Coconut Lime Body Butter


This is the yummiest smelling lotion ever. I’m addicted to it. Every time I slather this on it stirs up daydreams of lying on the sand at a tropical beach sipping something fruity from a coconut cup.

Plus it doesn’t hurt that I can make it in just minutes using only two ingredients that were already in my kitchen. The coconut lime scent is perfect for summer, or in the winter when you need the motivation to survive until summer (if you’ve ever lived through a Minnesnowta winter, you understand what I’m talking about.)

But it’s also very good for you – your skin will thank you!


– 1 cup of Coconut Oil
– 2-3 tablespoons lime juice
– and/or 5-15 drops of Lime Essential Oil


  1. Put coconut oil (solid, not melted) in a bowl and whip on high with an electric hand mixer until it has a light and airy consistency
  2. Add in lime and mix again
  3. Put mixture in a glass jar. Store in the fridge if using juice.
Keep in mind that not all coconut oil is made the same. If you are going to be putting it on your body, you will want the good stuff!
This should last you a couple weeks because you don’t need to use very much at one time. A little bit goes a long way!
