Luxurious Whipped Cacao Body Butter for Silky Skin

Makes: 2 cups



  1. Combine all ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan or water bath over low heat.
  2. As soon as the ingredients start to melt, remove from heat and transfer to the bowl of a stand-up mixer with a whisk attachment. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer.
  3. Put the bowl in the refrigerator for 40-50 minutes. You want the oils just to begin to solidify. Note the color: the mixture will change color from transparent to opaque and become lighter.
  4. Whip with the whisk attachment (or the hand mixer), scraping down the sides, for about 5 minutes, or until it resembles whipped cream.
  5. Transfer to small mason jars.
  6. Keep this cacao body butter at room temperature for about two months.

Recipe Notes

  • If the oils don't change consistency for a while once you start whisking, the mixture might not be cold enough. Place it in the refrigerator for a few more minutes and try again.
  • I use beeswax in the summer only. It helps the whipped body butter to keep its fluffy consistency longer.
  • I use refined beeswax because unrefined wax smells a little too strong for me. You can use your preferred beeswax.
