  • 30 g shea butter (room temperature)
  • 30 g cocoa butter (room temperature)
  • 20 g coconut oil
  • 20 g almond oil
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa powder (see notes)


  1. Combine butters, oils and cocoa powder in a medium bowl. All ingredients should be room temperature to blend evenly, if they are too cold, your butter may turn out lumpy.

  2. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer slowly begin mixing together the butters and oils. Increase the speed as you are mixing and whip until everything is well combined and creamy.

  3. Using a spoon or spatula, transfer the body butter into a container or jar. Store airtight and use as desired.


The cocoa powder has a slightly bronzing effect. Use more or less depending on how strong you want the effect to be or leave it out altogether.

Avoid getting water into the butter and it should last up to 6 months. If you see any signs of mold or spoilage discard it.
