DIY - Whipped Body Butter: Easy, just 4 ingredients!

While I used a Blendtec for this, it couldn't be easier to make your own with a blender and hand mixer.
1 C. Pure Unrefined Shea Butter 1 C. Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil 1 Tbsp. Jojoba Oil 2 Tbsp. Vegetable Glycerin (optional)
Note: I used vegetable glycerine as our family's skin is notoriously dry in the winter. You can opt to leave this out.
Place all ingredients in the blender and process until smooth, as you want to break up the chunks of shea butter. You want a nice, smooth finished product.
From here, I stuck the whole blender jar into the freezer. If you can't do this, you can put the mixture into a mixing bowl and into the fridge or freezer to cool until solid.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer with the whisk attachment, whisk cooled mixture until it takes on a whipped consistency similar to whipped cream. Again I used my Blendtec on the whip setting. Essential oils if you choose.
Put the whipped butter into your chosen container with a lid. Store in a cool place as it will become liquid again if it gets too warm.
Enjoy and apply liberally after showering or whenever your skin is dry.
