We finally got the right consistency to make this creamy dreamy lemon whipped body butter. It only contains four ingredients; shea butter, coconut oil, lemon agrumato extra virgin olive, and lemon essential oil. All ingredients are beneficial and moisturizing for your skin. Raw shea butter has a stronger nutty odor than refined shea butter, therefore more lemon essential oil can be added if using raw shea butter. A mild extra virgin olive oil may be substituted but then add more lemon essential oil. Unlike other body butter recipes, the ingredients do not get melted and cooled to be whipped up later. It's entirely optional. You only need a high speed mixer so it can run for at least five minutes.
What you'll need:
3/4 cup organic raw or refined, naturally deodorized shea butter
1/2 cup cold pressed coconut oil
1/4 cup Lemon Agrumato extra virgin olive oil
Drops of lemon essential oil
High speed mixer
Add shea butter, coconut oil, lemon olive oil, and lemon essential oil to the bowl of a high speed mixer. Mix at the highest speed for 5 to 7 minutes. More lemon essential oil can be added according to how strong of a lemon smell you want. Be sure to mix it again for a few seconds. Place it in a glass container and keep at room temperature (about 70°) or cooler so it can stay whipped. Enjoy!
