I have selected lavender essential oil. You can also choose other scents such as rosemary, peppermint, orange, lemon, sage, clove, cinnamon, or vanilla. Essential oils are usually available in the organic nature aisle of grocery stores. Moreover, you can also check with GNC or Vitamin World.

This body butter is amazing for skin and hair. Next time, I shall try adding mango butter. Its completely organic and natural. Try it. You will be surprised.
