Whipped Body Butter

I have so many problems with lotions and such (although there are a couple of Arbonne products that I dearly love). I decided to try my hand at some more natural alternatives and since my boyfriends hands are perpetually dry, I thought lotion would be a great place to start. I chose a lavender essential oil for mine, just because I loves me some lavender and I figured I was the one who had to smell him…. So, this made kind of a mess in the kitchen (and by kind of, I mean – a oily, waxy mess that was a pain to clean up – but it is sooooo worth it now. And I made an extra jar for me, so I get to smell my lavender scented hands all the time!

  • 1 cup water (room temperature)
  • 3 Tablespoons beeswax (I used a big old block that I shaved pieces off of, and I recommend using the already made into little pieces variety – just make sure it is pure and doesn’t have any added ingredients in it!)
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil – or olive or almond – whatever you have that you don’t react to!
  • 15 – 30 drops essential oil (I used 30+ but I am a scent junkie!!)

Place the coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler. OK – full disclosure, I do not have a double boiler – I put a glass mixing bowl in a pan of water and heated it up like that and it worked just dandy! Melt on a medium heat until liquid. Add essential oil (be careful, some cheaper oils use chemicals for extraction – I love Young Living or Mountain Rose). Put your water in a food processor with a large blade. With the food processor mixing the water slowly drizzle the melted mixture in. You have to go very slowly because you are emulsifying the mixture. Just keep drizzling it in until it is all in the food processor. Keep processing until the mixture is creamy. Stop and scrape down the sides several times and keep processing. When it is creamy, smooth and light, it is done. Jar is up and get ready for clean up with LOTS of hot water.
