  1. Hi Anna – I just wanted to let you know how much I love your Whipped Body Butter. As we get older our skin dries out and sometimes it actually hurts. Your Body Butter works wonders on my aging dried out skin. It really heals! Thus I feel better.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi Anne!
    Thanks for sharing this recipe!
    I am going to give this one a try for my superdry skin. How long can I store this??

    1. Hi Nelly, since this recipe does not use any water, it should be okay for about 6 months. Just be sure to store it in a cool place! It will melt on warm days during the summer or if its in the sun (still usable though… just doesn’t look as pretty). I think you’ll love it. Thanks for reading!

  3. Hi there! Lovely recipe! Is it possibe for me to replace the Avocado oil with Almond oil at the same measurement? Thank you.

    1. Hi Vandana, yes… I think that would definitely work, but I haven’t tried it to confirm. Let me know how it turns out!

  4. Hi! Just wanted to make a suggestion. Shea Butter does not have to be melted you can whip it right up with the other liquid oils. Also, to cut the greasy feeling down add corn starch, arrowroot starch or tapioca starch.

    1. Hi April.. just wondering how much starch would you add to this recipe?
      Thanks… about to try my first batch 🤞🤗🤔🥰

  5. Anna, I am fairly new to EO’s and to making my own products. I have found that I’ve gotten older (60’s) my skin reacts to almost everything that I have tried , “natural” or not ad even lotions and creams I’ve used for years. I was diagnosed with Sjogrens and have had recent outbreaks due to the stress! I am hoping that this natural recipe helps.

    1. Hi Bonnie, I experienced the same thing years ago – started reacting to everything, especially during my worst Hashimoto’s days. I bet, like me, you will have much better luck making your own products! Please let us know how it works out for you. 🙂

  6. Made this two or three times in the past with no issues. Today, it whipped up and then melted right back to almost a lotion consistency. Any thoughts to salvage my mixture or just use it like a lotion?

    1. Hi Gen, hmmm… interesting. You could always try melting it down back to a liquid and re-whipping it to see if it holds? If it does whip back up, then storing it in the fridge might help it stay in that whipped consistency.

  7. I made this but used olive oil instead of avocado oil. It came out great! I use it on my hands and eye area.
    It’s so moisturizing and doesn’t completely come off in one hand washing, making it ideal for use in the wintertime 🙂

  8. Hi I came across this face cream love that is easy to make but I don’t wish to heat it up can I still just whipped and leave it like that ?

    1. Hi Nancy, I have not tried making it without heating it first, but one of our readers, April, mentioned in a comment above that Shea butter does not need to be melted in order to be whipped, so it is always worth a try!
