Have you ever wondered if it’s easy to make your own homemade body butter?
I sure did. It’s awesome to give and get luxurious body butter as a gift at holiday time! It feels and smells incredible! But it can get pricey…also, a lot of the time it seems to have a lot of ingredients that I’m not so sure about. I wondered how hard it was to make homemade body butter!
I am a coconut oil-aholic. Seriously, it’s good for EVERYTHING! So I knew that using a good coconut oil in a body butter recipe would be a good place to start!
But what could I make my homemade body butter smell like??
I didn’t have any oils on hand to add fragrance, and, let’s be honest, the best part of silky store-bought body butter is the insanely good smells!
So To make my homemade body butter smell delish, I had to get creative
…and you’re gonna LOVE what I “cooked” up! 😉
Your NEW FAVORITE HOMEMADE BODY BUTTER RECIPE!
It is insanely easy. It smells like a winter night with warm cocoa. It hydrates your skin like CRAZY. I can’t say enough good things about this homemade body butter.
The secret is in HOW to mix it though! You want it to keep that whipped consistency, because, as you know, coconut oil can either get hard-as-rock in the cold weather or straight liquid in warm weather. You want your butter to keep its whipped, creamy consistency if you plan to gift it OR use it personally. 🙂
All you need is cocoa powder and organic coconut oil! Easy right?
Mix them together and…..
Then whip the snot outta them with a wire wisk. Do NOT use a blender as they create too much heat for the coconut oil. It needs to be room temperature/solid, but moldeable… to whip correctly.
This butter will set up to be slightly hard, but will NOT harden like normal coconut oil does because it was whipped.
Spoon into a pretty jar! You’ll have enough to make 2- 1/2 pint jelly jars full! So, one to gift and one to keep!
OOO! And bonus! This butter gives your skin a slight glow! Perfect for winter’s dry and pale skin 😉
