About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Homemade Whipped Body Butter


I made my first batch of homemade whipped body butter.  I can't believe I just said that.  I feel like a character off Little House on the Prairie!  Except they wouldn't have owned an electric mixer.

I have recently joined a group that will send you products for $1 or less in exchange for writing a review.  You can learn more clicking here. You need to be an Amazon Prime member in order to join.  

I received my first pound of organic raw unrefined shea butter earlier this week.  At first I was like what the heck am I going to do with this?  But after googling several uses for it, I thought making the body butter would be a fun experiment.  And surprisingly the body butter turned out fabulous and both Bradley and I love how soft it makes our skin.  Mike is not a fan of lavender but you can change the scent to whatever you prefer.

Ingredients
1/4 cup raw shea butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond oil
20 drops essential oil of your choice (I used lavender)

Directions
Measure out all ingredients into mixing bowl.  Use the whisk attachment and whip for 5 minutes.  Store in container or jar and use as often as you like.
