How To Make a Luxurious Body Butter That Your Skin Will Love

This is a very simple go-to recipe for an old fashioned whipped body butter. It is so great for very dry skin, or just on your hands after gardening. Making skincare products at home can be quick and simple! This is a totally natural, hypoallergenic body butter.

I got in to making natural skin care years ago when my babies reacted to the so called “mild” baby soaps. This whipped butter is a firm fave of mine.

Make sure that you store it somewhere under 25 Celsius or it will melt. If it does melt, you can simply re-whip it again, it won’t be ruined, I promise.

Feel free to mess around with different flavor combinations – I like plain lavender, especially as a baby bed time massage. Orange and vanilla is another great combo!

This is a nice easy and satisfying introduction to making your own body care items at home.

Whipped Body Butter Recipe

For this you will need:

STEP ONE: In a pot melt together 50g/2oz of Shea Butter and 50g/2oz  Coconut Oil.  Add 1 Tablespoon of Almond Oil or Apricot oil.


STEP TWO: Optional – add 5 drops of your favourite essential oil- I like Lavender. Mix well and put in the fridge to cool until just starting to set.

STEP THREE: Whip the mixture with a beater until light and creamy. Don’t eat it, it looks delicious, but it isn’t.


STEP FOUR: Use a scraper and put into a small jar. This will last at least 12 months. Keep below 25 Degrees. If the butter melts don’t panic, it is still usable, but it will loose its whipped-ness.

This is perfect for eczema or other dry skin conditions. Use it liberally 1-6 times per day as required.

As with all new skin care products, test on a little area first and check you don’t react to the ingredients before slathering it everywhere!

    • I do it just as the edges are set but the middle is kind of like soft butter to poke. Much more set than that and you will get those gritty lumps in it. You can resolve that by re-melting and re-setting, or just ignoring them 🙂
