This lotion is very nourishing and will leave your skin feeling super soft. This recipe is a different from my whipped coconut oil lotion recipe. It’s less greasy and doesn’t melt. I use this recipe on my sensitive skin and on my children. Add essential oils to create an amazing homemade body butter for yourself of as a gift.

This whipped homemade body butter is versatile! Add different essential oils to each batch.

Below are some of my favorite essential oils to use in this recipe:

  • Peppermint (15­-20 drops).­ You’ll smell like a candy cane! Great for this time of year.
  • Frankincense & Lavender (15 drops each),­ this mix promotes beautiful skin!
  • Gentle Baby Blend, ­ perfect for mamas and babies!
  • Stress Away & Lavender (20 drops of Stress Away and 10 drops of Lavender) , this mix is very relaxing!
  • Grapefruit & Lime (20 drops each). ­ This smells AMAZING!! Just be careful not to wear this outside since citrus oils are photosensitive.

    I made this body butter for myself and a few friends. However, some friends have complained that the cream is drying out the skin on their legs and feet and I dont understand why this is happening since these oils are all great moisturizers. Your advise on this will be highly appreciated.

    Hey there! I just tried out this wonderful recipe and it was great. Everything went well, smelt great, was creamy/whippy and was very simple to make. Only problem I had with it was that it is still really oily when i run it into my skin. I tried a new batch using less oil, then a another new batch using even less oil. This is where it gets confusing… each time I used less oil, the end product seemed more oily! Any idea what is going on or how i can get a less oily end result?

    Dear Tiffany,
    The name caught my attention. I thought I was the only one nuts about coconuts. Anyway, I have just begun a company dealing in coconut products only. I have approached a manufacturer already and hope to begin as soon as possible. Thanks for the e-book! It will help immensely. Ann

    Does this have to stay in the fridge or can it be left in the bathroom? I’d hate for all that work to melt!
