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

  • Kokum butter (100 g) – Buy here
  • Sweet Almond Oil (50 ml) – Buy here

While I used an infused oil for my DIY (marigold and some more herbs), you can conveniently use any unrefined cold-pressed oil.

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…

Voila!

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.

Why?

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.

Why?

Water in this body butter = Bacterial growth = Body Butter Decays

Your body butter will hence, get spoiled and efforts go down the drain.

Applying any Herbal Ubtan like Anuhya Sunni Pindi (Buy here) before bathing will work wonders in getting you glowing skin.

Your body’s skin needs that!

Come on, nod at this.

Results

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?

  1. Hello Nidhal, do you have any body cream recipe in your treasure box apt for summer season?

    Will this one work during summer?

    Thanks a lot.

    P.S. I live in Mumbai

    1. Hi Vastavika

      As far as a recipe is concerned for summers (no wait, scorching summers since you live in Mumbai), as of now none.

      All these body butters are highly prone to melting in summers so, as far as handiness is concerned, they get a big zero in that department.

      If you’re open to the idea of investing on a readymade organic cream, then definitely options open up!
