Have you ever tried body butter? If you haven't then the name might sound strange to you. “Do you wear it or eat it or cook with it?” Sometimes my market customers will ask me that very question. And a few have even dared to timidly lick a dab from their hand because it smells so good. While there is no harm in doing so since I use only quality organic real ingredients; the purpose of body butter is more for the skin that the gut.
The doctor’s solution was steroid creams, oatmeal baths and expensive lotion bottles that had a long list of non-pronounceable ingredients. They brought relief, for which I was grateful, but I wondered if there was more I could do.
Research and time led me to realize that conventional lotions have really very little to do in partnering with the body in deep natural moisturizing and more to do with masking the skin and delighting the nose with scents. I started seeking out the idea of natural, knowing that the more basic and clean the ingredients are then the easier it is for the body to be happy instead of working hard to rid the extra unneeded chemicals. I felt it was important to put something on my babes that did not have petroleum, parabens, oxybenzone or colors and chemicals that synthetically mimicked nature.
Body butter is a fun process that does take a little bit of time, but is so worth it when you get to experience the creamy finished product. It is much thicker than a lotion and is stored in a jar instead of a pump bottle. Its rich thickness and nourishing ingredients make it perfect to deeply hydrate and moisturize the skin beyond the normal every day softening routine.
Here at Healing Treasures, we have played around with different recipe formulas over the years for our own skin sensitivity needs and now offer 3 different types of butter. Why 3 body butters instead of just 1 type for all your needs? That is a good question. The answer to that is because we are all original treasures. Our bodies are unique and respond differently to moisturizing helps.
Our Original Body Butter is a blend of coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, vitamin e and essential oils of frankincense and lavender that are known to promote cellular healing.
I have one daughter with psoriasis on her hands. Her knuckles flare and break open easily from the constant hand washing of working in both preschool and food service industries. Sun and sweat also irritate her skin with angry episodes. But once she started using our Original Body Butter things calmed right down.
Our Advanced Body Butter is blended in a different ratio of coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea, vitamin e and lavender essential oils and has the extra benefit of beeswax to protect the skin naturally.
Another of my daughters is quick to flare up with eczema. She became frustrated with conventional products that did nothing but sit on top of her skin. She has found great results in using our Advanced Body Butter and makes sure her supply never runs too low.
Whatever your skin moisturizing needs are, we are happy to partner with you in finding a solution.
If you have any questions, please know that we are here.
You are an amazing treasure and we celebrate you!
My name is Julie and I am passionate about looking for the clean and natural ways to handle every day life.
