Winter can be the worst for drying your skin out! I have sensitive skin as it is, so I’ve always had to be really careful about what lotion I use. For years the only brand that didn’t make me itch like crazy was Aveeno. And even though they’re better than most, it’s healthier and cheaper to make your own.
I haven’t tried my hand at making my own lotion yet. I’ll admit, the thought of trying to emulsify the oil and water together makes me a bit nervous! Then there’s the worry that it’ll separate or even spoil. I’m sure I’m making it into a bigger deal than it is.
But when I saw the idea for whipped body butter, I knew I had to try it. You simply combine 3 pure ingredients and whip them into a fluffy, skin nourishing butter. What could be easier than that? Even better, this recipe uses cocoa butter and peppermint essential oil, so it smells like a peppermint patty!
