Have you seen Nikisha Brunson’s body butter recipe video tutorial. She shared how to make the best body butter for dry skin she can personally use and for her own family. She called it the DIY All Natural Whipped Body Butter. If not, watch it. You will surely love it. Her homemade whipped body butter is super creamy, great for stretch marks and in moisturizing the skin.
It’s actually one of her favorite DIYs and she will not be buying any more of those creams from the store or anything like that because at least she know that this is super moisturizing, great for her skin and has no chemicals. Because if you don’t know, 60% of what we put on top of our skin goes into our blood stream. So imagine if you’re putting on a bunch of chemicals and parabens and its going straight to your bloodstream causing things like cancer. If you want to prevent that, it’s great to make your own stuff at home with all natural ingredients.
Anyway, we will share Nikisha’s body butter recipe below. Please continue reading…
