually made the non honey version first and it was melting in the mixing bowl. So I had to go back to the drawing board and melt it again and add in the honey. Now it’s still solid.

    I love the idea of making your own beauty products. You know exactly what goes in them and ultimately on your skin. I would love it if you would share this on my linky party Tout It Tuesday. http://www.claimingourspace.com/2012/06/tout-it-tuesday-9.html

    It looks like you’re using beeswax and not honey as stated in part of your post.

      You’re right, I should specify that. I used beeswax (not honey) but the cream has a subtle scent of honey.

    Great project, really excited to try these for Christmas gifts…. do you have any suggestions about which shea butter product to buy?

      I don’t have much experience with shea butter, except with the one I bought. But I think if you buy it from a reputable place you should be ok. Just look for ‘pure’ or organic shea butter without any additives. Also, from what I’ve read it’s supposed to be a light yellow to cream color and not supposed so smell too strong (it does smell a little though). If it does or if it’s yellow it’s probably not good qaulity. Hope that helps!

    I bought the grade A yellow and grade A white shea butters to compare and have used both in my body butter, yellow will discolor clothes slightly so I use less. I have been very satisfied with the butters and the packaging they come in for storage, bonus free shipping. I also ordered the grade A mango butter which I am using for glowing skin. Good prices.

    Hi Jacky,

    I was just wondering about the shea butter. Is that eight ounces melted (liquid) or eight ounces solid that should be weighed first. Did I goof? I am melting eight ounces of solid shea butter to make the body butter.

      You did it right. It’s 8 0Z (1 cup) of solid shea butter that you melt.

    It is important not to use refined butters as they loose their benefits when they go through the refining process.

    Thank you for the link to the canning jars and for this recipe
