It’s like butta…
I was so intrigued by the concept of body butter when I first started making my own organic goodies. It was such a luxury product in my mind. It’s too bad I paid too much to use so much of it with junky garbage in it! I hope we save someone out there from doing the same. Now we can actually HELP our bodies be their best by supporting them with the amazing gift of essential oils! I knew that body butter was something I wanted to have all the time and be able to offer to other ladies wanting to treat themselves, too. So I began formulating, making and testing like a mad scientist. A happy and well-moisturized mad scientist. 🙂
This recipe is one of my stand-by’s. 🙂 Simple, simple and it whips up really nice and fluffy, about double to a cup and a half. This recipe was born out of my need to create a body butter recipe that didn’t have 4,000 ingredients and used equal parts in the recipe. I’m weird. I like equal parts…
My first blog with this recipe make up was for cinnamon roll body butter. If the graphic below is difficult to read, its the same as the Whipped recipe but the 3 ingredients are coconut oil, shea butter and mango butter (instead of cocoa butter). Important to note though, this recipe makes about 1 cup of super thick body butter. It’s like butta…
Isn’t that a pretty product? Cinnamon Roll Body Butter was my first attempt at a ‘real blog’ and I had fun letting loose on decorating the jar. The body butter smelled great and had a great consistency too.

Liquefies too easily: melt it down and add a tsp of beeswax per cup. Allow to cool, harden and rewhip.
Too thick: try melting it down and adding a tsp of sweet almond oil per cup. Allow to cool, harden and rewhip.
And for conversions it’s helpful to know one cup = 8 oz.
If you’re new to making your own body butter, you need to know this body butter is not like big chain store products. It is highly concentrated natural emollients and a dab will do ya! Seriously. When I made my first body butter at a make and take I looked at my 2 oz jar and thought, “Oh, this will last me for one LEG. Pfft” But it lasted me several months! A pea size dot can cover an entire appendage! 🙂
If you haven’t tried it yet, DO IT! My favorite new idea is that when we make our own products we are taking corporate greed out of corporate hands. They’re not doing a good job of looking out for our interests!
