Amazing Natural Body Cream Recipe

This natural body cream recipe comes from the Sophie Uliano.

Sophie is the NY Times Best-Selling author of Gorgeously Green, Do It Gorgeously, and The Gorgeously Green Diet.

After Julia Roberts wrote the forward to Sophie’s first book, and they appeared together on an Earth Day Celebration special of the Oprah Show in 2008, eco fashionistas, green conscious women, celebrities, and publications around the world went gorgeously gaga for Sophie’s approachable attitude to eco living.

Part of Sophie’s charm is that she makes going green fun. Best of all, there is no granola hippy in sight with her ideas. They are chic. Hence the saying, “Do It Gorgeously!”

If you think you can’t be fashionable and environmentally conscious, Sophie will help you find a healthy balance between sustainability and style.

he has a saying, “there are different shades of green” where everybody can do their part and adapt an eco-friendly lifestyle in a way that feels comfortable and is achievable regardless of individual circumstances.

Sophie has wonderful gardening, cooking, and product advice. But the quick easy green recipes for natural organic beauty products and cleaning products are my favorite videos. I have made a lot of her recipes and they are amazing.

This natural body cream is quick and easy to make with just four ingredients, and is absolutely divine.

Sophie says, “the combination of this four-ingredient cream is delicious – the subtle scent of coconut and vanilla makes you want to eat it. It takes 3 minutes to prepare in a food processor.” I say, “this cream is a winner and not to be missed!”

I don’t make this body cream in my blender as the carriage is just too big to blend such a small amount. I have found that the prep bowl of my food processor works well, and the cream turns out perfectly every single time in just a few seconds without the need to get in there with a spatula and waste any ingredients.

This natural body cream is also extremely affordable if you buy the raw ingredients in bulk from New Directions Aromatics. Love this site! As I have said many times with my skin creams and cleaning products, the most economical way to purchase your organic raw ingredients is to chip in with some friends and buy in bulk online.

Sophie has so many incredible ideas on her website. Trust me, you will get lost in her “gorgeously green” world for hours and be better for it!

Instructions

  1. Throw all of the ingredients into your blender or mini food processor, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until emulsified and creamy. 

  2. Transfer to a dark glass, and place in the fridge overnight to thicken and solidify. The cream will keep for up to six months in the fridge. But it never lasts that long.

  1. If you love soft skin and lavender, you have to try this cream… so easy and wonderful. I’m thinking gifties for the holidays are in my future…

    1. Oh, you will LOVE it. Sophie’s recipes are SOOO amazing. I adore this cream. SO easy, and your skin just drinks it in. Enjoy 🙂

  2. Can you substitute anything for the almond oil? Like apricot kernal oil or jojoba? If not, is this almond oil the same as the almond oil sold by the olive oil or is it sold in the body products area?

    Thank you!!

    1. Yes, you can substitute other oils in this recipe. You can find these oils in the body care section of the health food store or online. I like the New Directions Aromatics website. Organic ingredients, great prices, and fabulous customer service. You can get the glass jars there too 🙂

  3. Such a fantastic refreshing resource which I will employ to get myself back on track to lowering my carbon footprint & lightening the load on our overburdened health care system. Thank you very much, Blender Girl.
    Cheers,

    1. That is wonderful. This body cream is a such a fabulous recipe that is gorgeous and feels indulgent. Enjoy 🙂

  4. I was wondering if you had a recipe for foot balm (with bees wax and shea butter)?
    Now that summer is here, my feet are dry and cracking.
    Thank you
