DIY Body Butter

It can be a luxurious treat to walk in to your favorite bath shop and pick up a few of your favorite products, but sometimes it doesn’t always work for our budgets. It leaves you wondering if there is a better way to save money but still use the products that you love. Well, it might surprise you but most products you buy at  bath and body stores can be recreated at home. One of the big products you can DIY is body butter! Not only is it simple to recreate, it will cost you a lot less to make it at home. Check out the recipe and instructions below and start making your own DIY body butter:

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 Cup of Shea Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Of Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Cup of Olive Oil (Or any other natural oil you prefer)
  • Essential Oils Of Your Choice (Omit if you would like a unscented body butter)
  • Mixer


  1. Start by melting together the shea butter and coconut oil. The best method for melting these ingredients will be to use a double boiler on the stove.
  2. Once melted remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes minimum.
  3. At this point mix in olive oil and any essential oils you would like to add.
  4. Continue to let mixture cool and solidify partially.
  5. Once it has started to take shape,  pour mixture into mixer and mix until consistency is soft and butter like.
  6. Package in your favorite jar or container and lather on skin freely!
