    Cookgirl's Note:

    Found on livingthenourishedlife.com. You will need a stand up mixer or electric mixer and an wire whisk attachment to prepare this. DO NOT use a food processor or blender. If your coconut oil has turned to liquid, place it in the refrigerator until solid again. I used Heritage Store 'Aura Glow Almond Oil' (which by the way contains lanolin) and tried almond extract for the fragrance.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup organic virgin coconut oil (still solid)
    • 1 teaspoon vitamin E (optional-read intro)
    • 3 drops , your favorite essential oils for fragrance (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients into the mixing bowl. Note: Do not melt the coconut oil first. It will only whip up if it is solid.
    2. 2
      Whip on high speed with a wire whisk for 6-7 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency.
    3. 3
      Spoon the whipped coconut oil body butter into a glass jar and cover tightly. Store at room temperature, or in the refrigerator if your house is so warm it melts the oil.
    4. 4
      Note: You may notice tiny beads or "pearls" in the mixture. These will disappear almost immediately upon touching your warm skin.

      I keep a jar of coconut oil and a homemade salt/sugar scrub by my sink. I liked the idea of whipping the vitamin E with the oil. I added a few drops of orange extract. I use the oil on my hands, feet, and the ends of my hair. It is a fantastic make-up remover. Thanks for sharing.

      I mean great in theory for a Newbie - any experienced educated DIY cosmetic creator will laugh at this and close the tab. Me being a Newbie was stoked that I had everything I needed to do this!! Yay!! Then after whipping it into this luxurious light and fluffy body butter it started to melt. I put it in the fridge, which made it so solid that it was IMPOSSIBLE to get out of the jar. I set it out on the counter to thaw and it lost its whipped look and melted back into a glob of gelatinous goo. Great smelling goo, goo I love to slather all over myself but this is a totally NON FUNCTIONAL recipe. Just letting everyone know. Check out swift craft monkeys blog about body butter to see how this really needs to be done properly. Also a great book is The Idiots Guide to Making Natural Beauty Products. BEST book I've been through, and I've been through 10
