Tips for Making This Whipped Body Butter Recipe:
- Because coconut oil becomes liquid between at temperatures above about 75F. So, if your home stays above 75 degrees, it may soften and need to be kept in the refrigerator. But, it will stay whipped at a temperature lower than that.
- This recipe doubles well.
- Essential oils are completely optional in this recipe and it makes a great body butter without them.
Essential Oil Suggestions:
Using essential oils is completely optional and many times, I do not add them.
Any essential oils may be used but here are a few suggestions - the sky is the limit!
- Peppermint - invigorating
- Lavender - calming
- Citrus flavors - uplifting

Not Into DIY or Making Your Own Whipped Body Butter?
Don't worry if you are not really into making your own DIY products because there is still a safe skincare and cosmetic option for you.
It is important to remember that just because products say "organic" does not mean they are safe.
Many have unnecessary ingredients, chemicals that are harmful and even hide behind the word "fragrance" so they can add unhealthy ingredients.
Since your skin is the largest organ of your body, and what is put on your skin can get into your blood stream quicker than the food you eat, "safe" is a keyword in skincare and cosmetics!
It is very important to use only safe, non-toxic, chemical free products on your skin.
The Body Butter in Citrus Momosa from Beautycounter is another must-have for those with dry skin. It contains shea butter and mongongo oil to hydrate and nourish, plus organic sunflower oil, aloe, and chamomile to soothe and smooth. This Body Butter is thick, rich and melts into skin being absorbed without leaving you feeling greasy.
The Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary Beautycounter is another effective product that leaves your skin soft and moisturized.
It is a blend of 13 botanical oils that absorb instantly and leaves your skin feeling silky soft. The scent is wonderfully invigorating yet subtle and has hints of grapefruit, sweet orange, and rosemary.
