Whipped body butter lotion

I love a good thick lotion but have a fragrance sensitivity. Its hard to find many fragrance-free lotions and the ones I do find are thin and runny and don’t leave my skin feeling nourished and moist for long. I also want to avoid putting dangerous substances on my body.

I love making my own body products whenever I can. It feels good knowing what’s going on my skin. Use organic ingredients whenever if you can. I know that helps cut down on the possible exposure to anything I don’t want to be applying to the largest organ of my body, my skin.

I feel good knowing I’m protecting my family from using things that could cause them health problems in the future. We came up with this body butter lotion recipe and I just know you’re going to love it!

Body Butter Lotion

What’s the difference between lotion and body butter? Lotions are thinner and have a higher water content than oil. It’s lighter and skin can absorb it faster, so it doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy. But it doesn’t last as long as body butter.

Body butter has more oil than water and goes on thicker. It absorbs slower but stays on longer. I love the body butter because I wash my hands A LOT with daycare and I need something with staying power that doesn’t wash off.

               

               

   

If my hands (or body) aren’t that dry, I’ll use coconut oil for a quick lotion effect, but it does wash away on my hands, so I make this body butter and it will hold on longer and soak in deeper leaving my really dry skin nourished and helps it heal up.
