peppermint-body-butterDo you have dry skin? I have dry skin. During the winter, I am constantly applying moisturizers to my skin. I go through so much, so fast!

I am very particular about the ingredients that can be found in my skincare products, so the lotions and body butters I like to use can get kind of pricey. I don’t mind paying for quality, but you really can make your own for so much cheaper!

Two ingredients that work extremely well for moisturizing are coconut oil and shea butter. This recipe combines those two gems with one of my favorite holiday scents – Peppermint. I only recommend using the highest quality essential oils in your skincare products since what you apply to your skin goes directly into your bloodstream with no filter!
