If you’ve been frustrated by heavy, melt-prone body butters, this is the formulation for you. In this post I’ll be teaching you how to make an easy 7-ingredient body butter that is lighter than traditional DIY body butters, won’t melt in hot weather, won’t seize up if it gets too cold, and won’t go grainy on you. It’s also cheaper to make!

Today we’re kicking off our holiday 2022 making with a silky, decadent Hot Chocolate Natural Body Butter 🍫 This formulation is part of our first theme—Hot Chocolate! This is a bit of a “Bee Better” of a theme I very briefly touched on back in 2013. It was just a soap, and I wanted to do the theme justice with a few more decadent formulations 😋

Cleansing balms are a fabulous way to cleanse the skin (they’re especially great for removing long-wearing makeup!), and they’re really easy to make. In this post I’ll teach you how to make three different simple cleansing balm formulations. Each uses just three or four easy-to-get ingredients, and I explain the purpose (and substitution options) for all of them so you’ll understand how cleansing balm formulations work. Let’s get started!

If you’re looking for a glossy, slippy, richly hydrating body lotion sort of thing for summer, I think this pretty pink Raspberry Mint Body Custard might just be it. This formulation is unlike emulsion I’ve ever made, with a consistency that puts me in mind of rich custard with a hint of taffy-like plasticity that’s rather fascinating. It stars lightweight raspberry seed oil, hydrating sodium lactate, and an all-natural palm-free emulsifier; I hope you find it as delightful and intriguing as I do!

This silky, indulgent Raspberry Mint No-Melt Summer Body Butter has all the luxurious loveliness you want in a body butter, but it’s much lighter—making it perfect for summer skincare! It is an emulsified body butter, so it’s not only faster absorbing than anhydrous body butters thanks to its water content, but it also won’t melt in hot temperatures ☀️ Let’s dive in!
