Our Butter Essential Oil is Co2 extracted oil from Anhydrous Milk Fat. It originates from Europe and has a pale yellow shade and medium consistency. It also has a very rich, warm, distinct, buttery aroma…and we mean that literally! It smells just like fresh butter while offering a number of benefits that regular butter couldn’t easily compete with…

Anti-aging, skincare, and Butter Essential Oil go hand in hand! This is mainly due to three fatty acids: caproic, myristic and palmitic. Caproic acid provides conditioning and moisturization for the skin, while myristic acid has lubricating, brightening, and detoxifying properties. Lastly, palmitic acid is already a natural component of healthy skin that benefits both the skin barrier and acid layer and can be found in Butter Essential Oil.

Due to its exceptional skincare properties and rich aroma, many high-end bath and body products often contain Butter Essential Oil. We actually use it as an important ingredient in our Super Custom Anti-Aging Blend.

When compared to ordinary butter that you buy at your local supermarket, Butter Essential Oil has a much longer shelf life. This is because it doesn’t contain heavier compounds such as butyric acid and lactic acid. This oil is also food grade, so feel free to add it to foods that could use an enhanced flavor, but fewer calories.

Butter Essential Oil blends very well with other food-like essential oils, such as Vanilla Essential Oil and Cocoa Essential Oil. But be warned, a little goes a long way and you should only add up to 1 to 2 drops per oil with these!

Within the metaphysical space, Butter Essential Oil also provides spiritual benefits associated with the heart chakra. If you find yourself needing to heal and balance your heart space, try incorporating this oil into your favorite practices. Its aromatic properties offer a feeling of home, warmth, and comfort. In turn, this may help you relieve heart chakra blockages such as distrust and emotional pain. Related crystals for use with Butter essential oil include citrine, which is said to promote abundance and self-confidence.

We’ve provided three awesome ways of ways to incorporate Butter Essential Oil into your life with recipes below!
