DIY Coconut Whipped Body Butter
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8 oz
A luxurious moisturizer that pampers your skin.
  • ¾ cup Organic Coconut Oil. We like Nutiva
  • 2 Tbsp Shea Butter. We like Everyday Shea by Alaffia.
  • 35 drops Orange Essential Oil
  • 30 drops Pine Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
  • 15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  1. In a double boiler over low heat, gently warm the coconut oil and shea butter. Be careful not to melt the oil and butter - heat just enough to blend easily. Once incorporated, transfer the oil and butter mixture to a bowl.
  2. Use an electric mixer on low speed to blend the coconut oil and shea butter until well mixed, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Increase the speed to medium for several minutes, then high for several more minutes until the mixture has a lovely, whipped consistency. Remember to keep scraping the ingredients down the sides of the bowl, so they get fully incorporated.
  4. Add the essential oils and blend to incorporate. The whole mixing process should take 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Yields 8oz. Transfer to a container like a wide-mouth canning jar for easy scooping. Unlike coconut oil that has not been whipped, this product is easy to scoop even at cooler temperatures.
