Dry Skin Relief Coconut Oil Body Butter Recipe

With the help of this recipe, you may be able to make an equivalent of the commercially sold coconut oil body butter by Kalinka here.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 ½ tbsp. raw cocoa butter
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. beeswax, grated
  • 2 tbsp. almond oil

Directions:

Begin by bringing the cocoa butter, the coconut oil, and the grated beeswax together into a glass bowl. To the side, allow a pot of water to begin to simmer over low heat. Place the glass bowl into the simmering water and allow the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax to assimilate together as the cocoa butter and the beeswax melt. Afterwards, remove the glass jar from the pot. Stir in the almond oil and the sesame oil.

Place the prepared mixture in the refrigerator for about two hours. The mixture should begin to look cloudy. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and begin to whip it with a hand mixer. After about ten minutes, peaks will begin to form and your body butter will begin to look like whipped cream.

Dollop your body butter in a sterilized glass container with a lid and place it in a dry, dark location. Enjoy your antioxidant-rich body butter—especially wonderful for dry, chapped skin in the middle of winter.

Pina Colada Beach-Ready Coconut Oil Body Butter Recipe

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Shea butter
  • 1/3 cup jojoba oil
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. beeswax
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 10 drops coconut essential oils
  • 15 drops natural pineapple essential oils

Directions:

Begin by bringing the Shea butter, coconut oil, honey, and beeswax together in a glass bowl. To the side, bring a pot of water to a slow simmer on low heat. Place the glass bowl in the simmering water and allow the butter, oil, honey, and beeswax to melt together. Note: you can also utilize a double boiler in this instance. Once it’s melted and well assimilated, remove the glass bowl from the heat. Next, add the jojoba oil and stir well. Add the essential oil drops immediately after and mix.

Next, place the glass bowl in the refrigerator for thirty minutes. The mixture should begin to harden. Then, remove the mixture from the refrigerator and mix it with a hand mixer for about ten minutes. Soft peaks should begin to form, and the mixture should resemble whipped cream. Don’t eat it! Dollop the body butter into a sterilized, sealable container, and store it in a clean, dark location.
