Whipped Body Butter

Whipped Body Butter

I finally got around to making some whipped body butter today. I've been wanting to for a while now, but just never found the time.

The above photo was just a quick one I took...so it's nothing special, but I wanted to show you kinda what it looked like. Course I got a little carried away filling the jars, so had to level them off with a knife, after I got the photo, so they aren't as pretty now, but...they should still work the same.

I've never used body butter before, so really have no idea if this is actually the way it is suppose to be...but it seems like it will work good, even if it isn't perfect. LOL It seems like it will be kind of like a soft version of my lotion bars.

I used Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Calendula infused Jojoba oil, e-oil and peppermint oil in them. It should be good to use just like lotion...and feel really good on feet, I always love something good to rub into my feet cause a good foot rub is always wonderful...even if I have to give it myself. LOL I decided to use those special oils, because they are good for your skin, from what I've read...and sometimes my skin needs all the help it can get. :)

Well we are in the middle of a snow storm here...actually right on the edge of a big one, so thankfully, if we are lucky, we shouldn't get more than 4-6 inches...unlike some who could get a foot or more. We had some ice here yesterday, and according to the Internet the roads were ice covered, so we didn't venture out like we had planned.

The snow is blowing around this time, so we really don't know how much we have gotten yet, but we are getting some drifts so I think it's got to be several inches. I decided to spend more time in the kitchen with the wood stove going, since my office is rather cold with that wind. LOL A good day to try something new like Whipped Body Butter! :)

Hopefully I can make some soap this week still too...I'd really like to get some more of that drying on my shelves out on the porch. That way I can have some more to give away come spring! :)

Hope everyone is staying warm (unless you are in the middle of your summer...then staying cool would be a much better idea LOL) and safe in this storm...a lot of the Midwest is being dumped on it appears, so stay warm out there!

Try to have a great week! :)

  1. It looks like it will feel very good on the skin. Really nice on your feet, like you say. I love the mint "feeling" on my skin.

  2. That just looks sinful - as in Buttercream frosting. LOL

    Hope y'all stay safe, warm and able to see in the dark!

  3. Looks like you did a good job! ... I'm usually to lazy (and not well informed enough) to do lotions/creams, so I don't know what it's supposed to look like... But it looks good! *lol*
