Many people with dry skin will tell you that it is a constant battle. All of them try to find suitable creams and lotions. They even try different ointments, but none of them seem to help much. Plus, they are extremely expensive.  

Dry skin causes problems every time. No matter if it’s hot, cold or there is wind, you feel dried out constantly. Well, today, we’ve got the perfect solution for you! Have you tried to use some of the essential oils for this purpose?

Coconut oil especially can offer various benefits. You may seem suspicious about it, but believe us! It really works! Just put it on your skin after a shower, right before bed and you’ll notice a great difference very soon. It’s inexpensive and it’s natural. You’ll forget about everything that you’ve tried to use.

Here, we’re going to present you a recipe which combines some of the best essential oils with coconut oil and creates an amazing body butter that you’ll use before going to bed and just rinse it away in the morning! It’s that simple! You must put it on your skin at night since the essential oils are sensitive to light.

Citrus Body Butter Recipe That You’ll Use At Nighttime


  • 4 or 5 drops of orange essential oil
  • 1 cup of organic coconut oil
  • 4 or 5 drops of lemon essential oil
  • Zest of half a lemon (organic)
  • Zest of half a lime (organic)
  • Zest of half an orange (organic)


First, the coconut oil should be warmed in a pan for 15 or 20 seconds. That is the optimal time for the oil to become soft. When it softens, put it into a bowl and stir it a bit. Then, add the zest of organic orange, lime and lemon and stir again well.

In the end, add the essential oils. Stir until everything is combined very well. The oil shouldn’t be very hot when you put the essential oils in it. Store it in the fridge and leave it to harden for a while. After some time, try to make an indent using your finger. If it does make an indent, the oil is solid.

Then, use a mixer or put it in a blender. Whip or blend until this body butter becomes fluffy enough. Keep it in a glass jar in a cold area which won’t cause melting.

Apply it after a shower or a bath, right before going to bed. You skin will be fresh, moisturized and smooth with this amazing natural recipe!
