Ingredients: To make this whipped body butter, you’ll need 1/3 cup each of coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter wafers, as well as 1/3 cup of jojoba oil, 2 teaspoons of arrowroot powder (we recommend this brand), and your choice of essential oils.
Begin by melting the coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter in a double boiler or saucepan over low heat. If a double boiler isn’t accessible, a large Pyrex measuring cup can be substituted instead.
Once the coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter have melted, take the mixture off the heat and add the jojoba oil and essential oils. Thoroughly mix the ingredients together until the essential oils have been evenly incorporated.
Transfer the melted mixture into a sizable kitchen aid bowl or a medium-sized glass bowl, and put it in the refrigerator. Leave it to cool until it has solidified, usually taking around two hours. Alternatively, you can use the freezer to expedite the cooling process.
After the mixture has solidified, take it out of the refrigerator and place the bowl into a kitchen aid mixer or use a hand mixer. Whip the body butter until it becomes light and airy. If you are using arrowroot powder, add it to the mixture and continue to beat it. A hand mixer works just as well if you don’t have access to a kitchen aid mixer.
To complete the process, use a spatula to transfer the whipped body butter into a clean and dry glass jar. Store the jar in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat. Your homemade whipped body butter is now ready to use and should last for several months.
