    Store bought moisturizers are expensive and you truly never know what's all in them.  Nourish your skin something all natural, something you know you can trust! Learn how to easily make a whipped coconut oil lotion infused with minerals for a very low cost.

    Does your moisturizer make you nervous? Let me guess: it’s either filled with questionable ingredients or wildly expensive. Or both. Like you, I’ve been seeking a natural alternative to those bottles of creamy (but chemical-laden) conventional lotions. It hasn’t been easy. Coconut oil has always been a top contender, but it wasn’t until I tried a new coconut oil body butter recipe that I finally found my personal holy grail moisturizer.

    Want to try it out? Here’s how you whip coconut oil:

    Whipped Coconut Oil Body Butter Recipe

    I love that this coconut oil recipe only requires one (yes, one!) ingredient: coconut oil. Anything else is completely optional. It also only takes a few measly minutes, and you’ll have enough whipped body butter to last at least a month or two. In fact, if you get carried away, put some in an attractive jar and it makes a great gift! It feels sinfully luxurious as a moisturizer, and yet an entire jar of it costs less than $2 to make.

    What you need:

    • 1 cup coconut oil
    • 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil (optional)
    • a few drops of your favorite essential oils for fragrance

    What to do:

    1. Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl. Note: Do not melt the coconut oil first. It will only whip up if it’s solid.

    2. Mix on high speed with a wire whisk for 6-7 minutes or until whipped into a light, airy consistency.

    3. Spoon the whipped coconut oil body butter into a glass jar and cover tightly. Store at room temperature, or in the refrigerator if your house is so warm it melts the oil.

    Tip: An electric hand mixer will work, but my KitchenAid stand mixer did an amazing job and I was able to get other work done while it was mixing away. A blender or food processor will not work with this coconut oil recipe, because they tend to warm the oil too much and prevent it from whipping up.

    Note: Your whipped coconut oil should stay relatively soft, even at colder temperatures. If it’s really cold, it will become a little more solid, but not rock hard like it normally does. I noticed mine beaded into a froth of tiny coconut oil pearls that melt right into my skin. Love it!
