Whipped Body Butter

Whipped Body Butter

Amazing creamy Whipped Body Butter, is easy to make at home, silky soft shea butter, olive oil, grapeseed oil with lavender essential oil.

So I decided to share one of my recipes with my readers.

I made and sold them at Farmer’s markets, and stores years ago.

Since moving to Florida, I have been a full-time food blogger/caterer and I haven’t had the time to get back to making my skincare products for the market.

Whipped Body Butter used on the skin, leaves the skin feeling soft and supple, it is great for dry skin conditions and for those with very sensitive skin. 

The beauty is it is made from all-natural ingredients and doesn’t contain unpronounceable chemicals like the commercial body butter.

DIY Whipped Body Butter

Use daily on your face and body as a moisturizer, for dry skin relief, treat wrinkles, treat sunburn, stretch mark prevention during pregnancy, reduce blemishes and scarring.


  • Shea Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Lavender Essential Oil

To make body butter, I cut the shea butter into pieces and place into an electric mixer, I added melted coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and process until the body butter looks like whipped cream. I then add the essential oils and whip until the essential oil is fully incorporated.

Ingredients For Whipped Body Butter

Combine shea butter, coconut oil, grapeseed oil and lavender essential oil in an electric mixer and process until the body butter is soft and creamy and there aren’t any visible solid pieces. Melt shea butter and coconut oil using a double boiler if they are really hard, especially during the winter months.

    Hi thank you for this recipe! Can I make this using “creamy” Shea butter?

    Hi Michelle. I came across your blog last night afternoon searching for a whipped body butter that didn’t require cocoa butter. I made yours as directed but it didn’t come out looking “whipped “ like yours in the picture. The consistency is more of a lotion. It still feels soft on my skin but I was hoping for that whipped look. I’m here in LA and as you know the temperature is very warm. My coconut oil & Shea butter were already somewhat liquid when I started the instructions. I even put in the fridge to help it solidify some but after using mixer it still came out more of a lotion consistency. What did I do wrong? Please advise 🤷🏽‍♀️

      Rona, I’m happy you found my recipe. Your shea butter should be of a more solid texture, right away that is the problem. Find a better supplier for your shea butter. There is no way it should be a liquid consistency or look like lotion. I live in Florida and the batch I’m using now was made a year ago, my husband found it in a dresser drawer while he was about to make way for a new dresser drawer. The consistency is fluffy. just like whipped cream. I’ll leave a link for a good shea butter from Amazon.
      You can also double the shea butter and use less oil but the shea butter needs to be solid, to begin with, not hard but like the consistency of refrigerated butter.

    Just made this body butter! I love it but how do I store it? I’m afraid it will melt just sitting on my counter.

      That’s wonderful, Priscilla, I usually store mine on my counter but I have the AC running. You should be fine and not have a problem. Enjoy!
