Most of all conventional cosmetics and personal care products are full of chemicals, which can be harmful to our health. Our skin, as the largest organ of our body, absorbs everything we put on it very efficiently within minutes. Regular use of toxins in cosmetics can cause various health problems.
The best way to avoid these harmful substances is to buy certified organic, quality products or to prepare them at home from ingredients we trust.
Here is the recipe of a wonderful body butter. It's fun to prepare and you'll love it!
Recipe: 40 g cacao butter, 40 g coconut oil, 1 tablespoon jojoba oil, 1 teaspoon St John's Wort oil and 15-20 drops of essential oils (I used lavender, ylang-ylang and vanilla) Melt the oils over a very gentle heat. Cool the mixture in the fridge for a while. Add the esential oils and beat with a hand mixer. Fill your jar and store at room temeprature.
Use this instead of conventional lotions.
