Mix when heating until fully melted and uniform than taking out from the heat. It is important not to get to much heat. The melted butter should be placed aside until the mixture cools to a temperature of up to 30 degrees.
A separate vessel with scales should be filled with vegetable oils: 25 cc almond oil, 25 cc grapeseed oil, 20 cc jojoba oil, and mix.
Check the temperature of the melted butter and when it reaches a temperature below 30 degrees dissolve the oils and mix well.

Want to get to know the wonderful world of natural cosmetics? We are inviting you to our workshop at Lavender House in Pardes-Hana Isreal.
Why did we choose these ingredients?
Shea butter and coconut butter – both wonderful butter for dry skin, cracked and irritated. They are rich in vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants and enrich dry skin with moisture.
Vegetable oils Jojoba, almonds and grape seeds are wonderful for the skin, improving the absorption of compliments, rich in minerals, vitamin E and antioxidants. They are also pleasant to use and easily absorbed.
Carrot oil – rich in beta carotene, gives a beautiful shade to the cream, soothes the skin and gives it shine and flexibility.
Vitamin E – Apart from the fact that it is antioxidant (neutralizes free radicals that accelerate skin aging) it also helps in the process of maintaining the quality of the cream over time.
We recommend that you combine at least three oils to get a significant synergistic combination.
We prefer a gentle, natural scent, but if you like strong aromas, you are invited to drop a lot more than the essential oils (note, they are very concentrated).
Lavender essential oil – a wonderful oil, soothing, and blends perfectly with other oils.
Geranium essential oil – physical and mental balance, good for dry skin treatment.
Jasmine essential oil in jojoba – powerful and luxurious oil, with a wonderful smell, soothing ability, and heating. A joyous and sexually arousing oil.
