Today we’ll show you how to make body butter cream at home using Cocoa Butter, Aloe Vera Gel, Saffron, Apricot Kernel Oil and Geranium Essential Oil.

 Cocoa Butter is known for its skin smoothening properties. When used daily, it gives you a glowing, softer and smoother skin.  Aloe Vera gel prevents signs of ageing, reduces tan and moisturizes skin. Saffron makes the skin radiant and has natural skin lightening qualities. Apricot Kernel Oil has anti bacterial and antioxidant properties and provides nutrition and support to the skin so that ageing is reduced. Geranium Essential Oil is good for skin tightening.
