Coconut Oil Body Butter: Recipe

This Coconut Oil Body Butter recipe only requires one ingredient. All other ingredients are optional. It takes very little time to make, and I would almost bet that, once you start using the body butter, you won't want to return to store-purchased lotion. Try a varying the oils used in this recipe to create a completely different spa-like experience with each use. Can't you feel yourself relaxing already?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C. coconut oil (required ingredient)
  • 1/2 C. Shea butter
  • 1 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 5 drops rosemary essential oil

Directions:

 
1. Place all ingredients into a glass bowl.
2. Mix with a wire whisk for 10 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency. An alternative option is to whip the mixture in your food processor.
3. Spoon the body butter into a glass jar and cover tightly. Store in a cool, dark place (in your cupboard should suffice).
4. Apply by massaging body butter into your skin after you have toweled off from your bath or shower.

  1. I had no idea it was this easy to make body butter! I never use lotion but this looks far and away better than anything at a store.

    1. Thanks - you can omit the shea butter or decrease the quantity. I think that may be even easier. No matter, it's heavenly!

  2. I couldn't agree more! This is indeed a very healthy and natural skin moisturizer that gives you spa-like experience. The good thing about this is that you can use virgin coconut oil which makes you skin feel so smooth and glowing. Been making my own and using this coco butter recipe for more than a year already.

  4. I made a body scrub with coconut oil, shea butter, peppermint oil, and coffee grinds. The peppermint is so refreshing and the oil and butter really make your skin feel wonderful.

  5. do you have to melt the shea butter first? the raw shea butter i have does NOT 'whip' at it's solid state.

    1. I leave mine at room temperature and it's not liquid, nor is it solid. It's more of a butter form. If yours is solid, then you should heat (and stir while heating) it first.
