Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter



  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.

Purity and quality count when it comes to essential oils. Every time you use an essential oil you are creating a direct pathway to transmit every ingredient in that oil into your body. Essential Oils from Organixx are among the highest quality oils available to consumers and are made with indigenously sourced plants retrieved from the world’s best sources.

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for the recipe, I’m going to replace the coconut oil/shea butter with cannabutter or oil and use it for muscle/nerve pain relief as I already have the essential oils I bought from you, which I love. My diffuser is on right now with grapefruit essential oil.
    I live in Canada ! Yeah !! or should I say Eh….. Have a great day. I am…

    • Hello all the way from Canada, Diane! We appreciate you sharing your own twist to this recipe, so thank you! Have a lovely and healthy day as well!

    • Diane: Have you considered cannabis infused with essential oils and butters other than the ones you want to omit for muscle pain. It is miraculous for pain.

  2. Can I use beeswax from a block instead of beeswax pastilles for the Ultra-hydrating body butter?

    • Thanks for your question, Karen. Please feel free to use you own beeswax from a block, while making sure to adjust the heat accordingly. Let us know how you liked the body butter!

        • Hello Lori, thank you for your question.

          The recipe for the Ultra-Hydrating Body Butter calls for 1/4 cup of beeswax pastilles. Since 1 cup of beeswax pastilles weighs about 140 grams, you may weigh out 35 grams of grated beeswax.

          We hope you can let us know how you are liking your DIY body butter. Wishing you a great weekend!

    • yes, just grate the block with a cheese grater first so the bees wax can melt easily, if you think you’ll make more of your own body care products you may want to pick one up at a second hand store dedicate it to grating beeswax.

    • Thanks for your question, Shirley! If you are located in a colder climate, this recipe will most probably be too thick for a pump container once it hardens. However, using a pump container can work if you are in a hotter climate, since the coconut oil in it will stay mostly liquid. We hope you enjoy using this body butter!

    • Hello Lisa, we are sorry to hear that! A lot of sources have suggested using sunflower seed, grape seed, and almond oil as great substitutes for coconut oil. We hope you find the right one for your skin!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

    • 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!

  7. 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?

  8. 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.
