Heavenly Homemade Whipped Body Butter

Ditch the store body cream and make a fantastic blend of natural oils that will soften, moisturize, and soothingly caress your skin. There are many simple recipes for body butter but this one is so luxurious! Let’s start with coconut oil, a great moisturizer. Add shea butter which has so many benefits for the skin and is great in homemade beauty products. Throw in some cocoa butter with antioxidant qualities  that take care of most signs of aging, and also protects the skin from outside agents as well. The antioxidants and beneficial organic molecules protect the skin from environmental, internal, and external forces that can cause irritation or damage to the skin.  Finally add some almond oil (or other favorite oil such as avocado or grape seed oil) and Vitamin E and you have a perfect delight for your dry skin. And the best part, it smells like chocolate.

  1. Hi Carol, I currently use coconut oil on my skin, but would love to have a go at this. I’m not sure I’ll be able to find shea butter and cocoa butter though. I’ll have to pop into the health shop next time I’m in town.


    1. Check out amazon too. They have it on the US site so I’m assuming it would be there on a European version. Coconut oil is great if you can’t find shea. I’d be surprised if you don’t have cocoa butter.

  2. This does sound heavenly! My skin gets so incredibly dry in the winter, this sounds like it would be incredibly moisturizing. Thank you so much for sharing it with us on Party in Your PJ’s. I’m pinning it so I can make it!

  3. Thank you for this recipe. I go through lots of body butter and my skin will appreciate the natural ingredients. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story and we hope you will join us again next week.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
