DIY Whipped Body ButterOn January 11, 2013 by windycitymama86
Once it’s all melted, I added my secondary batch of oils. Roughly a tablespoon or 2.
Now comes the real fun. Whip it, baby! Whip it, right! Whip it, all night! You have to whip it a long time! Not all night long but at least 30 minutes of whipping. I stopped and started several times. I put some batches in the refrigerator and took breaks. You can shave off some whipping time by getting the oils to solidify a little bit too.
Whip until it’s the consistency you want. It was still pretty wet in this picture and more of a lotion consistency so I went back to whipping!
Be sure to use a bowl that comes up high on the side so it doesn’t end up all over your kitchen. Trust me. I know.
Yes, this is my perfect. It’s light and fluffy and looks like whipped cream. V thought it was ice cream and wanted to taste it. It does look good enough to eat and it smells divine with the cocoa butter.
After I had the proper consistency, I added fragrance oils. It’s unnecessary but I did it anyway to make them all a bit different. Same thing with the mica powder, I just wanted to change it up a bit and add some color.
