I have always been accident prone and it continues into my 40's.  I have this habit of sitting on one foot, or sitting cross legged.  I know in my mind this is not good for me or my posture.  I always end up with my foot going to sleep, then I get up and try to walk.  This is not good to do when you can't feel your foot.
I get up and try to walk and I end up twisting my ankle like I did just a couple of days ago.  OUCH!

Whipped Body Lotion!

Stop the Presses!!!!! 

 This morning I blogged about Whipped Body Butter (click here for that recipe)...the recipe that I made last night.  This was definitely a butter like consistancy.  It felt a little more greasy, but it worked.  I still love it, but not as much as I love the Whipped Body Lotion that I made for my Sister and I today.  She has been a lot like me and has used the Salves, with the coconut oil and beeswax she loved them and wanted to make a bunch of small jars for her to add essential oils as needed.  I convinced her to wait until she tried the Whipped that I was making today.  SHE IS HOOKED!  

Whipped Body Butter

In the last few days, there have been a few posts from other bloggers on Body Butters.    I tried on of them with a few adjustments.   I love a good body butter.  At first when I melted the ingredients then put them in the fridge for a while and started mixing, I didn't think it would come together....but after about 4 minutes of whipping with a hand mixer I had what looked like a creamy cloud!    I am in love!  I made a pretty big batch then split it up into different containers to use different essential oils.  My favorite is the Peppermint Cloud.  It feels and smells so good.  My Mom's favorite is the Rosewood and Sandalwood with a few drops of Rose Absolute.   I also made another jar to put on my feet at night that has Lavender & Vetiver!

You have to remember, this is a BODY BUTTER, so it takes a while to soak in..not like a lotion that can soak in immediately, but with the cold weather, brings chapped skin and this would be a great thing to use.
You can even make enough for you and have some leftover for gifts!

Look at this cloud like creamy wonder!

I think I almost prefer this over my salves that I have been making for so long!  You can add any oils that you want.  I will give you a few ideas at the end of this post, but you will not be disappointed!
