Are you ready for softer skin? This body butter has you covered. All of you! I put it on from head to toe and it keeps my skin feeling soft and supple all day. And best of all, it’s not too greasy and doesn’t clog my pores. I like to add essential oils for fragrance, but this butter has a sweet nutty scent on its own. A little goes a long way, so this batch should last you several weeks. Enjoy!
Bergamot is an excellent addition to natural and aromatherapy skin care products. It can help keep acne and other skin infections at bay. The antiseptic properties of its essential oil make it wonderful as a scalp treatment, and if used on the scalp over time, it can make the hair healthier, shinier, and fuller. Bergamot oil can also be used to keep wounds from becoming infected as it will kill bacteria and will keep it from growing again within the skin while the injury heals.
