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!
