DIY Chocolate Mint Body Butter

This rich DIY body butter smells like a decadent mint chocolate treat! Cocoa butter is a natural moisturizer that’s safe for all skin types, and peppermint oil is naturally uplifting, and invigorating.

Here’s how to make it:



  1. Warm cocoa butter in a double boiler on the stove until softened. When softened remove from heat, add jojoba oil, and let cool in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove from freezer, add vanilla oil and peppermint oil, and whip on high using a hand mixer or standing mixer for 5-10 minutes (or until light and fluffy).
  3. Store in a sealable container.

    Hi! I would like to make a few of these DIY’s as Christmas presents…if I make them and seal them in their containers…how long before they go bad? Can I make them a while before Christmas or should it be just a few days before?

      Hi There! It should last for approximately 6 months from when you make it, so if you make it a while before Christmas your recipients will still have a good few months of use out of them! The natural oils in the moisturizers will cause the butter to soften if it’s kept in a warmer environment, but it’s still fine to use and you can firm it up again by putting it in a cooler spot.

      I hope that helps! 🙂
