I love body butter! It’s meltable, spreadable, and can be really wonderful for soothing skin.
I use it after shaving, in the winter when my skin gets dry, and I love to make custom body butters as gifts!
Body Butter is made by combing butters (Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, etc) and oils (Olive, jojoba, sweet almond, etc.) and blending or whipping to the right consistency. Quite often body butters will melt at temperatures about 75 degrees. Hence the name, “body butter.”
I prefer body butters made with a base of coconut oil and cocoa butter. I feel like they have the best moisturizing properties. If DIY isn’t your thing, you can always purchase some of my yummy Cocoa-Loco Body Butter in the “shop” section of this website.
When making your own body butter, it is important to have a good recipe. Too much or too little of any ingredient can mean that your body butter will be too soft or too hard. I find that sometimes I need to tweak a recipe in order to get the consistency of my body butter just right. However, when you get just the right mix of ingredients, you’ll be in love!
Okay, without further ado, on to the recipes.
After scouring through Pinterest, I’ve researched some of the top body butters. Here is a list of my all time favorite recipes. (All original credit goes to the authors on whose blogs these recipes are found).

The brands of essential oils I used to remake these recipes were: Now Foods, Simply Earth Essential Oils, and Plant Therapy Essential Oils. For the most effective blends, make sure that you are using quality, therapeutic grade essential oils.
