My DIY Hand Butter is a great go-to hand conditioner, especially now that the weather is turning cooler. Wind, rain & colder weather can wreak havoc on our skin. Use this butter throughout the day or as part of your nightly routine. This DIY butter works great on feet, as well. Give yourself a quick foot massage & cover your feet with socks, overnight. Sure you could buy this at the store but if you like to save money, this is a great alternative. Plus, you know exactly what is going on & into your skin.
Old plastic or glass jar with a pour spout or nozzle of your preference
Fill a large pot or bowl with hot water. I used this to melt butters, because I didn't want to overheat the oils or use microwave, to lose any of the good qualities of the oils or butters. This method will take longer but it's once every 6 months or longer.
Place large measuring bowl over hot water.
Simply whisk mixture together, minus the essentials oil, until melted.
Add essential oils.
Pour in jar.
Leave uncovered until completely cool.
Massage a pea size into hands or feet.
Use what you have at home, or what you can afford in store or online. Try different ratios and types of butters, oils & essential oils.
(Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. I do not guarantee results. This works for me, I hope it helps you as well. Please do a skin test, to make sure that you do not have a reaction to any of the oils or butters.)
This is my first experience with Herbal Essences Naked, a cleansing conditioner. Herbal Essences Naked is made in the USA, distributed by Procter & Gamble. A one-step cleansing conditioner is a bonus in my eyes. Who has time or wants to shampoo and then condition? I don't.
What it does: Cleanses your hair, without stripping your hair. Which is great if you have thick or coarse hair, like I do. If you have fine hair this may not work for you but who knows it may. Cleans away all of the product, dirt & oil that is on your scalp and hair.
Scent: Peppermint scented, which is not overpowering at all. It does contain peppermint oil, which creates a slight tingle, on your scalp. It is not overwhelming at all.
Texture: Very thick and creamy. White in colour.
Price: On amazon.ca $6.99. It does go on sale from time to time.
Does a great job cleaning the hair and scalp.
Hair is very moisturized, not greasy, and soft.
The detangling is not that great. If you have super curly or kinky-textured hair you may have to use an additional detangler.
It is not perfectly natural but if that is not on the top of your list, give it a try.
