I whipped up some of this last week for my sister in law & myself. I was surprised at two things... how long it took to whip & how awesome it was on my body! It was really easy to make, but I thought I'd see it start to thicken after a couple minutes vs. the 10 + minutes it took as I had never made it before. I will be making it again though! We scented it with coconut & it smells heavenly!

Oooo that does look heavenly!  Are you able to share the recipe?

Ingredients:
2 generous tbsps of shea butter
2 generous tbsps of coccoa butter
1 tbsp. almond oil
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. grapeseed oil
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. fragrance of your choice

i tried doing this once and it was a disaster. id  love some tips!
don't give up & try again. I think putting the mixing bowl into an ice bath helps it set up faster.  Wink

Looks great! Did you fragrance it?
I sure did! Coconut!!! Still feeling the summer love here!

That looks fantastic. I love coconut smells. I've always wanted to try to make some for gifts. I did a body scrub once but wasn't a fan.
Can you use a stand mixer or is handheld better (since an ice bath helps it)?
Once its whipped does it stay that way?

I used a hand mixer & now that it's been a couple weeks I can say it hasn't separated, changed consistency, nor gone flat. It's still whipped into a frenzy! I hope folks try this! It's one of those crafts that has been on my 'to try' list forever & I'm so glad to have just done it!

That's awesome - I'm totally going to have to try it.  I've been looking for crafty things to make for people for Christmas, and this has made the list, 100%.

. . . In an effort to save money on gifts, I will spend money on myself, getting a hand mixer and bowl just to make this with.  That's all right, isn't it?  Wink

I found it on etsy... will have to look up the shop link. They were great & shipped quick!

I do hope y'all try making this for friends & family...and also to spoil yourselfs rotten! I'm almost out of this batch & need to make more. I'm thinking of going with a fall/winter scent this time.  Smiley

Have you tried making this in a larger batch at all. I am thinking of Christmas gifts as well, but I don't want to attempt a large batch and have it fall flat.

I'd only made a small batch & it went pretty quickly...within a few weeks to a couple of months, so I couldn't tell you for sure if it would fall flat after that. I can tell you that there was no funky odor, discoloration, nor separation of any kind for as long as I had it.

That looks awesome and probably smells delicious. I love coconut. Smiley
Thanks! You can scent it any way you'd like! I'm making soap this week & would like to make some manly bay rum scent for the fellas who don't want dry skin & also a blend of magnolia & sweet scents I'm calling 'sugar magnolia' ...MMMmmm!

Thanks for sharing the recipe.  I will make a point of trying this.

For any one who works with preservatives, which is the best type to use?

I generally use phenopip or optiphen, but this recipe doesn't need a preservative since there's no emulsion with water. An antioxidant like Vitamin E is all you need.

Thanks.  I guess what I was concerned about would be people still having damp hands when putting it on after their bath/shower..  Or it somehow otherwise coming into contact with water?  Is that being overly cautious?

Yeah I don't think that's an issue with body butter. Hmm, I know some people do add preservative to sugar scrubs in case water gets in it. Interesting question!

I've still only done a bit of research since the last post and learned that it's best applied when the body is still damp.  So that likely means damp fingers.  I would use a preservative, personally.  Especially if I made a big batch, or wanted to offer some as a gift to family/friends.

So I whipped up a batch of the body butter this afternoon.



I didn't use the exact formula posted but it was pretty close.  Thanks for sharing, I Sew Cute.
