Benefits Of Natural Body Butters
Because of their naturally nourishing compounds, body butter is one of the best ways to hydrate your skin. Though most natural butters are odourless, some, like shea butter, have a mild, nutty scent. For this reason, most body butter recipes incorporate essential oils to add extra interest and some additional health properties to the cream.
Overall, body butter is meant to be applied directly to trouble spots to heal skin and promote hair health. They can address rashes, wrinkles, chronic dryness, blemishes, wound healing, cracking, inflammation, general irritation, and more. For instance, many pregnant women swear by using natural body butter as a solution for stretch marks, and the butter’s highly concentrated ingredients work well to combat cuticle problems as well.
