DIY Chocolate Body Butter

You know that I love homemade beauty products already. It’s pretty evident by such posts as my DIY Peppermint Bath Bombs, my Orange Coconut Sugar Scrub, and others. So today’s homemade body goody is this amazing chocolate body butter. Please don’t eat it! I know it smells amazing, but trust me, it’s better on the outside of your body than in!

Chocolate Body Butter

½ C. Shea butter
½ C. coconut oil
2-3 tbs. cocoa powder


1. Add the Coconut oil and the Shea butter to a small saucepan. Heat on low until melted, mixing well. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let set until cooled to room temperature.

2. Scoop the mixture into a bowl and set in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

3. Remove from the fridge and add the cocoa powder. Use a hand mixer to beat the ingredients until whipped (2-3 minutes).

4. Scoop the body butter into an airtight container, such as a mason jar and seal. Keep the body butter at room temperature for about 6 months. If you see any separation simply stir well.
