2 Ingredient Body Butter Recipe

One of the easiest body butter recipes around. Creamy and smells great!

With summer just around the corner, I love having well hydrated legs. One of the ways I do that is by using home made body butters. Super easy to make. I recently tried a new recipe out that used less ingredients and I could not be happier with how it came out.

This body butter is a 2 ingredient recipe! I hope you enjoy.

Really simple body butter recipe, using only 2 ingredients!

2 Ingredient Body Butter Recipe



  1. Place your Shea Butter and Almond (or jojoba oil) into your mixing bowl. I use a kitchen aid mixer... but you can use any whisk style mixer. Once ingredients are in bowl. I then fill up my kitchen sink with some hot water. Place the bowl into the water so that it will briefly warm up the shea butter. Shea butter can be a bit stiff... by warming it up a tad like this, it softens it and makes the whipping process a little easier.
  2. Once soft (but not totally melted), you then place this in the mixer on low speed... once it mixes some, turn up the speed and whip on high for about 3 minutes. Whip it until it becomes a soft buttery texture.
  3. Stop mixer. Add in your Essential Oils if you want those in the butter... mix again for about 30 seconds... and then scoop out your butter into a containers of your liking.
  4. The container I used is a small tin container I got from Dollar Tree! These are a generous size and fit all the butter perfectly. I then store at room temperature in my bathroom and use as needed. Goes on really smoothe and leaves my skin glowing. Do be aware if you have never made a home made butter, any home made butter you make will be a little bit "oilier" than store lotions.... but I assure you, give it a moment to absorb and you will love it.
  5. Enjoy :)
