Your skin is going to thank me! This Whipped Body Butter Recipe isn’t just any body butter recipe. This is a Whipped Cocoa Butter – Coconut Oil Body Butter! Or is it Butta?
Whipped Body Butter
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. I 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.
