Easy Homemade Whipped Shea ButterThe world of skincare products can be a little intimidating to navigate. Not only is there a massive variety of different products out there, but many of them also have confusing names. But once I started making and using my own body butter, I was extremely grateful that I had made the effort to learn what it was! It is used to hydrate, nourish, and soften skin, and can be especially useful for treating really dry or cracked skin. This homemade version is packed with all-natural ingredients that will moisturize and revitalize even the driest skin. This simple body butter recipe calls for three ingredients or four, if you count the optional one.

Homemade Body Butter
That being said, your skin will absolutely adore this simple whipped body butter made with natural, nourishing ingredients. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to partially set up. Once the mixture is partially set and opaque, add the essential oils of your choice, and whip with a hand mixer or stand mixer my favorite stand mixer until the body butter is fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. Spoon the finished body butter into a cute little jar. Apply as needed to dry skin anywhere on your body, or give it as a gift!
About measuring the solid ingredients… If using a block of shea butter instead of the discs, how do you measure it. I also added cornstarch dhipped still nothing happened now I have cornstarch lotion. I will try to remember to link straight there from the recipe if I need something. If you do remelt a finished body butter, keep in mind that the essential oils and Vitamin Butyer are more delicate ingredients. I notice this on all the wonderful sites I watch and read and subscribe to.
I love sharing my recipes with you. However, although I love to share my recipes, and then read success stories in the comments like my life-changing facial cleanser recipe! Homemade body butter, is hands down, the nicest thing that you can do for your skin. Lotions are water-based, and butters are oil-based. Body butters, on the other hand, do not contain water, and are a pure mixture of oils, which eliminates the need for a preservative. However, a common complaint about homemade body butter is that they tend to feel a bit greasy. My secret — well first of all, a little goes a looonnngg way!
Thanks for all the fun recipes. If so, what would be the ratios. Could you replace one of the oils with aloe vera gel. I admittedly ususally only use body butters to do a deep conditioning of my hands and feet at night.
Just a couple drops of a quality essential oil should cover up any oil smell. But it worked…set up nicely in the fridge and then whipped pretty nicely. And it smells like you want to eat it too. Hi Lynda.My next project is to make a whipped body butter using the recipe from The Prairie Homestead but to use oils that are helpful for psoriasis. Do I use less shea or just deal with it.

Hi Alicia, thanks for you feed back! Great post!? What kind of essential oil are you using. You might try putting in the freezer a bit longer.
