What is the difference between body lotion and body butter?
Body lotion is much thinner than body butter. Body butter is very thick.
Just a small amount of body butter goes a very long way. You will be surprised how little you need to use and how long body butter lasts.
Let’s get started making WHIPPED BODY BUTTER!
It is very inexpensive to make and lasts awhile. Once you see how easy it is to make, you will wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Plus, it works so well and for just pennies compared to the expensive products at the store.
Ingredients for DIY BODY BUTTER RECIPE:
- ¼ Cup Shea Butter
- ¼ Cup Cocoa Butter
- ¼ Cup Coconut Oil
- ¼ Cup Joboba Oil
- 25-30 drops of Essential Oils (Optional)
How to make diy body butter:
- Add all the ingredients except the essential oils to a sauce pan.
- Heat on low until all the ingredients are completely melted and combined.
- Remove the pan off the heat and allow the oils to solidify either at room temperature or put it in the freezer to sped up the process. You’ll want it to be slightly a solid but not completely. When you touch the mixture your finger should leave an indentation.
- If you want to add the essential oils, you can add them at this point. You do not want to heat essential oils as it could cause chemical changes in the oils. I like to use Lavender Essential Oil or Peppermint Essential Oil.
- Then mix the ingredients with a hand mixer or you can use a stand mixer. You’ll want to mix it for at least 15 minutes. You’ll know it’s done because it’ll look like whip cream.
- Store in an air tight glass jar for use. Enjoy!

Beeswax helps the body butter hold up better in warm weather. If you plan to give body butter as a gift you might consider adding beeswax to the body butter.
