I have stopped using store-bought lotions for quite some time now. Most of them tend to consist of very sketchy ingredients. Over the years I have developed some rules for my skin care products. My motto is, ”If it’s not natural, don’t use it.” Although there are some really great brands out there that are organic and 100% natural, they can be pretty pricey, so years ago I decided to start making my own products at home. The best part about making your own products is that you already have most of the ingredients in your fridge, and it’s really great for you minimalist lovelies out there that don’t want to go out and spend a ton of money. This luxurious homemade body butter is very simple to make and only takes a few ingredients to prepare it. You can swap out the oils that I used for your favorite essential oils, and to create more of this product, simply double the recipe. Lets get started!
