Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup jojoba oil (or any liquid oil such as apricot kernel or sweet almond oil)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup beeswax pastilles (vegan alternative: substitute 1/8 cup candelilla wax)
  • 2 tablespoons shea butter
  • 1 teaspoon calendula-infused oil or vitamin E oil
  • 10 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 10 drops of frankincense essential oil
  • 10 drops of lemon essential oil

Instructions

  1. Combine the solids (coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter) in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water. As the bowl heats, the ingredients will start to melt. Stir occasionally as they melt to incorporate and make sure beeswax completely melts or it will feel grainy when it solidifies.
  2. When all ingredients are completely melted and mixed together, add oils and essential oils. Stir well to combine and pour into sterilized jars or tins. Cover with lid and store in a cool, dry place.

  1. Hi! In my search for these ingredients on Amazon, I stumbled upon tallow. I have a friend who sells homemade skin cream made from tallow. Would you have any suggestions for using tallow in this recipe? Thanks! -Jessica
    PS. I love all your products!

    • Hi Jessica! We are happy to hear that you love our products. Thank you for your support. I hear tallow is also great for the skin. I do remember seeing some recipes online for a tallow body butter that used tallow and the beeswax pastilles. I suggest playing around with it to see what works to get the consistency you like. Please do not forget to share the results/recipe here. I would love to know how it turns out and even try it. Happy mixing!

        • Hi, Pearl! Yes, you are correct. Tallow is a hard fatty substance made from rendered animal fat that is often used in making candles and soap.

  2. I’ve seen several body butter recipes very similar to your and I do want to make some. They all seem to call for a wax of some kind. Can it be made without wax, which I’m assuming that is to make it more “solid”? I don’t think it would be a problem if it isn’t solid. I’ve made lotion with just coconut oil and EO’s which can get quite “liquidy”.

    • Thanks for your question, Esther. Yes, there are DIY Body Butter online that do not call for wax. We highly recommend that you search for waxless body butter recipes for instruction. Good luck and we’d love to hear how it went for you!

  3. Where can you get the bees wax? How much quantity wise is the finished product?
    Also am wondering what it feels like on. Is it absorbed quickly? I live in a hot climate and can’t stand the feel of lotions that feel slimy/slick or sticky on!
    Thanks!

    • Hi Lisa, we appreciate your interest in this body butter recipe!

      Organixx does not sell bees wax. You may check out online stores or your local health food store to see if they carry them.

      We would also like to share more information about beeswax. Below is an excerpt from this article (https://organixx.com/diy-skin-care/):

      Beeswax- anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal. Helps product stay on skin longer and protects against pollution. Acts as a natural water-resistant barrier for skin and locks in hydration; gives products a creamy texture. Has emollient properties and helps to maintain smooth skin texture. Good for dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, damaged skin, stretch marks, and heals acne.

      We hope you find this helpful.

      We would love to hear how your own body butter turned out. Thank you and we wish you a lovely day!

  4. Hello Is there anyone on here from London? Id love to have somewhere recommended to me even if an online shop outside UK that does not charge extortionately for postage to be able to buy all these ingredients and more? Any ideas anyone?

  5. What alterations need to be made to make this more solid? Reduce coconut oil and substitute more Shea bitter? I’d like to be able to store it at room temperature instead of the refrigerator.
