Deep Moisturizing Body Butter

This moisturizing butter is one of my favorite recipes. It’s quick and easy to make, it will last you for a while, and your skin will feel soft and smell good all day. I make it all the time for myself, my kids and my husband. I bought a bunch little mason jars and ribbons and use them to gift the butter to my friends and family. They generally love it and it’s personalized.

I love this body butter. Every time I put it on it takes over 30 mins to absorb and even then I am leaving grease trails everywhere. Do you have a suggestion for better absorption or cut down the greasiness? I use the Shea and mango cream as my base.

Well, I just used Almond oil and a little jojoba and it works, It just depends on your skin needs. Thanks for your response.

Is there another oil that is equivalent to coconut oil. I recently discovered after many years of using and consuming coconut oil, I have developed an allergy to it. I have avocado and jojoba?
