Homemade Whipped Coconut Body Butter

This homemade whipped coconut body butter is the perfect way to keep your coconut oil from becoming too solid in the colder temperatures. I have been using coconut oil for close to 6 years now and it has taken me this long to discover the absolute joy of whipping it into this delectable body butter. Delectable because it’s seriously good enough to eat! And joy of feeling this silky smooth butter slide onto your skin. And it’s all too easy. I always need something to celebrate the onset of winter (here in the southern hemisphere). I feel the blues as temperatures get colder, so any little nurturing gives me that much needed boost. Coconut oil makes such a great carrier oil, making this whipped coconut body butter so versatile. In minutes you can add a variety of other conditioning oils as well as essential oils making the butter suitable for:

  • after shave soother
  • sunscreen
  • scar or burn cream
  • face cleanser and moisturiser
  • pregnancy and baby skin care
  • massage oil
  • personal lubricant
