Whipped Body Butter - 3 Simple Ingredients - Holistic SquidYes. This homemade lotion is really as sensual and decadent as it sounds.

For years I was disgruntled with my store bought lotion choices. The Environmental Working Groups Skin Deep Database had confirmed that even the most natural of body products I had found were still pretty toxic. I had spent an accumulation of hours standing in the health food store trying to find a lotion with ingredients that I was willing to slather on my body always coming up empty handed.  I will admit that I grew to love coconut oil after a shower, but I still longed for a fancy body lotion one that smelled delicious and left me feeling pampered. A girly-girl lotion.

Then I discovered homemade body butter (inspired by this post that I discovered on Pinterest). I was delighted to find that this homemade lotion is super simple to make, and I got to work concocting the perfect blend of ingredients.  The trick, is to use the right combination of solid and liquid oils to make a consistency that can be whipped just like you would do with softened butter to make a whipped cream frosting.

My two year old calls it chocolate cream, for obvious reasons, and its particularly satisfying after a day at the beach. I think youre gonna love this stuff.

Whipped Body Butter Ingredients

Whipped Body Butter Method

  1. Using a double boiler gently melt cocoa butter and coconut oil until completely liquid.
  2. Stir in jojoba or other liquid oil.
  3. Allow to chill in the refrigerator until the oil mixture begins to firm, but has not turned completely solid. This may take longer than you expect several hours at least.
  4. Using a standing mixer or hand mixer, whip the semi-solid mixture until white peaks form.
  5. Scoop into glass jars and allow to chill for an hour in the fridge.

Notes:

This homemade lotion will remain whipped in moderate temperatures. If your home is particularly hot, you may want to store your body butter in the fridge. If you forget and your whipped butter melts back to oil, simple re-chill and re-whip.

The consistency of this lotion is true to its name: whipped body butter and as such, it does leave a thin layer of oil when applied. Personally, I love the idea of my skin drinking up the nutrient-dense goodness from these oils. If you prefer a body lotion that absorbs more completely, check out this simple recipe for homemade lotion from Mommypotamus that I also love.  Either way, theres no need to cover your body with synthetic junk ever again.

You can order high quality coconut oil and raw cacao butter from the same vendor on my resource page.
