Citrus Body Butter

This recipe from Happy Mothering incorporates coconut oil with citrus essential oils and zest to leave your skin soft and smelling fresh.



  • Mixing bowl
  • Fork
  • Blender
  • Glass jar with lid


Scoop the coconut oil into a bowl. It should be soft, but not melted. Stir the softened coconut oil with a fork to make sure all lumps are dissolved. Add the zest from all three fruits: orange, lemon and lime. Add the lemon and orange essential oils and stir to make sure all of the essential oils and fruit zest is thoroughly mixed into the coconut oil. 

Place the mixture in the refrigerator to solidify a little bit. You know that it is hard enough when you can still make an indention with your finger in the body butter. Spoon the mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer or into a good blender. Whip until it's creamy and fluffy. When it reaches the consistency that you want, spoon it out and put it in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

"I recently researched the best treatment for dry skin and scalp...I then came across some helpful info on the benefits of Jojoba oil and decided to look for an organic brand. Your oil is truly wonderful. I now use it exclusively for skin and scalp, only adding frankincense essential oil for its calming effects. This combo is exceptional. I'm very glad I found Cliganic."
