How to make anti-aging body butter.

 

 

I started making my body cream about 3 years ago, I was tired of not knowing what goes on my skin. As always, I wanted few ingredients that really do what it says on the tin but finding this was not easy. Our skin is the largest  organ of our body and it deserves better treatment. Chemical residues, emissions, and impurities do more harm than good to the whole system. Whatever we put on our skin finds its way into our bloodstream. My philosophy when I started making my body butter was that if I cannot control what I breathe in, I should have a bit of control on what goes into my bloodstream. Moreover, it is fun whipping up and experimenting with different natural oil and butter. There are so many oil and butter to choose from. Natural butter includes cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, kukui butter, jojoba butter etc. However, natural oils are more popular and they include coconut oil, almond oil, peach kernel oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, blackseed oil and so on. It is a good rule to research any oil before deciding on which to use.

In my body butter, I used argan oil, mango butter, shea butter, peach kernel oil and black seed oil with drops lemon essential oil. I chose these oils because of their goodness. Argan oil is not only a good moisturiser, it gives a visible glow and reduces wrinkles. Argan oil restores the elasticity of the skin and fights premature ageing. It is great for hair, it soothes, protects and heals. Shea butter and mango butter are great for skin as well while black seed oil seals up the goodness.
