Homemade Whipped Body Butter

Yesterday I skipped on the beauty and fashion post I normally do so I hope I made up for it today.

Body butters can be made from different types of butters and oils. So for this recipe you will be love the nice texture and feeling once you smooth it over your body!
Here is what you will need:
1 and 1/3 Cups of Shea Butter

½ Cup of Olive Oil

1 tsp. Of Vitamin E Oil

½ ounce of fragrance oil*

Heat the Shea Butter up slowly in medium sized sauce pan until the Shea is in liquid form add in the olive oil. Let the mixture then sit and cool for about 30 to 40 minutes. Do not let it set fully back up though. At this point you are going to add in the Vitamin E and the Fragrance Oil.

You will now want to use a stick blender to whip the mixture until its very light in texture. It will give off a "mousse" like consistency. Make sure you have blended your fragrance oil and vitamin E oil in well. When selecting your fragrance oil choose something you will like as this whipped body butter will be an all over body delight.

When you have reached the desired consistency you can spoon your finished product into some kind of container with a lid. Do not over pack the whipped body butter or it will no longer have the light and airy look of being whipped. ENJOY!
