Homemade Body Butter Bar

by Angela (Hampshire)

I’ve been making my own homemade skin creams and lotions now for about five years and my skin has never felt so good. I honestly don’t think that I could go back to using the processed store rubbish any more.

I used to suffer with dry itchy skin and it always looked so dull, no matter what I used or how much I paid it still looked dull. And now I’ve had to get used to people commenting on how good my skin looks (what a drag eh!)

When you first start making skin creams and lotions it does cost a little more to start with, but once your ingredients begin to grow they work out at a fraction of the cost of store bought ones and the rewards are so much greater.

I’ve recently been making a homemade body butter bar that seems to be going down well with everyone who’s tried it, and it’s a good place to start if you think you would like to have a go at making your own body creams. So here go’s and best of luck.

Homemade Body Butter Bar Ingredients

  • 3 oz – Bees Wax
  • 3 oz – Cocoa Butter
  • 3 oz – Shea Butter
  • 3 oz – Jojoba or any other liquid oil such as olive oil


  1. First you need to melt all your solid ingredients. You can do this by gently heating in the microwave or on the stove top.
  2. Once it’s all melted you can stir in the liquid oil, if you want to you can also add a little fragrance or essential oil to make some really nice perfumed bars. Although the cocoa butter and the bees wax does have lovely natural scent of its own, so it’s not essential.
  3. Pour the melted oils into molds (I use soap or flexi cup cake molds) then allow to cool and harden.
  4. All you need to do now is gently remove the harden bars from their molds and your home made solid body butter bars are now ready for use.

I noticed you microwave your ingredients I think it may take all the good stuff out of your shea butter, just thought you may like to know, heating with a double bowl of hot water is probably better, but what do I know, have a great day and have fun!

Very nice
