Healthy Homemade Holidays: Rose Body Butter

Why not give a more personal and luxurious gift to friends, family, or secret Santas on your holiday list?† Hereís a rich body butter thatís perfect for the drying effects of winter weather.† Unlike store-bought versions, it is totally free of synthetic chemicals, colors, and artificial fragrances, making it perfect for sensitive skin or anyone whoís trying to avoid these less-than-desirables.† Plus, itís easy to make.

What you need:

A blender (preferably an older blender since the body butter can leave a residue)

A small- to medium-size glass bowl

A small saucepan

A spatula

Nice-looking jars to hold the body butter

Make sure all tools are sterilized before beginning.

Great questions Silver H. which is important for proper storage and use. I'm wondering if this is good for over dried shin since it's homemade. Never hurts to try anything once. Will book mark for later use. Thank you for the post.

Could you add Grapefruit seed extract or vitamin E so it could stay outside of the refrigerator?

The thought of applying a cold body butter in the winter makes shiver just thinking about it! Are there any natural preservatives that can be added to it so it won't spoil outside the fridge? What about Vitamin E? Any ideas anyone?
Thanks!

I much prefer to use it to make lemoncello as an apero or liquid vanilla for cooking.

Cute in advance of Halloween
