DIY Whipped Body Butter
  • 1½ cups rendered beef tallow
  • 4 Tbs. jojoba or sweet almond oil
  • 4 - 10 drops essential oils, if desired (I used lavender)
  1. Gently melt the tallow in a saucepan over low heat until liquid but not hot. In a bowl, stir in the jojoba oil and essential oil. Let sit until solidified but not firm, about a few hours (it depends on your room temperature). There's no need to be exact.
  2. Then, whip the living daylights out of it with an electric mixer. It will turn light and fluffy and look like buttercream frosting. You will want to eat it. Do not eat it. It doesn't taste good. Trust me... I tried it.
  3. Scoop into jars and store at room temperature for a while (as in, quite a few months).
