Bacuri Butter

Bacuri Butter: A Body Butter Recipe

Yield 3.5 ounces

I kept this recipe fairly simple - just three ingredients. I chose not to add any essential oils because this recipe really doesn't need them. It's a simple nourishing body butter that will leave your skin feeling moisturized, supple, and glowing.



  1. On low heat, melt bacuri butter and shea butter in a double boiler. (I always use a small saucepan of boiling water and a 4 cup Pyrex measuring container.)
  2. When butters are just melted, add in red raspberry seed oil.
  3. Allow the butter mixture to cool until it is still liquid, but soft (it took mine about one hour). You can also put your butter mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.
  4. Whip with electric beaters (a small stand mixer will do as well) until completely cool. Be patient! It could take a while depending on the temperature of your butter.
  5. Store in a cool, dry place. This butter will melt if it gets too warm, but you can always harden it by placing it in the refrigerator or a cooler spot.


I like to use this butter when I'm headed out into the sun or when I've just come in from a hot summer day. It's a beautiful blend of oils and it always leaves my skin feeling moisturized and soft.
