Coconut Oil Body Butter Recipes with Essential Oils

My family loves making and using all things DIY, including body care items. Coconut oil and essential oils are favorites in my house and making body butter is loved by all my teen daughters. We enjoy passing on the recipes we discover and love to everyone so they can enjoy them as well. These DIY body butters are natural and can be customized to fit your own preferences. Toxic free and DIY is what I am all about.

I like to use the hand mixer with just one beater on it and I add my ingredients in a pint or quart jar depending on how much I am making. I fill the jar 3/4 full with solid coconut oil and I add the other ingredients on top and blend right inside the jar for about three minutes, whipping up the oil into a creamy body butter. Then I simply add another scoop of the virgin coconut oil if needed and mix again for a minute or two. When finished, I just screw the lid on and the only clean up is the one beater. You are mixing right in your storing container. The body butter stays good for about a year and does not need to be refrigerated but it can melt if it gets too warm.
