Adding in vitamin E

Step Nine: Whisk together for another 10-20 minutes. The longer you whisk the fluffier the butter.

The Final Whipped Butter

 Step Ten: Scoop into jars.

Putting into jars

This takes a bit of time and patience. Use a smaller stainless steel spoon and move the butter into the jar. Tap jar on counter to get butter to fill container. Keep putting butter in and tapping on counter until butter comes to the ‘lip’ of the jar. Not the very top. It is perhaps 1/4 inch or so away from top.  You can smooth top with tip of spoon.

 

Step Eleven:  Label and date.  The body butter should be good for up to 6 months. Keep cool (not in refrigerator) and use daily!

  1. I’m really interested in making this recipe.

    do you know where I can purchase carrot infused oil or could I substitute another oil instead?

    as for the e/o… are you suggesting to use 25 drops carrot seed, 36 Lavendin, and 15 Cape chamomile? I just wanted to be clear?

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi, this recipe looks wonderful. It is thick, full of moisture and anti-oxidents, which is important. Can any other essential oil be substituted for the Cape Camomile? I would like to make this, but I do not have Cape Camomile. Thank you very much. Tamara

    • Hi Tamara, Yes, you can always use Roman chamomile or German chamomile. Or even lavender. Thanks for asking!
