If you’re into DIY gifts for Christmas, this post is for you! I’m typically not a huge DIY’er by any means (I’m horrible at crafting and doing just about anything DIY) but when I heard about this whipped body butter recipe, I knew I had to make it for some Christmas gifts this year!

I LOVE body butters especially in the winter time because I get extremely dry skin. It’s like as soon as my skin gets any lotion touching it, it soaks it all up like a sponge. Does that sound kinda gross? Anyway, so last year I discovered that coconut oil was going to be my saving grace come winter time so when I saw that this recipe was basically whipped coconut oil and shea butter, a chorus of angels started to sing.

I added my own favorite essential oil, lavender, in there because I shower at night and it’s the perfect lotion to slather on before bed time. Lavender helps calm you down and is very soothing so it’s perfect for bed time :) you’ve gotta make this!

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil in solid form
  • 1/2 cup organic raw shea butter
  • 15-20 drops lavender essential oil
  1. Place coconut oil and shea butter into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the blade attachment. Turn the stand mixer on to low and hold down the stand mixer in case it jumps :) everything should start breaking up soon. Whip the coconut oil and shea butter until it’s all broken up. You’ll still have tiny pieces of shea butter left but that’s ok.
  2. Switch to the whisk attachment and set the speed to high and let it whip for 5 minutes. The longer you whip it, the fluffier it gets.
  3. Add the essential oil, whip again to incorporate.
  4. Fill an 8-ounce glass container with the body butter.
  5. Label and gift!
