I am excited to share with you this luscious whipped body butter that will leave your skin feeling soft, moisturized and pampered for days. A combination of butters and oils creates a perfect base for your essential oils of choice. This recipe uses Grapefruit and Wild Orange, but feel free to use your favorite essential oils to create your own personalised scent.

You’ll need:
½ cup shea butter
½ cup cocoa butter
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup Fractionated Coconut Oil
15 drops Grapefruit essential oil
15 drops Wild Orange essential oil


  1. Measure all butters and oils in glass jar.
  2. Fill a large skillet/saucepan with one to one-and-a-half inches of water. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce to a simmer and add the glass jar to the center of the saucepan to melt and combine ingredients.
  4. Stir every few minutes until the ingredients are melted and combined (10–15 minutes). Tip: Use a popsicle stick to stir for easy cleanup.
  5. Once everything is melted, remove from heat and let sit 5–10 minutes. Add desired essential oils.
  6. Once essential oils are added, let rest in a cool place (such as the refrigerator) until set.
  7. When chilled, remove from refrigerator. With a stand or hand mixer, start on low and slowly turn the speed higher until the lotion becomes light and fluffy (around 3–5 minutes).

Store mixture in a glass jar and keep in a cool place. If needed, re-fluff the body butter by whipping it back up to desired consistency with a hand mixer.
