I think you will agree with me when I say
It’s REALLY hard to grab a budget-friendly organic body butter nowadays.
Or is it really?
Well, turns out you can ease the strain on your pockets, if you put your DIY prowess to work.
But whom should you look up to?
Which recipe should you give a shot to?
Does it REALLY work?
My Senior aka Mommy
You may have gone through her
- Organic facial Ubtan to fade dark spots and skin tan
- Her anti-aging moisturizer
- Face scrub to exfoliate skin gently
Is there still any reason to doubt her expertise?
As usual, we will add NO synthetic fragrances, fillers or garbage to our body butter.
Notepads out, chefs!
Kokum Body Butter: Ingredients
Stock up on these ingredients
While I used an infused oil for my DIY (marigold and some more herbs), you can conveniently use any unrefined cold-pressed oil.
- Peppermint Essential oil (35 drops) – Buy here
Kokum Body Butter: Procedure
Step 1: Prepare your double boiler. Add your Kokum butter and sweet almond oil (or infused oil – if you are a hard-core DIYer)
Step 2: Switch on the stove. Stir occasionally.
In 5 mins, it’ll liquefy
Step 3: Switch off the stove.
Store the vessel in a fridge for 10-15 mins.
Step 4: Take it out and whip!
Prefer an electronic blender (Buy here) – saves time and effort. Oh yes, it lends accuracy too.
Add your essential oil finally and…
Your Kokum body butter is here to soothe your skin
How Does Mom Use This Kokum Body Butter?
Immediately after having a bath!
That’s the best time.
Because it stays longer and hydrates our skin deeper leaving it baby soft and crack-free for long.
Here’s the catch
Do NOT let even a drop of water make its way to your moisturizer.
Water in this body butter = Bacterial growth = Body Butter Decays
Your body butter will hence, get spoiled and efforts go down the drain.
Your body’s skin needs that!
Come on, nod at this.
Here’s how my mom’s skin glows naturally!
She has been using her Kokum body butter for at least 5 years. Sometimes, on her face too thanks to its non-comedogenic property.
And yes, luxurious creamy texture
How can we ignore that?
So when is the skin chef who is reading this heading to their secret lab?
