This whipped body butter recipe is one of my favorites, and is perfect for autumn, thanks to the wonderful added pumpkin pie fragrance oil. Your skin will feel fresh and smooth when you use this body butter after your daily shower. Our skin needs nourishment all year round, but more so during the colder months. As we approach the cold fall and winter seasons, I wanted to share my favorite pumpkin pie whipped body butter recipe with you to ensure you have healthy, smooth, and soft skin.
How often should I use body butter?
You can use body butter daily or whenever you want to soften up your skin. The shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and olive oil blend to create a magical recipe that soothes itchy, dry skin. If you have oily skin or sensitive skin, you may opt to use my whipped body butter once a week for those dry areas on your body. If you’re uncertain what your skin type is, try this whipped body butter recipe once per week. If your skin isn’t hydrated enough, increase it slowly until you found the right frequency for your skin type.
Can you whip body butter in a blender?
Yes, you can whip body butter in a blender. You’ll notice in my instructions below that I use a mixer to make sure my body butter ingredients are well-mixed. This helps your body butter become the proper texture for a whipped body butter that smells like pumpkin pie. The texture of this body butter will be blended to a thin enough texture to be used as a lotion for maximum skin care.
Are body butters better than lotions?
This whipped body butter is heavier than a lotion and feels more hydrating. While you can typically use body butter on your face, most people use this super hydrating lotion on the rougher patches of dry skin such as their elbows and knees.
