Body Butter Cream - The New Trend In Skin Care

Below is a fantastic article from the UK News Reporter about the wonderful benefits of body butter. Finally, the rest of the world is catching up... Whipped Beautiful Body Butter Creme

Why body butter?

Richer than a lotion, body butter is a nutrient dense cream that is applied liberally to the skin. Body butter can be derived from mango butter, shea butter, or any other natural butter.

What is a whipped body butter?

A whipped body butter is often lighter in texture than a normal body butter. It gets this consistency from a process that occurs before packaging the product. It is beaten with a machine until it becomes thicker.

What are the benefits of using a body butter on your skin?

The most powerful benefit of a body butter is moisture. Body butters are great emollients that accomplish two major tasks:

1) keeping the moisture inside of your skin and
2) locking dryness outside of your skin.

Body butters act as a natural protectant of the skin guarding it from the elements.

Nourishment is the second benefit of using a body butter. They’re excellent for nourishment because of their ingredients. These ingredients are high in both omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. The omegas repair the skin and antioxidants keep the skin from being damaged further. Popular oils that are often made into body butters are mango, kukui, cocoa, and shea butters.

The last benefit of using a body butter on your skin is the softening effect that it has. Body butters help to smooth the skin over time. In fact, some body butters are so powerful that their effects can actually be seen instantly.

Simple Ingredient No. 8 | Eucalyptus Lemon Essential Oil

I've been testing a new lemon eucalyptus breathe again phial formula to add to our fantastic collection. I've been using it for several months and the results are great. I find the eucalyptus lemon essential oil is awesome in clearing my stuffy nose. Since we do not test on animals (only the human kind; mostly me and my family), I've been using a mixture before bed to un-stuff my nose in an effort to help me breath better while asleep. By the way, I have sleep apnea and use a c-pap machine at night and have found that if I put a few drops in the tubing or the moisture tray (with distilled water), I breath better. If sleep apnea is not a problem for you, I would suggest putting a few drops on a piece of tissue and deeply inhaling for relief. 

Yeah me! and soon to be Yeah you! as we will introduce this to our breathe again aromatherapy phial line soon.
