Solid Body Butter

I started to make this simple recipe recently, when I got tired of making creams. I will go back to work soon, therefore I won’t have much time for making creams anymore. I don’t want to go back to buy cosmetics, so I decided to give solid body butters a try. I have dry skin, so this kind of product kind of fits my skin type.
