No, truly, I’m amazed. This was my first attempt at making up my own recipe, and of all the body butters I have tried, this one takes the cake. It’s creamy, soft, smooth, decadent, ultra-moisturizing, yet somehow light. It soaks right in, and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. The scent is very mild, and you can customize it to your liking with all sorts of essential oil combinations.

This Whipped Body Butter was so easy and fun to make, and came out perfect on the first try.

I’m so thrilled to share this recipe with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

DIY Whipped Body Butter Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Shea butter (I got mine here)
  • 1/2 cup mango butter (I got mine here)
  • 1/2 cup kokum butter (I got mine here)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter (I got mine here)
  • 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil
  • 100% Certified Pure essential oils (suggestions below)

For ultra-healing body butter, I did about 5 drops Helichrysum, 10 drops Frankincense, 10 drops Geranium, 10 drops Lavender.

If you are just wanting a fun scent, play around with different combinations! I love Wild Orange* and Peppermint, or Balance Blend, or Lavender. The options are really endless, and you can tailor this to your own personal tastes.

*Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity (basically increased chance of sunburn). I doubt it would make much difference in such small quantities, but if you are very fair-skinned, you may want to avoid putting citrus oils in your beauty products if you plan to be in the sun within 12 hours of application.

 


Directions:

Add all ingredients except for the Fractionated Coconut Oil and the essential oils into a glass bowl or measuring cup.

Add a few inches of water to a saucepan, and place the glass bowl in the water to create a double boiler. Turn the burner on to medium high heat.

Let all the ingredients melt down, stirring occasionally.

After it’s all melted, add the fractionated coconut oil and mix in. You will want to wait until it is pretty cool to add the essential oils. Once you add the essential oils, give it a nice final stir and either let it rest at room temperature overnight or place in the refrigerator for a few hours until it is solid (not rock hard). It won’t whip if it’s not completely solid. Transfer to another bowl big enough for whipping, or to your KitchenAid mixer bowl. I just used a hand mixer and it came out great! Start whipping it. It will be a bit grainy at first. Just keep going…

…and soon it will be the most edible looking body butter you’ve ever seen. I left the jar of it on my kitchen counter for a few days so I could show it off to everyone who came over to my house (yep, that excited about it), and I thought it was whipped cream several times. And I LOVE whipped cream. Cruel joke to play on myself.

And there you are! Done!

A little goes a long way and this batch will last you a while! This recipe made two of these 16 oz jars.

  6. Transfer to a storage jar of your choice and enjoy!
  7. If you have extra and want to make sure it doesn’t go bad before you use it (this recipe makes two jars), you can keep one jar in the fridge.

    This looks amazing Emily! I want to thank you so much for my beautiful box! I share my oils a lot and always get asked what I am wearing on the tennis court! I have a pre match routine of wild orange and beramont on my wrists and InTune to keep my “ADD” self focused. Everyone says i make them calm, ha! So proud of you!
