White Chocolate & Mint Body Butter Recipe

This whipped body butter recipe takes moisturizing to the next level! Not only is it 100% natural, but you will also be stunned by how simple it is to make. This fall I’ll be whipping up another big batch for gift giving; packaging it up in cute little mason jars and custom name tags will be a big hit.

Due to being heavier than, perhaps, your favorite lightweight daywear lotion, I would recommend using this body butter at night. Perhaps after bathing at the end of a long day, allowing it to do its moisturizing magic while you’re resting. I can’t think of a better way to wrap up my day than to fall asleep to the aroma of a decadent holiday dessert.

  1. Combine the coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter in a medium pot over a low heat until completely melted.
  2. Remove from the heat and thoroughly mix in the sweet almond oil, vitamin E oil, and peppermint essential oil.
  3. Chill mixture in the refrigerator until the mixture becomes firm, but not hard. This could take 2-4 hours.
  4. Use a mixer to whip the ingredients into a light and fluffy consistency, creating stiff peaks.
  5. Transfer the body butter into a sterile, airtight glass jar container. Store in a dark place at room temperature for 6-12 months.

TIP: To add an extra artisan touch, sprinkle a pinch of cocoa powder along the top of your jarred body butter. Hailed as a natural skin brightening ingredient, Cocoa contains flavonols, polyphenol and caffeine which are good for your skin!

*Peppermint essential oil can be irritating to sensitive skin. I have sensitive skin and figure out I’m A-OK if I wash it off with warm water and soap 12 hours after application.
