This coconut whipped body butter recipe is a creamy, light moisturizer that smells amazing! Put it into jars and give them as gifts!
I love making gifts in a jar and with Mother’s Day on the way, I wanted to make a Mother’s Day gift in a jar. What mom couldn’t use a little pampering and with summer on the way we all want our legs and feet to feel soft.
I started with a coconut scented Bath and Body Works lotion but you can use any coconut scented lotion you prefer! By adding cocoa butter petroleum jelly and vitamin E cream the moisturizing factor went way up. A little of this coconut whipped body butter goes a long way! If you want to make a smaller batch simply use less of the ingredients.
I put all of the ingredients into a large stand mixer and whipped them together as if I were making frosting! You may need to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl several times to make sure everything gets incorporated.
Once all of the ingredients have been combined and the lotion looks light and airy, it is ready!

I was able to fill six 8 oz mason jars with the whipped body butter.
I put a strip of aqua striped washi tape across the top of the jars and attached the labels with glue spots. Now they are ready to give as gifts but be sure to keep a jar or two for yourself as well! This whipped body butter would also be perfect for a spa party or pamper party.
