3 DIY Body Butters for Dry Skin

| 1/17/2019 3:40:00 PM

You might look forward to cozying up on the fireplace during winter nights, but this season can be too much for the skin. During winter, the extreme drop in temperature makes it hard for the skin to maintain hydration and often people end up with dry, itchy and cracked skin. Good thing there is a natural and homemade way to bring your skin back to its hydrated and radiant state—and you can do it in your own kitchen.

I love DIY body butters! I’m sharing with you my top three DIY body butter recipes for dry skin. Making your own homemade body butter can bring a huge deal of relief to your dry skin (and your pocket, too!). With DIY body butters, you’re guaranteed that only natural and quality ingredients go on your skin. It allows room for fun and creativity too, as you can customize the recipe to your liking.

Mango Body Butter Recipe

Mango Body Butter is one of my favorites for dry skin because it is cost-effective, incredibly easy to make, and works wonders on your dry skin.  A lot of mango body butters out there are manufactured with added chemicals, but this recipe ensures that only pesticide-free organic butter is used. Using proper ingredients and following the steps below, you can easily whip up your own mango body butter in less than 30 minutes. You can get my full recipe on my blog here.


  • 12 tbs of organic unrefined mango butter
  • 2 tbs of organic refined shea butter
  • 6 tbs of organic safflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon of arrowroot powder optional
  • 15 drops of roman chamomile essential oil
  • 3 drops of bergamot teraphene-free essential oil
  • 10 drops of patchouli essential oil
