body butter

My skin has been very dry and rough with the change of seasons.  I’m also running out of my favorite body butter. I decided to make a DIY Body Butter. I am so happy I did. It was easy to do, cost-effective, and I used Lavender Young Living Essential Oils to scent my moisturizer (which made it smell AMAZING!).  I’ve been using it for a few days now, and I will probably never buy lotion again. I think I have a new favorite.  If you want soft, smooth, healthy skin, then make this easy moisturizer!

  1. By using this oil morning and night, you will not only help yourself look younger, your skin is able to breathe,
    while it generates new cells and repairs. The fatty acids in the oil help keep skin healthy and
    prevent early aging. One of the very important ways of
    turning back the clock and looking younger is the type of skin care products
    you use.
