Homemade Body Butter Recipes

The cold dry winter has been hard on my skin, so I went on a mission to find a new recipe for homemade body butter using raw honey as one of the ingredients.

I’ve learned over the years that raw honey is incredible for your skin. It has antibacterial properties and skin-saving antioxidants that nourish your skin and slows down the signs of aging.

Our bees are busy, and it won’t be long before I have an abundance of honey to use. While I wait for the first batch of honey, I’ll be gathering all the supplies I need to make each of the following recipes.
