This is a Valentine’s day special for you mamas who want to whip up something quick to keep your skin feeling soft and looking fresh. I love this recipe because it requires simple ingredients and it is very easy to make. Not only is it easy to make, but it turns out to be looking so delicious that you’ll want to end up eating it! I know my daughter wanted to get a quick taste!

A simple recipe like this is great for you if you have dry skin. Although, it is not for you if you don’t like greasy lotions. But the body butter absorbs quickly into your skin. And you can’t use this recipe if you have a nut allergy.

What is so great about homemade whipped body butter?

Well, it has many added benefits for your skin. What’s there not to love? It’s rich in vitamins, great for sensitive skin, helps fight acne, stretch marks, and rough dry skin. Plus, the lavender essential oil is amazing for skin rashes, redness, and calming relaxation for aromatherapy. I always use lavender as my go-to choice of essential oil.

Here are some things you should always know before making your own recipe.

Always be sure to do your research when purchasing essential oils. Some may contain chemicals which will be toxic for your skin. You also have to make sure that you dilute your oils before you apply directly to the skin. There are many carrier oils that you can use to dilute. For this recipe, jojoba oil and coconut oil are great for use as a carrier oil. I used a 5% dilution for a stronger scent to the body butter. Plus, the lavender essential oil can be applied directly to the skin without irritation. For some other oils, or if you have sensitive skin, you may want to use a 1 to 2% dilution for EO.

Why you need to make this recipe.

Aside from the skin benefits, its fun to make! And you’ll be proud of yourself for making your own homemade whipped body butter without having to spend a fortune on expensive creams. Sometimes, the best products are the homemade recipes because you know what you’re putting on your body.

And you don’t have to worry about what type of ingredients are used in items that you buy from the store. I mostly bought my items through Amazon, but I also like the products that are sold on this site. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’ll definitely have to get my next order through Mountain Rose Herbs.

It’s also a nice little hobby to have when you want a little break from the rest of the world.

I think it’s good to break up your routine, especially if you’ve got the winter blues this time of the year. Another reason you need to make this recipe is that it makes a great gift to give to someone for Valentine’s Day. So, if your thinking of hosting a Galentine’s day party, then think of using this recipe to give to some of your other mom friends as a little self-care V-day gift.

This recipe is so simple and it makes the perfect gift to give. #Valentine'sDay #DIY #WhippedBodyButter #Recipe Making this homemade body whipped butter also has benefits to your mental health. As a stay at home mom, it can be hard to deal with post-partum depression and anxiety. But the best ways that I have dealt with that is by keeping my mind completely occupied with fun things to do.

It encourages me to keep the negative thoughts out of my head and making your own self-care products seems to be therapeutic in a way. So, if you struggle with this as I do, then this is the hobby that you’ll want to have at your fingertips.

Do you have a self care routine? If not, then why don’t you? Is it because you feel that you don’t have enough time? It’s easy to become distracted with many things in your life. But maybe you should start with one and make time for it today. Having your own self care routine is important for your own mental health and physical self. A self care routine doesn’t mean you need to take an hour long soak in the tub. There are different ways to take care of your own self. And sometimes you just have to get creative with it. In fact, I have a free self care starter workbook that you can download in the freebies library when you sign up for weekly newsletters for Pretty Crafty and Wanderful.

What I like to do for my self care routine.

As part of my self care routine, I like to save it for a Sunday. And the reason why that is because it gives me a little refresher if I’ve had a crazy week. It also helps prepare me for a new start with the week ahead. I like to incorporate self care on Sunday by getting up a little earlier than my daughter and husband. I just enjoy drinking my coffee and sit there with no digital items on hand. Then I’ll shower and use my coconut and rose salt scrub. And then I’ll put on a clay mask and a face moisturizer after.

I’m not really the type to have so many beauty products. In fact, I’m pretty basic when it comes to beauty. But I do love to feel relaxed and have a lazy Sunday. I just recently added a salt scrub to my self care routine and I’m totally okay with never looking back. It’s sort of become a newfound obsession and it’s made me inspired to look into making my own natural organic salt scrubs.

This is the scrub that I just recently bought and there are no regrets. It smells delicious, makes my skin feel oh so soft, and it takes all the stress away. I’ve never felt more rejuvenated.

So, what are the benefits of using salt scrubs?

It’s no secret that salt scrubs are beneficial to you. By all means, this isn’t anything new, but if you’re not familiar with the benefits, they are great for replenishing, removing dead skin, and it stimulates the production of healthy skin cells. It also makes your skin feel soft after exfoliating, and it gives your skin a cleaner feel. The only thing that’s new to me is the ingredients used in this product. It contains coconut oil and rose extract.

What’s so great about coconut oil and rose extract?

Coconut oil is amazing for your skin. It’s useful for things like moisturizing the skin and it has vitamin E. But did you also know that coconut oil has anti-microbial properties? This means that you can use coconut oil to fight acne or eczema if you have really dry skin. And rose extract also contains antioxidants, Vitamins A, C, D and E, and other minerals. It’s properties make it useful for hydrating dry and sensitive skin.

When should you use a coconut rose salt scrub?

I’ve been using the Coconut and Rose Salt Scrub once a day while I’m in the shower. The one that I have is used as a body scrub only. So I tend to use this on my shoulders, hands, and feet. But my favorite use for this salt scrub is right after shaving my legs. And I have to say, my legs have never felt more smooth before this.

You can also use salt soaks if you are more of a bath person and you enjoy soaking in the tub. But if it’s a day where you just need to use a beauty product quickly before your on the go, then I suggest using the salt scrub while your washing your hands. It’ll make your hands feel super clean and really smooth. That makes it useful for anyone who gets dry hands in the winter. I know I get a little bit of eczema where my wedding ring sits, and the coconut rose salt scrub has helped tremendously for healing my dry skin.

Now you may be thinking, why not just use a moisturizer while you’re on the go? To be honest, I’ve used all kinds of moisturizers and it’s just not the same effects that I get using a salt scrub. Plus, I feel like I have to keep using a moisturizer over and over again.
