Tip 1: Allowing it to cool to ALMOST solid is key to getting the smoothest body butter.
Tip 2: A little goes a long way. You do not need globs of lotion so start with a small amount and grab a little more as you go.
I use the whipped body butter every day after my shower. I love it because it moisturizes, but also absorbs fast so my skin feels soft and I can still get dressed right away. With store bought lotion I would always have to wait a few minutes for the lotion to dry before I could get dressed which would cause me to skip lotion often because I was in a hurry.
Once you have tried the whipped body butter, try out the Lemon, Rosemary, Pepperment DIY Lotion Bars to take with you or to decorate your bathroom.
