Whipped Shea & Avocado Body Butter

You know when you are so excited about something that you  just can’t sit still!? I felt like this yesterday when I checked my butter supplies. Not much left… what could I do to use them up? There is no way I am wasting even one bit! And then… ding-dong! Why don’t I mix these butters up and whip myself a nice body cream!

I am thinking how to describe the feeling… I felt like I was creating an explosion of skin care goodness! The cream making process was so enjoyable and seeing the butters becoming soft and fluffy was a very happy moment!

You can whip shea butter on its own and it already makes a lovely body cream without any additions, but for someone as addictive as me, additives are very important! I want things to be as lush and luxurious as possible!

Whipped Shea & Avocado Body Butter

25g Shea butter

25g avocado butter

25ml Kukui nut oil

25ml Shea oil

In a bowl, warm the butters slightly just to soften them. Measure carefully and add the oils. With a hand held whisk, beat the butter until soft and fluffy.

You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Gorgeous!

I use it everyday, it’s quite fatty, because of avocado butter and Shea oil, but I like it this way. It’s a good way to prepare your skin for spring! Happy 1st of March! Spring is here!

      • Thank you Mitchi, comments like yours make me do everything quicker, but I have to be patient and be sure about everything I do :D

  2. This sounds so luxurious! :) Glad you have Spring. Send it our way. We had snow the last two days. Not much, but it’s pretty cold out.

    Isn’t it fun to be so creative! Love this, Kristina!

    • I hope the snow has gone in Santa Fe and you have some sunshine now :) I love creating these little things and sharing them with my readers :) It makes me very happy :D

  3. can this be done with just avocado butter and almond oil as those are my favourites? so like 100g avocado and maybe 50ml almond as i think using to much almond will make it to greasy.
