In my recent quest for more natural hair, skin and makeup products I had yet to find a product I liked for body lotion. So I thought, why not make your own? Turns out it is way easier than you can imagine and you know for a fact what it is exactly that you are putting on your skin. So here is the following DIY recipe for an all natural whipped body body:
1 cup cocoa butter
1 cup coconut oil
2 cap fulls essential oil of choice (optional)
First combine all two (or three) ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
Allow ingredients to melt completely.
Once completely melted, remove from heat and place in the fridge. Allow to cool until it has formed a soft solid.
Place mixture into a stand mixer and whip until light and fluffy. Mine took about 10 minutes in my kitchen aid on high.
Next, transfer your body butter into a seal-able container and you are done!
I love this recipe and how simple and pure it is. You can make any fragrance you desire by adding an essential oil or combination of oils. I have been applying this right after I shower and my skin is silky smooth, healthy and happy! Give it a try, your skin will thank you! Happy Monday everyone and stay tuned for an incredible giveaway later in the week!
Hmmmm? Where is the best place to buy cocoa butter?
I bought mine on Amazon. If you click “cocoa butter” under the ingredient list it will take you to the link on Amazon to buy it!
