DIY Whipped Coconut Oil Body Butter | Moisturizer, Eye Makeup Remover, & So Much More

Every which way I turn lately, I’m hearing about the amazing benefits of using coconut oil as a beauty treatment. From beneficial antioxidants, immune support, and metabolism boosting qualities when ingested, to toothpaste, body scrub, and anti-aging component when applied topically, coconut oil seems to be the cure-all health and beauty secret of the moment. If you don’t believe me, check out this amazing guide: Coconut Oil Uses for Beauty and Health (with Infographic!)

And like any other beauty products, I can’t wait to try this one. Especially since it’s natural, and affordable. But what to use? I could just use it directly from the container, but why not make it a little more luxurious? Making Today Beautiful has and “Everything Coconut Series” and a pretty DIY tutorial for whipped coconut oil as well as a quick review and how-to use it as an eye makeup remover. Follow the steps below to make your own and let me know if you already use it and what you love about it!

    What You'll Need {to make your own}

    *1 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil

    * 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil (optional)

    * A few drops of your favorite essential oils for fragrance (also optional) She used lavender oil. I would use vanilla.

    * A glass jar with a tight lid

    * An electric hand mixer ( a blender or food processor WON'T work because it warms the coconut oil up too much so that it won't whip!)

    1. Add the coconut oil and your other {optional} ingredients into a mixing bowl. The coconut oil should be solid, so don't melt it first!

     

    2. Mix on high speed using a wire whisk for 6-7 minutes or until it looks like fluffy whipped cream.

     

    3. Spoon out the whipped coconut oil body butter into a glass jar and make sure the lid is covered tightly. You can store it at room temperature or if your house is a little on the warm side, put it in the fridge so the coconut oil doesn't melt.

    E. Ann says that coconut oil as an eye makeup remover not only works wonders at removing makeup quickly and smoothly without much effort, but that it nourishes the delicate area around your eyes as well. She suggests using moistened makeup remover wipes or cotton balls dampened with water then dipped into the coconut oil and apply directly to your eyelids.

    If your coconut oil is under 76 degrees it will be a solid, says E. Ann, {giver or take} but if it is over 76, it will be liquid.  She prefers the coconut oil to be nice and firm so she can just pull out a chunk of it, apply it and it will melt against her skin while removing the makeup.

    Everything comes off so smoothly and without much effort.  She says the skin around her eyes is healthy and dewy the next morning. And unlike olive oil, coconut oil is not overly oily. It doesn't feel like a ton of grease on your face. It actually absorbs into the skin.
