Body butter is great any time of year, but I always think of using it during the winter months.
It’s thick, rich texture makes body butter most suitable to dry skin. The inclusion of butters such as cocoa butter and shea butter as well as oils like olive and coconut oil, make body butter extremely moisturizing and nourishing.
Body butter is very easy to make. If you’ve never made it before, you might be surprised at the simplicity.
Body butter does not have to be whipped, however, many recipes do include a whipping step to make the butter light and fluffy. This also aids in application as the butter is easier to apply when whipped.
I’ve read that whipping helps cut down on greasiness as well. Although, I am not certain of the truth of this as yet.
Here are a few wonderful DIY body butter recipes to make and enjoy:
