“Found on livingthenourishedlife.com. You will need a stand up mixer or electric mixer and an wire whisk attachment to prepare this. DO NOT use a food processor or blender. If your coconut oil has turned to liquid, place it in the refrigerator until solid again. I used Heritage Store 'Aura Glow Almond Oil' (which by the way contains lanolin) and tried almond extract for the fragrance.”
READY IN:
10mins
YIELD:
1 cups
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup organic virgin coconut oil (still solid)
  • 1 teaspoon vitamin E (optional-read intro)
  • 3 drops , your favorite essential oils for fragrance (optional)

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into the mixing bowl. Note: Do not melt the coconut oil first. It will only whip up if it is solid.
  2. Whip on high speed with a wire whisk for 6-7 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency.
  3. Spoon the whipped coconut oil body butter into a glass jar and cover tightly. Store at room temperature, or in the refrigerator if your house is so warm it melts the oil.
  4. Note: You may notice tiny beads or "pearls" in the mixture. These will disappear almost immediately upon touching your warm skin.
