There are so many DIY body butter recipes out there, but we think our recipe really hits the nail on the head. It deliberately avoids hassle and hard to find ingredients making it easy to make. Besides, making Body butter yourself ensures there are no chemicals and is far more interesting than buying it – plus this will last you AGES!
There is a great alternative you can buy on Amazon for just under $8, if you like the theory but not the DIY. It’s by Village naturals and is great for helping excess cellulite. You can find it here: Vanilla and Cinnamon Body Butter.
Now onto our cellulite busting body butter – What’s in it and why?
Cinnamon has some rather unexpected qualities. It’s a proven antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial substance. Doesn’t just go great on cakes!
It also has astringent properties similar to that of Witch Hazel, (you can read our article on Witch Hazel here) that means it helps firm skin, and clear blemishes. It’s perfect for areas of high cellulite because its astringent properties help tighten those areas.
Cinnamon is rich in benefiting minerals like Iron, calcium and Magnesium that help keep skin healthy.
Furthermore, cinnamon actually helps local blood circulation and consequently helps spread the distribution of cellulite making it the perfect addition in a body butter. It helps remove blood impurities reducing inflammation and is also recommended for acne. It’s quite possibly the ultimate cellulite busting ingredient to ever go into a body butter! We’ve also added Witch Hazel, again it’s primarily because of it’s astringent properties, and also it’s abiltiy to hydrate the skin for extensive time periods, that it makes the cut for this exclusive recipe.
We also included Vitamin E, which is the go to remedy for acne and operation scars. It’s known for reducing the harsh appearance of scars and so it makes a great addition to a cellulite body butter where those areas are often accompanied by stretch marks and pimpled skin.
So here’s our method for making homemade Cinnamon body butter for Cellulite:
Use the body butter generously, and apply up to three times a day. You should be able to get some good results after a month of so. Additionally, massaging the affected area of cellulite helps to increase blood flow and also to help reduce any excess build up by distributing the cells evenly.
Need something to put this cellulite busting body butter recipe in?
We use these retro looking glass jars that seal for freshness! In fact, they’re pretty good for anything and cheap too, but we use them just because it doesn’t clutter our cupboards and it makes recipes look far better! I don’t think we’d make it if it had to go in a bowl with kitchen foil and the like! What else could we put our cellulite body butter in!
