homemade whipped body butterWhip it Up!

There is nothing more luxurious than homemade bath and body products that are 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’m sure it feels and smells better than it actually tastes! I’ve included the full tutorial and recipe below. It is a base of two butters and two oils which make for a smooth and silky cream when melted, chilled and whipped together. 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. Feel free to choose your favorite essential oils according to your personal preference. Once finished, label your body butter with our set of pretty Printable Labels. Head over this way for more natural beauty recipes!

A note about essential oils: Some cold-pressed essential oils, especially citrus oils, can be phototoxic when applied to skin that is exposed to sunlight. Phototoxic effects may include redness, blistering and a rash. 


You can easily order Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil from Amazon. To contain your body butter, these Weck Jars work wonders!
