Whipped Coconut Body Butter

Turns out I'm not the only one who's sort of obsessed with coconut products these days. I love eating them in things like chocolate chip cookies, coconut bread, chocolate pie, & coconut chicken nuggets. That is pretty normal. But what I've really been getting into as of late is using coconut oil for skincare products.

I am so in-love with this recipe for homemade lip balm, which uses only coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin e oil & essential oils- all things you can find at your local coop (or often times cheaper on vitacost or amazon). I've made a couple batches of peppermint & lavender lip balms & they are probably going to save me thousands from "splurging" on all those $3 tubes of natural lip balm I'm so often suckered into buying.

This lastest recipe for whipped coconut butter is quite a treat as well. The ingredients again are minimal & it's extremely cost effective. If you're one who doesn't quite like a good, greasy body butter (coconut oil is, um, an oil), then you might have to re-think this project. I happen to looove that feeling (until I need to touch something), so it is near & dear to my heart.

Have you used coconut oil for any skincare products? Please share in the comments below!

Whipped Coconut Body Butter
Ingredients
1 cup coconut oil
1 tsp vitamin e oil
Few drops of essential oil for scent (optional)

Directions
Put everything into a KitchenAid mixer & mix on high for 6-7 minutes, using the wire whisk (make sure your coconut oil is in solid, not liquid form, or it will not whip). Spoon your whipped coconut oil into a glass jar with a lid. You may need to keep it in the fridge if your house is so warm that it becomes melty!
