Now let's do some DIY Mint Cocoa Whipped Body Butter for softer skin!

DIY Mint Cocoa Whipped Body Butter with Coconut Oil


  • • ½ cup cocoa butter
  • • ½ cup coconut oil
  • • 20 – 40 drops peppermint essential oil (up to you depending on how strong you like it)


  1. Add coconut oil and cocoa butter to your mixing bowl.
  2. You actually want the cocoa butter in a solid state for it to whip up nicely so I used a butter knife to get my cocoa butter into the mixing bowl.
  3. Sprinkle 20-40 drops of Peppermint Essential oil into the mixing bowl
  4. Mix it up. This works best if you have a stand mixer however a hand mixer will work as well, just a little more work. Mix on high for 1-2 minutes and then stop to scrape the sides of the bowl. Continue mixing in 1-2 minutes intervals until you have mixed for about 8-10 minutes and it’s nice and whipped.
  5. If you like a firmer texture you can add 1-2 teaspoons of beeswax.

I love this body butter because it is easy to make, it smells divine and it has a cooling effect on the skin. One of the best parts is that you use all natural ingredients, no chemicals, no nasty stuff! You can make it to pamper yourself, give as a gift any time of the year. Just use some cute and pretty jars and it will make as a wonderful addition as a gift for the holidays, birthdays, bridal showers and so much more!

I like to make a big batch at once especially this time of the year and get them all ready for the holidays. The only downside is that sometimes it makes me hungry because between the peppermint, coconut oil and cocoa butter it just smells yummy 🙂

  1. These pictures are killing me. This looks absolutely delicious, and it really does look like whip cream in these shots. I need to put the idea of dessert out of my mind, LOL. I would be interested in trying this body butter especially on my legs. I am sure it smells heavenly too..

  2. This is the year I'm going to get more into essential oils. I've dabbled in a few but just purchasing some and winning a few samples, but I have been reading more about the great benefits, without any chemicals, so I'm hooked. I do love coconut oil but have not used it on the outside yet, but that will change. Love this recipe.

  3. Wow I happen to have all of these ingredients, actually for over a year, and have been wondering what I can do with them. I'd love to try this!

  4. You also can buy Coconut Oil at Trader Joe's. Not sure if you can buy different sizes there. I love body butters, so thank you for this recipe. I will try this, and maybe share some for Christmas.

  5. I love this. Body butter can be so expensive. I had just about everything needed on hand and it's easy to make. It kind of made me hungry too, it smells so good.

  6. I think I will have to find a way to make this a mask.No one seems to sell hydrating face or hair masks anymore.It is real annoying to search and never find these products!

  7. My teen daughter said she would like to make DIY beauty products for Christmas gifts this year. I'll have to show her this idea. I bet it smells heavenly!

  8. Lol, it looks good enough to eat! Seriously, I love trying things like this. Often, they work better than expensive store-bought products.

  9. Oh my gosh! This whipped body butter looks SO luxurious! This would make a great and easy gift to make for friends & families for the holidays! I love any kind of body butter, so this is definitely on my "must make" list! Thanks for sharing!

  10. This sounds so good and likely smells so good I would want to taste it. I actually would have to keep it capped well or the dog would eat it.

  11. I really love this idea and am thinking of making some to try and if I love it then I plan on making some < I don't have coconut butter , would it make a difference if I added mango butter because thats whats on hand lol and if so would it make a huge difference or not..

    • Hi Dorothy,

      You mean mango butter instead of cocoa butter (not coconut butter, we've got coconut oil and cocoa butter in this one). I see no reason you can't use mango butter instead of cocoa butter I think that would be divine, I may have to try it myself next 🙂

  12. VERY, very nice! I'm going to make these, put them in fancy jars, maybe tied with a little ribbon, etc, and use them for Christmas gifts. There's nothing like a freshly made beauty product, MINUS all the chemicals we don't need! And, thank you for the links to the vendors!

    • You are welcome Sandy! I can't say enough good things about Spark Naturals essential oils they're my favorite top quality essential oil company!

  13. I love body butter. I had no idea that it's so easy to make. This sounds good enough to eat, and looking at the photo, it looks incredibly silky. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Wow this looks good enough to eat, lol! I would have to keep it away from the kids. I love body butter and this one sounds amazing! I have never made my own before though, can't wait to try it!

  15. Wow, this DIY Mint Cocoa Whipped body butter looks good enough to eat. I cannot wait to give this a try. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  16. I love using Peppermint Essential Oil. This seems wonderful to try and I am sure the scent is terrific and great for your skin.
