This has got to be the easiest DIY body butter ever! If your in a crunch for time but need a thoughtful gift, try this recipe. All you’ll need are 2 simple ingredients, plus pure essential oils!
The key to making this body butter amazing is to really whip it well. I’ve tried making this without an electronic handheld blender, and it really didn’t turn out very well. You definitely have to make sure to whip it for about 10 minutes to ensure that you get the nice fluffy, creamy texture. Otherwise, you’ll end up with super thick and greasy cream that doesn’t apply very nicely!
Whipped Body Butter
- Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
- Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
- Stir in essential oils.
- Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
- Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
- Massage into dry skin!
Other essential oils you could try in this body butter:
- peppermint, wintergreen & rosemary would make a really nice foot massage cream
- lavender and bergamot would help sooth dry skin and calming the nerves
- ylang ylang, orange, and idaho blue spruce
- orange, citrus fresh, and copaiba
