3 Ingredient Chocolate Whipped Body Butter


This body butter is magical.  Though it only has 3 ingredients, it pampers, comforts, and nourishes your skin without any lingering residue.  It’s rich and creamy yet light and fluffy, deeply penetrating for a baby soft experience.  Needless to say, this is the only body moisturizer I’ll use anymore.  At first glance, it looks like whipped frosting and the wafting scent of chocolate doesn’t lessen the temptation to lick it off the spoon.  Because it’s all natural with food grade ingredients, it’s definitely possible but not recommended {as it doesn’t really taste like much since it doesn’t have any sugar}.  However, if you’d like to make some chocolate with the cacao butter too, I have a recipe for homemade chocolate.  A little bit of this body butter goes a long way, a dab will do ya and your skin will literally drink it up.  Smeared on freshly shaven legs the night before, I always wake up to incredibly silky smooth skin the next day.  It’s like butter baby…literally.

Since my whipped body butter utilizes cacao butter as its base, it will naturally smell of chocolate but it can also serve as a great platform for essential oils.  I personally love halving each batch and using one for moisturizing purposes and the other to use as a massage butter with frankincense and lavender, which is just heavenly.  For the latter, I use 10-20 drops altogether for each batch.  Just make sure to obtain the best quality essential oil you can get your hands on as to not ruin your batch of body butter.

I hope you enjoy my recipe.  I love it so much that I’m actually spreading the love to my own mother and future mother in-law, Jan {who is like my second mother!}  I love you both so much!  I hope it will serve as a great addition for your own mama’s homemade beauty or spa basket too.  Happy Mother’s Day!
