Silky, soft, luxurious, whipped body butter is a simple DIY skin care product. I love whipped body butters. They soothe and nurture you skin beautifully while giving your skin a lilt of scent plus they are sooo easy to make.
This recipe is easiest recipe I have used. The base of the body butter is just two ingredients ~ Coconut Oil and Shea Butter.
~ Coconut oil penetrates deeply into your skin, providing long-lasting, non-greasy moisture. Coconut oil boasts antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Go ahead, take the plunge and make your own whipped body butter. Or better yet make a few and give as gifts for Mother’s Day.
Silky Soft Whipped Body Butter
•1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil (room temperature)
•3/4 cup unrefined (Grade A) shea butter (room temperature)
Combine the coconut oil and shea butter in a mixing bowl (use a hand mixer or stand mixer). Whip the oil for 30 seconds. Turn off and stir with a spatula until well blended, making sure to scrap the bowl well.
Carefully add your essential oils. (see different combinations below or make your own scent!) Whip it again for another minute. When white peaks form you will know it is ready
Scoop it into a glass jar, cover with a lid and label your body butter. If it gets warm in your home you can simply place the jar in the fridge to firm up the body butter.
