DIY Vanilla Mint Body Butter with Free Labels!

posted in:

Hi guys! I hope you’re having a great day so far. If not, I hope this maybe can lift your spirits a little bit. This is a super simple DIY that I put together during the holiday’s to give as gifts. This body butter was so well received/loved by everyone that I gave it to that I wanted to make sure you all could make this yourself if you wanted. It’s really simple and can easily be customized to fit the season/your skin needs. It also works great for growing bellies!

Stretch Mark Butter

This recipe utilizes Young Living essential oils, which is the brand that we use and love in our home. I can’t speak on how this will work with others. If you want to know more about why we started using essential oils and switched over to products that do not contain toxins, you can read about that HERE.

DIY Body Butter

DIY Body Butter


  • 1 1/2 Cups Shea butter (ivory color is preferred over yellow so that it's whiter in color)
  • 2/3 Cup Solid coconut oil
  • 1ish tsp Vitamin E oil or jojoba oil
  • 3 tsp Clear vanilla extract (clear is important so that it doesn't mess up the color)
  • 8 tbsp Arrowroot powder
  • 30-40 drops Young Living Peppermint essential oil
  • 12 4 oz. mason jars
  • 12 Avery 22817 round labels


  1. On the stove, melt down the shea butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil in a medium sauce pan until completely melted.

  2. Add the vanilla and the melted shea butter mixture to a medium sized bowl. Mix until combined.

  3. Place the bowl in the fridge for 1-2 hours. The mixture should be hardening but not completely solid. I suggest setting a timer to check it every 30 minutes.

  4. Add the mixture into a blender with a whisk attachment, add the arrowroot powder and peppermint drops.

  5. Blend for about 20 minutes until the mixture is white and fluffy.

  6. Add the body butter into a large plastic bag, cut the tip, and pipe the butter into each jar OR scoop the butter into each jar.

  7. Add a label to the top of each jar and enjoy or give!
