Whipped Shea and Kombo Butter
This gorgeous whipped body butter blend is so luscious, soothing, and nourishing. Did we mention it has a rich, velvety aroma that is simply divine? If you love body butter, this one is a must-try!
Melt the shea and cocoa butter in a double boiler. Add the Kombo Butter and jojoba.
Place in the refrigerator until cool and the top begins to harden slightly.
Blend with a mixer on high speed for 3-4 minutes, resting for two minutes. Continue this for approximately 20-30 minutes until you obtain a gorgeous whipped butter!
Add a few drops of the essential oils of your choice.
Essential oil suggestions for Kombo butter:
- Sugandha Kokila (Cinnamomum glaucescens) Essential Oil
- Balsam Fir (Abies balsamea) Essential Oil
- Juniper Berry (Juniperus communis) Essential Oil
- Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) Essential Oil
- Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) Essential Oil
- Plai (Central) (Zingiber cassumunar) Essential Oil
Note: As Kombo butter can be either a bit on the dry side or a bit on the wet side, adjust this recipe to fit your needs. The drier the Kombo butter the more jojoba will be needed. One person has suggested 2 more ounces of Jojoba worked well for her.

I am in love with this butter!!! I did read the reviews and without knowing if my kombo butter was dry or not ( i have never used kombo before) I did use 3 oz of jojoba and did add a bit more cocoa. It turned out amazing. I could not imagine it smelling better with an essential oil, so i didn’t add any. LOVE!!Terri Hamilton Britton
I tried this blend for the first time and used 4 oz of cocoa butter and 4 oz of vanilla infused jojoba oil. I absolutely love the smell and texture of the blend. I didn’t want to add any essential oils because I loved the smell of blend just as it was. It smells like chocolate, since I used extra cocoa butter and the vanilla infused jojoba oil. It feels so luxurious on my skin! Thanks for the great recipe! I am happy to be able to make my own products and stop buying the toxic lotions and body butters on the market.Jessica Faleide
This blend smells amazing and feels like silk! Increasing the Jojoba from 1oz to 3 oz’s makes this so smooth and light. I added Suganda Kokila and Plai to help with pain topically while moisturizing my skin post operative. It whipped up perfectly and will continue to be one of my go to bases for whipped butter!Dee
This is a divine recipe but it does need additional jojoba oil. Wish the proportions in the recipe were more true as it is impossible to tell the final consistency of the product until it has sat overnight. Very effective for dry skin though.Anne
I love this recipe! after making an adjustment however…. I had pretty dry kombo so I added an extra ounce of jojoba, whipped it up and it turned out spectacularly!!! consistency of peanut butter. I also added marjoram & peppermint. It’s a wonderful butter/blend for dry, achy feet!Kaia
