How To Make Whipped Shea Butter


Homemade whipped shea butter is great to use in cooler weather to help with dry skin. It smells great and has only 3 clean ingredients - shea butter, extra virgin olive oil, and the essential oils of your choice. 


Units Scale
  • 8 oz raw unrefined shea butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 30 drops essential oil, divide if making two different scents



  1. In a stand mixer or food processor add in the raw shea butter, and olive oil. Mix for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until the shea butter has a smooth, light and airy consistency.
  2. Mix in 30 drops of the essential oil of your choice. Store in a plastic container or mason jar in a cool area. Enjoy!


If making two different scents:


  1. Add 15 - 20 drops of peppermint essential oil to half of the body butter. Mix and transfer to a plastic container or mason jar.
  2. For the second one, add 10 - 15 drops of bergamot oil or your favorite essential oil. Mix and transfer to a plastic container or mason jar.
  3. Store your body butters in a cool area. Enjoy!


Shea body butter can last for several months.
