Tag Archives: DIY Hand and Foot Butter

My DIY Hand Butter is a great go-to hand conditioner, especially now that the weather is turning cooler. Wind, rain & colder weather can wreak havoc on our skin. Use this butter throughout the day or as part of your nightly routine. This DIY butter works great on feet, as well. Give yourself a quick foot massage & cover your feet with socks, overnight. Sure you could buy this at the store but if you like to save money, this is a great alternative. Plus, you know exactly what is going on & into your skin.

Easy DIY Hand & Feet Butter

Easy DIY Hand & Feet Butter


  • 1 oz Cocoa Butter
  • 1.5 oz Pure Shea Butter
  • 1.5 oz Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Castor Oil
  • 1 tsp Pure Vitamin-E Oil
  • 6 drops each, Thyme Oil & Tea Tree Oil
  • Large glass measuring cup
  • Kitchen scale
  • Plastic/rubber whisk
  • Plastic/rubber spatula
  • Small portable, sealable container OR
  • Old plastic or glass jar with a pour spout or nozzle of your preference


  1. Fill a large pot or bowl with hot water. I used this to melt butters, because I didn't want to overheat the oils or use microwave, to lose any of the good qualities of the oils or butters. This method will take longer but it's once every 6 months or longer.
  2. Place large measuring bowl over hot water.
  3. Simply whisk mixture together, minus the essentials oil, until melted.
  4. Add essential oils.
  5. Pour in jar.
  6. Leave uncovered until completely cool.
  7. Massage a pea size into hands or feet.


Use what you have at home, or what you can afford in store or online. Try different ratios and types of butters, oils & essential oils.
