Homemade Body Butter

So I was looking on Pinterest , and I came across this.
It looked pretty easy so I gave it a try .
                                                     Homemade Body Butter
      1. 1 1/2 cups of coconut oil,measured as solid
      2. 3 Tbls. honey
      3. 2 Tbls. of grapefruit or any other citrus( I used orange zest ) or substitute essential oil to preference
      4. Mix all together until combined and smooth (should look almost like a thin lotion)
      5. Transfer to a container and cover ( tupperware works too)
      6. You're done

I didn't follow the instructions  very well . I made the recipe smaller than what it called for and I put less zest . This can be used for more than body butter . It can be used for shaving cream , lip balm , and for dry spots such as elbows, and cuticles. You can even add this to some hot tea or to your hot bath . Enjoy! :)
