Whipped Body Butter Recipe-All Natural

Learn how to make all-natural whipped body butter in a few simple steps.

Nourish your skin with clean, hydrating ingredients. I love making whipped body butter. It's simple to make, and I know the ingredients are free of toxins and chemicals. This body butter will quickly become your favorite. You will see a difference right away and never turn back to expensive store-bought lotions filled with ingredients you can't pronounce.

If you're worried about buying ingredients for homemade products because you don't think you will use up all of the ingredients, don't, because you can use the same basic ingredients for so many things. Homemade diaper cream, sunscreen, lip balm and so much more. Think of it as an investment in your health. In the long run, you're saving money on store-bought products and eliminating chemicals and toxins from your daily self-care routine. Anything you put on your body can be absorbed into your skin. This body butter recipe calls for all-natural ingredients, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive or avocado oil, and coconut oil. Arrowroot powder can be added to absorb some of the oil if you'd like. This body butter absorbs quickly into the skin and will leave it moisturized and glowing.

Benefits of Shea Butter for skin- Shea butter is rich in antioxidants, highly moisturizing, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Shea butter may help eczema and is rich in vitamins A and E. Shea butter’s moisturizing and antioxidants work together to help your skin generate healthy new cells and can help with fine lines and wrinkles.

Benefits of Cocoa Butter for skin- Cocoa butter contains fatty acids, these fatty acids help to hydrate skin and create a protective barrier that holds in moisture. Soothing for dry cracked skin and eczema.

Benefits of Olive Oil for skin- Olive oil is rich in vitamin K, vitamin E, and antioxidants. It increases collagen, moisturizies promotes wound healing, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Olive Oil can also have anti-aging properties. Did you know Olive Oil is great for treating diaper rash?

Benefits of Coconut Oil for skin- Coconut oil is moisturizing, wound healing, antibacterial, and antifungal. It can help to improve skin tone and lighten dark spots.


How long does homemade body butter last? The body butter will last 6 months in an air-tight container. I use small mason jars.

How to make homemade body butter less greasy? Add 1- 2 teaspoons of Arrowroot powder or cornstarch. Start with less and add it slowly. Adding too much will take away from the fluffiness.

How many jars does this recipe make? This recipe will make approximately two 4 oz mason jars.

What is Arrowroot powder? Arrowroot powder is extracted from the arrowroot plant. It's used as a thickening agent in food dishes and baked goods. It's very similar to corn starch. Arrowroot powder will absorb some of the oils in this recipe, making it less greasy on the skin.


½ cup cocoa butter

½ cup shea butter

½ cup coconut oil

½ cup olive or avocado oil

Optional arrowroot powder or cornstarch 1-2 teaspoons

Optional essential oil

How To Make Homemade Whipped Body Butter.

1. Melt the olive or avocado oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter. I put all the ingredients in a glass bowl and melt it in the microwave, stirring frequently. You can use a double broiler, or put a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water. OPTIONAL add arrowroot, cornstarch, or essential oils at this point. You only need to add the arrowroot or cornstarch if you want less greasy body butter. I find that body butter absorbs very quickly and doesn't leave my skin greasy.

2. Let the bowl of mixture cool on the counter for about 15 mins. You don't want to put a hot glass bowl in the freezer because it could shatter. Once the bowl has cooled down, place it in the freezer until the mixture is firm, not hard just firm. See the video tutorial below.

3. Whip the body butter mixture with a handheld mixer until it's light and fluffy, this will take a few minutes. See the video tutorial below.

4. Store in an airtight container. Mason jars work wonderfully. I will link some great ones below along with the cocoa and shea butter I use. Cocoa and shea butter are not expensive and remember you will get multiple uses from them.
