All the different oils that go into making this body butter make it a treat for your skin. You know exactly what natural ingredients are going into your lotion. I like to use it on my face to prevent breakouts, but you can also use it on your feet, elbows, and knees to make them nice and soft.
DIY Whipped Body Butter
- Prep Time:3 hours
- Cook Time:10 minutes
- Total Time:3 hours and 10 minutes
- Servings:1 jar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1 cup cocoa butter
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoon dried, fragrant flowers (I used lilacs)
Dry flowers of choice ahead of time (a couple of weeks should do it). Another option is to use floral essential oils. If you want to eat a couple of the flowers, we won’t stop you.
Add all ingredients together and melt down until the mixture becomes homogenous.
Put oil mixture in the fridge for about 3 hours or until the mixture becomes semi-solid.
Mix up mixture with spoon until it resembles consistency below.
Using an electric beater, whip the butter until it reaches the consistency shown below. Do not beat for too long otherwise the butter will melt and loose its shape.
Spoon whipped body butter into cute jars and enjoy. Store in a cool, dry area.
