Whip The Butter

Put one pound of lavender butter into a glass mixing bowl and whip using a hand mixer. I picked this one up at a garage sale for $2 and now only use it for my beauty projects. Whip for about 30 seconds or until it’s completely smooth.

I’m not sure if it’s baby brain or that I’ve given up sugar for 30 days but boy did I have a craving to lick these beaters!!! Yuck! Hahahaha, it looks so much like frosting!

Add The Extract

Add 1 ounce of Orchid Extract to the whipped butter and gently whip it into the mixture. Then using a spatula wipe the sides of the bowl down to incorporate. Orchid extract helps to draw moisture to the skin.

Add The Essential Oil

Add 6mL of Lavender Fine Essential Oil to the mixture using a dropper. Gently whip it into the mixture then wipe the sides of the bowl down with the spatula again. Lavender essential oil is highly moisturizing.

Add The Arrowroot Powder

Add 1 ounce of Arrowroot Powder to the mixture and first fold into the butter with the spatula, then whip with the mixer for about 30 more seconds to finish the batch. Yes, that’s all there is to it! Arrowroot powder is added to lotions to prevent the feeling of “greasiness”.
