This Whipped Tallow Body Butter Recipe makes a creamy body butter that works well to moisturize and nourish the skin.
As you might have realized by now that I am a big believer in natural remedies. This one seems to good not to share. Using a rendered animal fat on your face and body might have sounded strange to me at one point in my life. But now that I do, there is no going back. As you know if you read the post, My Natural Skincare Routine, that I oil wash my face twice a day.
But in addition to that using beef tallow has been incorporated for moisturizing and for all the benefits listed below. I not only use this on my face but I also use it in place of a standard lotion now. I have noticed the skin on my feet is much softer after years of using specialty lotions for the feet that often disappointed. This stuff is the real deal. It works for so many of our skincare issues that I am happy to share it with you here.

In a double boiler (or bowl with sauce pot), combine the tallow with the raw cocoa butter until completely melted together. When melted, remove from the heat. Allow it to cool about 15 minutes. Add the coconut oil. Stir to combine. Place the bowl in the fridge to set.
This will only take a few minutes to do. Remove from the fridge when the mixture has set and is soft to the touch. Take the hand blender or mixer with the whip attachment and begin whipping until the tallow mixture is light and fluffy. This only takes about a minute or so. When whipped to a nice and fluffy consistency, it is ready. Transfer the body butter to a mason jar or a similar jar with a lid. Store in a cool dry place.
How To Use Whipped Tallow Body Butter
To use, you will only need a small amount. Remember, a little goes a long way. Rub it gently into the skin in a circular motion just as you would a regular lotion. It will absorb into the skin after a few minutes. I use this body butter daily on my hands, feet, arms, chest and face as it is safe to use every day and as needed.
