I intensely rich, this Vanilla Whipped Body Butter is a treat for your skin. It's made by whipping melted cocoa butter, jojoba oil, and avocado butter until smooth. Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil adds a classic scent that pairs perfectly with cocoa butter.
Once this butter has cooled completely, it has a semi-firm texture. If you'd prefer it to be smoother and softer, you can decrease the amount of cocoa butter.

Vanilla Whipped Body Butter Project
This simple recipe creates a butter that's fluffy to the touch and melts on the skin. The combination of cocoa butter and Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil smells absolutely delicious.
Three 8 oz. Bail Jars
8 oz. Cocoa Butter Wafers
6 oz. Avocado Butter
1 oz. Jojoba Oil
4 mL Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil
1 oz. Arrowroot Powder
Place 8 ounces of cocoa butter wafers and 1 ounce of jojoba oil into a heat-safe container. Melt in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts. Be careful when removing the container - it may be quite hot.
Allow the butter mixture to cool to around 90° F.
Add 6 ounces of avocado butter to a large mixing bowl. Use a hand or stand mixer to whip the butter until completely smooth. Add about 1/4 of the melted cocoa butter and continue to whip for about 30 seconds.
Continue adding small amounts of the melted cocoa butter until it's gone, whipping between each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is thoroughly mixed.
Add 4 mL of Vanilla Select Fragrance Oil and mix thoroughly. Then, fold in 1 ounce of arrowroot powder with a spatula or spoon. Once it's mostly incorporated, use the hand or stand mixer to fully mix.
To achieve a fluffier texture (rather than a creamy texture) place the bowl in the fridge for about 30 minutes and allow the butter to cool to about 70-75° F. Remove from the fridge and whip again for about 30-60 seconds.
Spoon the butter into the bail jars, and enjoy! Store it in a dry, cool place. If you live in a very hot climate, you may want to store this butter in the fridge to prevent melting and to retain the fluffy texture.
