Homemade Whipped Body Scrub & Body Butter

Many of you have been asking me how I made my holiday body butters and body scrubs, so I finally had time to post them for you all to make at home! And I am so happy to hear how so many of you loved my gifts! 🙂

WHIPPED BODY BUTTER
what you need:
Electric mixer (to make it whipped) 
1/2 cup coconut oil (I get the triple filtered from Trader Joe’s because it has NO coconut scent to mess with your oils)
1/2 cup shea butter
1 tsp arrowroot powder (to help not be so greasy and absorb into the skin faster)
2 tsp sweet almond oil
1 tsp vitamin-E oil (to preserve up t0 6 months)
10 drops essential oil of your choice 

  1. Slowly melt Shea butter and coconut oil in microwave and mix together in a bowl. Add sweet almond oil and vitamin-E. Chill in refrigerator for 15-20 or until the top layer becomes a soft solid again.
  2. Add peppermint oil, and arrow root powder to the mix, use an electric mixer on low to start, then on med/high until mix is blended well and fluffy! (test the mix, if it feel too oily then add more arrow root powder, but if you add too much powder- it will leave a powdery feel on the skin! You will have to let it sit overnight to really see what the texture will turn out as!)
  3. Place in a cute jar, and hydrate up!

WHIPPED BODY SCRUB

What you need:
Electric Mixer (to make it whipped)

1/2 cup Sugar ( I get the organic raw cane to exfoliate better because crystals are little bigger)
1/2 cup coconut oil (I get the triple filtered from Trader Joe’s because it has NO coconut scent to mess with your oils)
1 tsp arrowroot powder
10 drops essential oil of your choice 
2 tsp sweet almond oil
1 tsp vitamin-E oil (to preserve up to 6 months)

  1. Mix together coconut oil, sugar, arrowroot, sweet almond oil, vitamin-E, and essential oils into a bowl. (Make sure coconut oil is not melted and is still a soft solid)
  2. Use electric mixer to blend together all ingredients. (Don’t mix too much or else the sugar will grind up too small! Test batch, if you feel like sugar is not ‘rough’ enough, add more and manually mix it in)
  3. Place in cute jar and keep it in your shower to scrub 3x a week!

Note- You all know me, so of course I used mostly all organic products. Some of the products are more expensive at stores, so if you plan to make bigger batches- I recommend buying in bulk on amazon! 🙂

A little about peppermint oil:
I decided to use peppermint oil, not only because it’s a wonderful holiday scent, but because of how many amazing health benefits it gives to the body! Just breathing peppermint stimulates the brains pleasure point by 50% and reduces anxiety by 50%! Peppermint is also a great oil to help fight away bacteria from body acne! If you are ever feeling nauseous (for my pregnant clients) peppermint oil is a great way to relieve nausea and stomach cramping! In the holistic world, they also use peppermint as a painkiller! So next time you experience these symptoms, try some tea, or diffusing this magical oil!

Making your own beauty product are such a healthier/safe way to treat your skin, I hope you enjoy and have fun doing it!
