Feed your skin with our thick, rich, moisturizing body butter. It penetrates deep to give a nourished and rejuvenated look to the skin without being overly greasy. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.

Usage: We recommend that no more than 1% or 10 ml of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

After reading the reviews.. I had to purchase to see for myself. I made a batch adding my fragrance and was totally unhappy. This product did not give much moisture to dry skin. I will be trying the Ultra Premium.. and hope that it is better.

This is a great rich butter cream, even better then the ultra premium one. But since the price has increased by 20%, can't afford this cream anymore. So I have to switch to the lower price(ultra premium) one instead.

Having been disappointed by the texture of the Lavender Blend Butter I had purchased here prior to this, I was a little hesitant to buy others. It is another customer's mention of Body Shop in her review that convinced me to buy this and I am glad: I just used it as is for the first time, and my very irritated hands stopped hurting immediately. (Something that my favorite Body Shop Hemp Butter never managed to do without burning like a mother first.) As it is, the texture is only minimally sticky. MUCH better than any of the commercial body butters I've tried besides Body Shop, AND it even has a neutral taste (yes, these are the lengths I'll go to for a review: you may not want to eat it, but at least if you kiss someone after they just applied it, there will be no bitter faces). I have not yet tried to mix it with my favorite EOs, but I have a feeling I will make very small batches at first in order to keep as much of it as is if my favorite conditioner mix does not work quite as well as a body butter. LOVE! :)

This stuff is fabulous... really fabulous. All I added was some fragrance (not too much). It's perfect - even unscented! Will definitely be purchasing again.

I learned the hard way not to add to much other product. Love it now that I don't play with it quite so much.

Thank you, thank you, thank you New Directions for an AWESOME product. This truly is the best butter body base out there by far at an AMAZING price. My order came yesterday and I made up 6 different scented body butters and put them in the jars I also purchased from New Direction. My customers were absolutely ecstatic. So much so I am going to have to re-order some more to keep up with the demand. You can NOT go wrong with this base. I added an oil of my choice, colorant and scent and that is all this base needed. The reviews from my customers says it all!!!

This is an amazing quality body butter, it's about as thick as vaseline but not greasy!!! I had to cut down on things that I wanted to add to it because it's texture, level of absorption and moisturizing was better than any body butter i've ever used before including the one from the body shop which was my favourite. I tried a bit with mango extract, but I think a little f/o or e/o and maybe a little colour ( it's pure white) is all that should be added if anything. Takes very nicely to Sweet orange e/o and butter cream icing f/o

Absolutely love this body butter base! It's thick and creamy, doesn't dry sticky. Absorbs well but also provides a bit of a barrier like a body butter should. Blends well with EOs.. it's great!

Nice product. Easy to customize (a zip lock bag, some essential oils and even some fruit extracts are all you need) and you're good to go. Its a bit more liquid than your average body butter thou, more like a heavy lotion. It will move around in a container. It also must have a lot of water in it, as it will rust metal jars.

This body butter gives me the convenience I need in making individual personal products for various needs of clients. It works well with essential oils for pain creams or essential oils for skin problems or relaxing oils for body creams. It blends wonderful with the additions of small amounts of base oils and floral waters to make it truly an unique and effective product. I would recommend it for all your needs and it is the best base I have ever tried.

This body butter is amazing. I love mixing some peppermint, bergamot, grapefruit and lemongrass e.o.'s into it. It is so refreshing and it really works. I have always suffered from dry skin in the winter until this year. I've been telling everybody about it.

This body butter did not have the thick heaviness I was expecting...I was hoping for a more rich buttery texture. However, it was good as a cream. It took the scent and colour well. It was easy to work with.

This body butter is wonderful. Maybe you would like to add something to it, but "as is", it leaves the skin hydrated with a delicious very fresh cocoa butter smell. It penetrates well into the skin and is not greasy.
