[recipe title=”Whipped Body Butter” Servings=”Yield=12 oz. (375 ml)” time=”10–15 minutes active; 2–3 hours inactive” difficulty=”Easy”]
- 1/2 cup (110 g) Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup (50 g) Coconut Oil
- 1/4 cup (50 ml) Jojoba Oil
- 10–20 drops essential oil

- Place shea butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil in a glass measuring cup or dish, and place in a pot of water. Over medium heat, melt the oils together, stirring with a whisk to combine.
- Once the mixture is completely melted, place in the refrigerator for a couple hours until completely cooled and solid. It should have gone from clear to white when cooled.
- Using a hand mixer, whip the butter until it is light and fluffy (like whipped cream).
- Add in your favorite essential oil(s) until you reach your desired aroma.
- Fill a 12 oz. PET jar with the body butter, and refrigerate for another hour before using.
- You can add lavender oil for a relaxing sensation, or peppermint oil for an invigorating skin treatment.
- If the butter begins to melt, you can whip it again and store it in the fridge.
- You may also add a natural food coloring if desired.
