Benefits of the other ingredients used:
Sweet Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E, a natural antioxidant that helps heal sun damage, reduce the signs of aging, and fade scars. Thanks to its high content in Vitamin A and its antibacterial properties, Almond oil is excellent at treating acne. It soaks in quickly and is a powerful moisturizer.
Honey, especially Manuka honey, is great for acne and scar treatment; it has clarifying and anti-aging properties; it also gives a real boost to skin complexion thanks to its moisturizing and soothing properties.
Ingredients & Instructions
- 1.5 oz Kokum butter
- 1.5 oz Sweet Almond oil
- 1 tsp Raw Honey or Manuka Honey
- 60 drops essential oils: Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Nutmeg, Vanilla Oleoresin
Melt Kokum butter using a double boiler (keep the temperature as low as possible). Add Sweet Almond oil. Let it cool for about five minutes, then add remaining ingredients. Transfer into an airtight container or a glass jar (I used this 4 oz amber glass jar) and let it cool down completely. The DIY body butter is ready!
Apply regularly to keep your skin hydrated and healthy!
Tip: To repair cracked feet, slather on body butter and put socks on your feet while the butter is still wet. It will help seal in the moisture and provide a more intense treatment.
