Step 4: Add 10 pumps of Organic Body Oil.

Step 5: Turn on to medium-high for 5 minutes until your mixture is super smooth and creamy.

Step 6: For an extra smooth body butter, remove mixing bowl and use an immersion blender to mix for an additional 2-3 minutes.

How to Store Your Homemade Body Butter

Our recipe yields around 11oz of body butter so we love to store it in these 12oz rustic-chic jars.

For best results, keep it in the fridge. Each batch lasts for up to 30 days.

Because this recipe is made from products that contain naturally-derived ingredients, you may need to give it a quick stir if it begins to separate.         

Inside the Ingredients

This easy-to-make recipe has all of these amazing plant-powered moisturizers:

Shea Butter is in our Organic All-Purpose Balm and is a part of the unique moisture blend in our Gently Nourishing Face + Body Lotion.

Coconut Oil works together with organic sunflower and olive oils to help relieve extra-dry and sensitive skin in our Organic Body Oil.

Jojoba Oil one of our all-time favorite moisturizing ingredients — is in all three products in this homemade body butter.

Beeswax aka Cera Alba helps create a soft, silky texture in each product.
