Come winter, dry skin cries out for hydration and a moisture barrier to protect it from the wind and cold, dry air. Massaging in a luxurious, whipped body butter with warming scents may sound pleasant, until you read the long list of ingredients that could make your skin itchier and drier. To feed your skin the nutrients it craves, you can make your own non-toxic, plant-based body butter at home. Read on to learn how to whip up a custom body butter with only a few ingredients: butter (solid), oil (liquid), and essential oils (fragrance and therapeutic benefits).
With a thicker consistency than lotions and oils, body butters effectively moisturize tough, dry spots when skin needs lots of hydration. When made at home without irritating additives, body butter delivers essential nutrients to hydrate sensitive skin and maintain moisture. By making it at home, you can customize yours by choosing butters and oils that suit your skin’s needs
