DIY Orange Body Butter

orangebodybutter1Since my last DIY body product did so well (DIY Grapefruit Citrus Body Scrub) I thought I would post this DIY Orange Body Butter. Not only does it smell heavenly, it’s really lovely and leaves your skin feeling very soft and smooth.

Am I the only one who had a major skin change after baby #1? After having Jordan I have had so many different body changes, the two major ones being hair and skin. My hair? Constantly falls out. It’s super hard to manage, it’s super thick and yet it falls out everywhere all the time. My skin? is so dry except my face which I find gets extremely oily. It’s hard to manage, and at almost 30 I still break out all the time.

Anyone else?

Well, I’ve been using this recipe for over a month now and I’ve noticed a huge difference in my face and the rest of my body. It’s no longer dry, but it also isn’t leaving my face oily anymore either. Which is a huge bonus. So, if you are looking for something to try that doesn’t cost an arm or a leg, or both – I highly suggest a DIY butter like this one!
