Homemade Whipped Body Butter

It is holiday season and I am happy to be making the majority of the gifts that I will be giving.  I will be giving different people different homemade products but they will all be gifted this amazing homemade whipped body butter.  This is one of the best things that I have ever made in my kitchen.  Seriously, if I could eat it I probably would…actually I probably could and it would be safe unlike the chemical filled alternatives!

I made the decision a few years ago to ditch the chemicals in our home and replace them with healthier homemade concoctions.   I replaced my store-bought body lotion shortly after I made my own deodorant.  My go to lotion is my homemade coconut lotion I have eczema and find that there are times I need something more healing and soothing.  I have made many many different recipes before I hit the jackpot of this recipe but I finally did it and am happy to share!

I mentioned already that I have eczema and I am happy to report that this whipped  body butter relieves many of  the skin issues caused by it.  It relieves my skin of the intense itching and heals the dry patches that eczema can cause.  This is seriously the most soothing whipped body butter that I have created and it is easy to do (can you hear my excitement?)!

Whipped Body Butter Recipe

Making homemade body butter is really very easy and I will share with you a trick I learned during my many many attempts of making homemade body butter.  Are you ready?  Here you go…..

Here is what you need:

  • You can also add essential oils if you would like.  Just add 10-20 drops of your preferred oil (peppermint, lavender, etc…).

Step by Step

Combine all of the ingredients in a mason jar except the essential oils.
Place the mason jar in a medium-sized pot filled with water over medium high heat.
048Occasionally remove your jar and swoosh or swirl the mixture until all of the ingredients are melted together.
Once combined remove the mason jar and carefully pour the mixture into a bowl (add essential oils now).
Homemade Soothing Body ButterThis is where my super secret top-secret tip comes in.   You can set the bowl aside and let it cool or you can stick the bowl in the freezer or outside if it’s really cold for about 10 -15 minutes, doing this not only lessons your cool time but it drastically reduces the time in which you will need to whip the mixture in order to create the butter consistency.  I leave it in the freezer until it looks like this, it has a semi-solid film on the top:

Place your body butter in the fridge for about 10 minutes to set then place it into storage containers of your choosing.

I store my body butter on the other side of the bathroom as the shower because it begins to soften at about 78 degrees.   I hope that you and anyone that you gift this soothing body butter enjoy it as much as I do!

  1. I’ve been making your whipped coconut lotion for a while but this year it hasn’t quite been enough and I’ve looked like I have fleas with all the hopping-around-itching I’ve been doing. This sounds like it might be just what I need!! Does it come by the gallon 😛

    I did find that I needed to keep this in the fridge, it could not retain solidity at room temp. A little greasy as well, but I will try to tweak it to suit.

    I was wondering have to tried to add Neem Oil to this batch. I wonder what would the ratio be? I’m sure you would need to add Lavender and Tree Tea essential oils to mask the neem oil smell.
