Even the Pacific Northwest got a bit of that cold snap a week or so ago and although our air is usually pretty moist, it was DRY and COLD. My skin was itchy and dry, even though I was using my homemade sugar scrub in the shower. It certainly helped, but I think spending time in the pool was a double whammy with the weather. I’m much too delicate for such conditions.

While at New Season’s I saw this cocoa butter, which instantly reminded me of hot summer days in Central Oregon when I was a teen. Yes, we used to slather it on for tanning oil. It came in a small bar and was made by Hershey. make your own body butterI also remember it being very moisturizing. Why not combine it with coconut oil and almond oil?  I’m such a genius……that when I came home to google it……several people have already made body butter…. with these exact ingredients. Just goes to show there are NO original ideas. But it’s original to me and I’m loving it.

This Whipped Body Butter is GREASY and smells like chocolate……..but it soaks in quickly. I would use it at night if you’re wearing anything other than a sweat shirt and yoga pants like I do. I love the smell of cocoa butter, but if you don’t, just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.

This would be a great DIY Holiday gift! I’ve got free printable labels if you need them.

So easy to make. The next time I make it, I won’t whip it so long.

My skin is happy again.

Whipped Body Butter Recipe

Whipped Body Butter Recipe


  • 1 cup Cocoa Butter (raw)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Oil


  1. Melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil in a double boiler.
  2. When melted completely, add almond oil.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator or freezer. I placed mine in the freezer for about 20 min.
  4. When it's somewhat firm, but not in a solid form, you're ready to "whip it.........whip it good".
  5. Mix with your hand mixer until it resembles whipped cream.
  6. Scoop into your container and enjoy!


- I whipped mine about 30 seconds too long. - Store in a cool place so it doesn't melt.

    HA! So glad you’re excited! I love figuring out homemade beauty items!!
    This is pretty fast to make, but sometimes the cocoa butter is hard to find.

    I love making whipped body butters! I made one a few months ago that I used during pregnancy to combat stretch marks. The scent alone keeps me coming back to it. Like yours, the first time I made it I used almond oil, but it overpowered the chocolate scent, so the next time I used olive oil and it smelled divine! Thanks for sharing. Pinning!

    I’m super excited to try this! Where would one buy cocoa butter? And the other ingridents are they the kind you buy at the grocery store?

    What is the effect of whipping too long? In other words, how did you know you whipped it too long? What happens to it?

    Oh and I bet sesame oil would be a good replacement for the almond oil if you wanted to keep the cocoa and coconut smell the most dominant. However, not the the toasted one found in the Asia section of a market! And according to Ayurveda, it is a good choice for winter skin.

      It’s not as creamy if you whip too long. It’s still good to use, it’s just harder to get out of the jar. And yes……Sesame oil would be GREAT!
