Hey There Readers!
As my post, I have decided to share some insight on the skin care products that sit on our drugstore shelves today. I was cleaning out my bathroom a few weeks ago, and found untouched body butter that was only about a month or two old from Bath and Body Works. I opened it to try it out, and the extremely strong, unnatural scents polluted the air of the room. To make me further disgusted, a body butter that is meant to be creamy and rich, had an almost rubbery texture and did not leave the skin feeling silky soft. I’m not saying that all hand creams, and lotions in the stores are bad – There are lotions and creams on the market I do enjoy using, and Bath and Body Works does have some lovely products still – but we should be more aware of factors such as what ingredients make up the product, was their animal testing involved, or whether or not the product is healthy for our skin.
Today, I am going to share with you a super simple, all natural body butter you can whip up in no time. If that’s not enough, it is also great for deep conditioning your hair.I guarantee you that this recipe will leave your skin feeling soft and your hair feeling silky.
Minty Coconut Lime Body Butter/Hair Conditioner
1 cup Coconut oil, room temp
Zest of a Lime and its juice
2 springs of Mint, finely chopped
10 drops Mint oil
2 drops Lemon oil
Whip Coconut Oil and fold in other ingredients and store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place! Simple as that!
