I have such a hard time finding a hand cream or lotion that I really like. With so many choices available commercially, this might seem a bit baffling. There are literally hundreds to choose from. Don’t believe me? Walk into any drugstore and you will be met with countless choices. The problem is that many of these products are made with petroleum based formulas that I just don’t like. They’re sticky, don’t absorb well or leave my hands feeling greasy. Not to mention the manufacture of petroleum is just plain terrible for the environment and not sustainable.
One of my favorite (and most simple) recipes from Marie is her Perfect Body Butter Bars and they are just that- Perfect! I’ve probably made these bars three times since I found the recipe about a month ago. I give them as gifts and keep them for myself. One friend, very lovingly, refers to them as “hockey pucks” because of the shape I make them in. When I give them to friends I’m always asked for more.
And what’s not to love about these cute little bars? They have a heavenly cocoa butter smell, they’re easy to whip up (10 minutes!), only 3 ingredients, super convenient and you can’t really put too much on!
