Homemade Christmas Gifts: Body Butter

I'm not sure where I saw this recipe first.  I found a few variations online but it was so easy I just made it from memory.

I put the last of my coconut oil into a large bowl and added a little bit of vanilla extract and some peppermint essential oil.  Using a hand mixture with the whisk attachment, I mixed this for about 10 minutes.  Six tins of body butter will be used for gifts.  I am giving the jar to my sister since she crocheted 6 chap stick holders for me.  I had a little of the body butter left over for my self.  But not near as much as I had wanted so I need to buy some more coconut oil to make another batch.


  1. Do you know how much of each ingredient you used?

    1. No, sorry. Didnt bother to measure the ingredients. I just used what was left of the coconut oil and added a little of each of the vanilla and peppermint oil. I just went by scent. Didn't want it to be too strong. I really didn't think I'd have enough to use this for gifts. But it turned out to make a decent amount. If I remember I'll try to find an actual recipe to link to.
