  • DIY: Body Butter

    Throwback to our How To: Body Butter post; check it out, first, for a step-by-step tutorial.
    Personally, I rely solely on my homemade body butter and use of natural oils to moisturize instead of store-bought body/face lotions. Since I was running low, I decided to whip some more up last night. 

    Ingredients:
    • Argan Oil: Antioxidant carrier oil rich amino acids, vitamin A and E (c/o ActuallyOrganic)
    • Beeswax: Solidifying agent that aids carrier oils to emulsify *Not vegan!*
    • Essential Oil: Aroma agent that is naturally plant based 
    • Coconut Oil: Antioxidant carrier oil rich in natural saturated fats
    • Lanolin: Emollient aids as a humectant *Not vegan!*
    • Lecithin: Viscous emollient when used topically *Vegan only if (soy) plant-based!*
    • Olive Oil: Antioxidant carrier oil rich in monounsaturated fatty acids
    • Vegetable Glycerin: Natural humectant that seals in moisture
    • Vitamin E Oil: Antioxidant carrier oil known for its anti-aging property

    Please note that I often guesstimate when it comes to recipes, so my formulation is constantly changing. Be sure to check out this tutorial on How To: Body Butter to see the step-by-step process.
