Happy Birthday!

Let’s celebrate another year around the sun with this nourishing and luxurious whipped body butter! Applying it to the face will give a gentle bronzed look.

Reminiscent of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, this is not only a great gift for yourself, but loved ones as well.

Yield: ~ 3 cups, or 6, 4-oz jars



  1. Prepare an ice bath by filling a large bowl with ice and fitting a smaller bowl inside. The inside bowl needs to be able to hold at least 4-5 cups of liquid.
  2. Using a double boiler or a pot of boiling water with a smaller pot fitted inside, melt cocoa butter and mango/shea butter over a low simmer.
  3. Add coconut oil and melt until completely liquid.
  4. Remove cocoa butter/coconut oil mixture from heat.
  5. Add cocoa powder/arrowroot into a small bowl and gradually add several tablespoons of jojoba/almond/olive oil. Mix thoroughly and then add to cocoa butter/coconut oil mixture along with remaining jojoba/almond/olive oil.
  6. Place mixture in chilled bowl (which should still be resting above the ice bowl) and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove mixture from ice bath and whip until stiff peaks form. If after a few minutes it does not seem to be thickening, return the bowl to the ice bath and whip there.
  8. Store in an airtight jar – amber or cobalt are best but a clear mason jar is fine if kept out of direct sunlight (which promotes oxidation).
