1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup cocoa butter
1/2 cup Shea butter
1/2 cup sweet almond oil
1 tsp. vitamin E oil
5 – 10 drops peppermint essential oils
1. Place coconut oil, cocoa butter, and Shea butter in a medium sized pot over low heat. Stir to combine until it melts completely. Remove from heat.
2. Thoroughly mix in the sweet almond, vitamin E, and peppermint oils.
3. Chill in your refrigerator for an hour or two. You want the mixture to firm up without getting too hard.
4. Once chilled, use a stand mixer or hand mixer to mix until you get a decadent whipped consistency. Scoop into a jar or container. As long as you are using quality oils this homemade lotion should last for 6 – 12 months at room temperature. If your home is extra toasty it may melt but you can re-chill and whip it up again with no problem.
*If you are making this whipped body butter for little bodies you may want to choose a different oil like lavender which is more highly recommended for small children.
