DIY Whipped Body Butter

If you’re into luxurious body butters that are as equally as nourishing, this DIY project is just for you! I love using all natural body products, and whipped body butters are one of my favorite to make because it’s so easy to tailor all the ingredients to your own liking.

{Here’s what you’ll need}

…and that’s it!

Note: This butter will remain in its whipped consistency under moderate temperatures. Keep from direct heat, as it will melt. Since this all natural butter does not contain preservatives, this butter should only be good for up to 3 months. 

Disclaimer: I purchased the sweet almond oil, virgin coconut oil, essential rosemary oil and vitamin E oil used/displayed in today’s post at my local Whole Foods Market and farmers market. The NOW lemon essential oil (nowfoods.com) and shea butter (racosmetics.com)  were given to me for free for review.

    Do u have to,use the rosemary and lemon oil or is that just for scent?

  • Mae July 7, 2013, 10:32 pm

    Hi! That is for fragrance. You are welcome to omit or substitute other essential oils.

    What other essential oil could be used to replace the lemon and rosemary

  • Mae July 8, 2013, 10:10 am

    There’s so many you can choose from :) Some of my other favorites are peppermint and lemongrass.

    Hi Mae. I really like what you used as a double boiler. What is it exactly and where can I get one? T.I.A. ^_^

    Hi! It’s a double boiler pan that I purchased via Amazon Nordic Ware Universal 8 Cup Double Boiler Fits 2 to 4 Quart Sauce Pans

    If you do not want to purchase a double boiler, you can certainly create one at home! I boil water in my kettle or over the stove. In a glass bowl, I place my shea or cocoa butter or coconut oil; I then place the bowl with the butter over the boiling water (if using your kettle, pour your boiling water in a different bowl) and put a kitchen towel on top to contain the steam. After about 5 minutes, you’ll find that you’ve more than melted your butter enough for it to whip.

    Hi how would add mango please ? to the body butter

  • vanessa September 3, 2013, 11:34 am

    I love your style. That all natural mixture is that only for your skin, or your hair, or both.

  • Mae September 3, 2013, 11:43 am

    Thanks! It can be used on your body or your hair. I would refrain from using it on sensitive areas like your face though due to the essential oils.

  • Taler November 9, 2013, 1:55 am

    I was wondering what size containers you used for your body butter..
