The all-natural ingredients leave you with baby soft skin and a hint of rose.

I love to make my own bodybutters. It’s so simple, saves you money and there’s definitely nothing nasty in them. Plus you can choose the scents you really like. All-round win!

Btw,you can always add some Vitamin E to it, that makes the oils last longer. And adding a bit of cornstarch is a good idea too.(I’d say for example for the pot here about a teaspoon). It’ll make the butter a bit softer, less greasy.
