Homemade_Whipped_Body_ButterThere is nothing more luxurious than homemade bath and body products that are so fresh, natural and organic. This grapefruit and lavender body butter is delicious! I had a hard time not wanting to scoop it right into my mouth. . . though I am sure it feels and smells better than it actually tastes. It is a base of two butters and two oils which when melted, chilled and whipped together make this smooth and silky cream. It is on that last step of whipping that you will add your essential oils for the final fragrance. I love citrus mixed with lavender for a soothing yet energetic finish. Of course you can choose your favorite essential oils. These pretty Weck jars of creamy body butter are perfect for gifts, especially for Mother’s Day which is coming right up. After I share one more of my favorite spa recipes tomorrow, I will give you a complete printable set of labels and tags to put together your own homemade spa kit. Oooh, I am so excited! Enjoy this recipe and I will see you tomorrow for another! ~ Lia

Write a review
  1. 1/2 cup each of organic
  2. • cocoa butter
  3. • shea butter
  4. • coconut oil
  5. • olive oil
  6. 1/2 teaspoon of essential oils (I used 1/4 each of grapefruit and lavender)
  1. Add cocoa butter, shea butter, coconut oil and olive oil into a double boiler. If you do not have one, use a glass or metal bowl over a pan of boiling water.
  2. Heat until melted, mixing with whisk. Remove whisk and put mixture into fridge for one hour or until firm.
  3. With hand mixer, whip oils until creamy and light. Add essential oils and mix again.
  4. Spoon your body butter into glass jars. Mixture may seem a bit moist after whipping but will firm up after a few minutes.
  1. Makes about 2 1/2 cups of whipped body butter.
