Supply List for Whipped Body Butter:
6 tablespoons shea butter
6 tablespoons cocoa butter
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon sweet almond oil
1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
1/2 teaspoon lavender essential oil, optional
1 glass jar (or other airtight container)
Instructions to make Whipped Body Butter:
Add cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil into a double boiler. If you do not have one, substitute for a glass or metal bowl over a pan of boiling water.
Heat until melted, mixing with a whisk. Once melted add sweet almond oil and vitamin E oil to the mixture. Whisk well to combine. Cover and place mixture in refrigerator for one hour or until firm.
Using a hand mixer, whip until creamy and light. Add essential oil and mix again to blend. I used lavender essential oil for this batch of Whipped Body Butter. Spoon whipped body butter into glass jars. Body butter may seem a extra moist after whipping but will firm up after a few minutes.
Yields: 2 1/2 cups
