Make Your Own Whipped Coconut Oil Body Butter

 

Coconut oil is having a moment right now, you guys. Suddenly it’s used by everyone for everything. And rightly so, because it’s apparently pretty amazing. It’s full of vitamin E, antioxidants and healthy fats, and can be used in countless different ways. Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy recipe for Whipped Coconut Oil Body Lotion.

It can be whipped up in minutes, smells great, and is super moisturising on dry skin. Also, a little goes a long way, so although this recipe doesn’t make a ton of lotion, it will last. Concentrate on spots where your skin is driest – my elbows, and knees, specifically, then rub the excess wherever else you need a little more moisture. We add a bit of olive oil for moisture , to make it a smooth consistency, and a few drops of lemongrass essential oil. The lemongrass oil gives the body butter a great scent, and lemongrass comes with its own long list of health benefits as well.

Recipe:

Directions:

Add the ingredients to a mixing bowl. Use a hand- or stand-mixer to whip the ingredients on high for 7 or so minutes until they’ve reached a whipped, airy consistency. Remove you lotion from the bowl and store it in a glass container at room temperature. Apply it after a shower for supple, moisturised skin.

We really have to recommend using only organic, unrefined coconut oil for just about all of the topical things you plan to use coconut oil for. Refined coconut oil can have “other” things in it that you might not want to be absorbed into your body through your skin.
