Whipped Body Butter

A great recipe to make a natural lotion at home to pamper your dry skin.  With it's cloud-like consistency, no one will believe you made it yourself!
By Kim Cardentey

Ingredients:                                
  • 1/2c Shea Butter
  • 1/2c Cocoa Butter
  • 1/8c Coconut Oil
  • 1/3c Mango Butter
  • 1/2c light oil like almond, olive, jojoba, or kukui nut
  • optional essential oils for scent. Use 10-30 drops depending on the scent and strength you'd like. I use Lavender a lot for relaxation.

Instructions:
  1. In a double boiler over, combine all ingredients except the essential oil(s).
  2. Bring to medium heat, stirring constantly until all ingredients are melted. 
  3. Once melted remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Place in refrigerator and let cool for another hour. You want it still very soft.
  5. Using a hand or stand mixer, whip for 10-13 minutes fluffy.
  6. Return to refrigerator to set, about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Store in a jar with a lid.  Keep below 75 degrees or it will melt and not stay whipped. If your home is warmer than that store in the refrigerator.
