Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 500 g


  • Double Boiler (jug or bowl over simmering water)
  • Measuring cups or jug
  • Spoon
  • Jar or airtight container to store


Essential Oils

  • 30 drops preferred essential oils see notes


  • Fill a large saucepan with 3-5 cm of water and bring to a boil
  • Put shea butter, coconut butter, coconut oil and fractionated coconut butter in bowl or glass jar
  • Once boiling, add bowl or glass jar to the centre of the saucepan to melt and combine ingredients
  • Stir every few minutes until the ingredients are melted and combined (10–15 minutes)​  Tip: Use an icy-pole stick to stir for easy cleanup.
  • Once everything is melted, remove from heat and let sit for 5–10 minutes before adding your  preferred essential oils.
  • Once essential oils are added, let it rest in a cool place (such as the refrigerator) until it has set (it will turn opaque in colour and no longer be transparent)
  • Once chilled, use a stand or hand mixer to whip. Start on low and slowly turn the speed higher until the lotion becomes light and fluffy (around 3–5 minutes)


Store the mixture in a glass jar and keep it in a cool place. If needed you can re-fluff the body butter by whipping it back up to the desired consistency
Recommended essential oils:
Try using the following oils (either on their own, or combined) for their skin loving properties:
  • Frankincence
  • Geranium
  • Lavender
  • Ylang Ylang
  • doTERRA's Yarrow | Pom
  • Tea Tree
Just for the smell of it:
Use whatever scents you are drawn to.  Some of my favourites are:
  • Spearmint
  • Wild Orange
  • doTERRA's Citrus Bliss blend
  • doTERRA's Elevation blend
  • Aborvitae (great if men are using too - it's very earthy)
*Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity so doTERRA doesn't recommend using them if you plan on being in direct sunlight after topical application.
