Whipped Coconut Body Butter

I scooped out about half a jar of coconut oil, put it into my kitchen aid mixer and whipped it up for about 7 minutes and there you have it!! I also added a few drops of scent to mine.
My favorite time to use it is after bath or shower when my skin is still wet, scoop out some and rub all over, let it soak in for a minute, then lightly towel off. I love this stuff!!

Body Wash - DIY

Dove Body Wash
This is the most amazing DIY body wash ever!! 

2 cups water per bar
Grate bar with a cheese grater into what looks like fine grated cheese, put in a pan, add water and heat on medium heat till soap is dissolved, remove from heat and let cool. It will get thicker as it cools. Once cool put into bottles or any container.

**Must use dove moisturizing cream bars or olay moisture bars for this recipe. These are not considered bar soap, but a moisture bar. Any other type of bar soap you end up with either mucus or a hard gelled up glob!!!

I added a little more water to mine to make it a little thinner, once it cools if it is to thick for what you like add a little cool water at a time and stir to get the thickness you prefer.
