When we think of natural health we immediately think of diets and what we put in our mouth. But, we also need to take into consideration what we absorb into our bodies through other means, including our skin. Natural health is important in skincare for many reasons. The products that we are most frequently exposed through external absorption are haircare and skincare products. We have everything you need to know about the benefits of natural hair care in our natural living blog. Once you realise the benefits of living a naturally healthy lifestyle, moving to a natural skincare routine makes sense. This natural whipped body butter recipe is an easy and highly effective product swap.
Whipped Body Butter For Natural Health
We LOVE our body butter. I don’t remember the last time we bought a lotion of cream from a store. The added bonus of this recipe is, once scented nicely, in a pretty jar, decorated with a cute tag, it makes a great gift for friends or family.
What is the difference between body butter and lotion?
Body butter consists only of oils whereas lotion consists mainly of water. Being completely oil based means body butter is much richer, the quantity stretches further and it takes longer to absorb. Water also causes things to spoil quicker so lotions are packed with preservatives.
How to make natural body butter
This recipe is not only easy to make but creates a really luxurious product. It is also great for babies or those with sensitive skin. If you live in or are visiting an especially dry area this will be a life saver!
