Turmeric Whipped Body Butterhttps://www.brambleberry.com/in-the-studio/projects/body-care/turmeric-whipped-body-butter/PS000014.html
The star of this recipe is turmeric shea butter, which is a natural mix of moisturizing oils and turmeric root extract. Arrowroot powder is added to create a fluffy texture and so the butter doesn’t feel too greasy on the skin. The ginger essential oil blends wonderfully with the slightly spicy scent of the turmeric shea butter. The end result is a thick yet spreadable butter that is intensely hydrating.

Turmeric Body Butter Project
Handmade products don’t have to be complicated. This Turmeric Body Butter has just a few ingredients, but they’re all the right ones.
Three 8 oz. Bail Jars
16 oz. Turmeric Shea Butter
3 oz. Coconut Oil
3 mL Ginger Essential Oil
2 Tbsp. Arrowroot Powder
Place 16 ounces of turmeric shea butter into a large mixing bowl. Turn your mixer on medium and begin breaking up the butter. Continue to mix until it softens.
Add 3 ounces of melted coconut oil to the mixing bowl. Use a spatula to start mixing it in.
Turn the mixer on low and mix in the coconut oil. Gradually begin to increase the speed and mix for about 1 minute until the butter and coconut oil are combined.
Add 3 mL of ginger essential oil and 2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder. Use a spatula to gently fold in the powder. Then, use the mixer to whip the butter for about another minute to fully incorporate all the ingredients.
Use a spoon to transfer the butter into jars. Store this butter in a cool, dry place. If you live in a very hot climate, you may want to store the butter in the fridge to prevent melting. Enjoy!
