I have an obsession with making body butter. There's something about putting together the simplest of ingredients and then whipping it up into this luxurious, natural, and nourishing lotion. This Lavender Body Butter does just that; it's simple to make, only four ingredients and uses lavender essential oil.
I've listened to many of you in a few other of my whipped butter recipes and I see that many of you do not like the greasy feeling that coconut oil can leave. If you add in a few tablespoons of arrowroot powder into this recipe, it will cut the greasy feeling and absorb quicker into you skin!
