4 18/03/2019 - BEAUTY, DIY


This whipped body butter contains both coconut oil and cocoa butter so your skin will feel softer than ever!

Be kind to your hard-working skin! This homemade body butter recipe will leave your skin moisturised and soft, thanks to rich cocoa butter and coconut oil. We love its whipped consistency that goes on smoothly and feels light to the touch.

Whipped Body Butter


  • 200g organic coconut oil
    200g organic solid cocoa butter (do not use lotion)
    15 drops of your favourite topical/aromatic essential oil (we love Cedarwood, Lavender, and Frankincense essential oils)


  • Warm a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, then add coconut oil and cocoa butter. Melt until completely liquefied, about 4–5 minutes.
  • Pour into a glass mixing bowl and place in refrigerator for 30–45 minutes to cool and just set but not harden.
  • Stir in essential oils.
  • Using an electric hand mixer, whip until firm peaks form, about 10 minutes.
  • Gently transfer to a seal-able jar or container. Store at room temperature to avoid melting or solidifying.
  • Massage into dry skin!
