Extra rich body butter is perfect to remedy dry skin in autumn and winter!
Homemade body butter
The base for this beauty DIY is made with cacao butter and shea butter that help to keep the skin moisturized and protect it from drying out. Apricot kernel oil, which is rich in vitamins A and E and said to have positive effects on skin ageing, and jojoba oil, which can reduce acne, eczema and sunburns, further boost the nourishing effect.
The body butter is ideal to smooth rough elbows, knees, or even feet. You can use it on the entire body, but we recommend to skip the face. And if you’re looking for a thoughtful homemade gift for your girlfriends, fill the body butter into small jars and gift them decorated with our free printable labels, which you can download at the end of this post.

How to use the rich body butter
It’s best to use body butter at room temperature. Apply a small amount of body butter to any part of your body and gently rub into your skin in circular motions. As the body butter is so rich, even a small amount goes a long way.
Storage and shelf life
Store the extra rich body butter in an airtight container in a cool place or the fridge. The body butter can be kept for up to 6 months.
Print the gift labels
Print the labels on DIN A4 or letter size sticker paper or self-adhesive paper and cut out along the grey outline. Remove the backing of the paper and adhere to the designated lid or container. The labels come in different size giving you many options when choosing a jar or container.
