A few thoughts for a lazy Saturday when I will probably end up lying on the couch cuddling a small dog...
Susanna Originals has put up a few variations on the body butter recipe that I encourage you to read! Wow! Those sound nice and decadent! Susan - get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which e-book I can send you!

Please reconsider the way you're using the word "safe". It doesn't mean that it won't make you break out or that people with allergies will not have a reaction. It means that you can use it at the level that is suggested without ill effects. And again, I must re-iterate that every ingredient I use on this blog is safe as used! (As for comedogenicity, you'll have to see how you react to ingredients and keep a record, because the comedogenicity ratings really aren't that accurate.)
Want to know more about the chemistry of moisturizers? Check out this great infographic at Compound Interest!
And finally, check out this article at the Telegraph! A study is suggesting that free radicals might be essential for keeping skin young by encouraging regeneration! Which means we could be doing damage by using too many anti-oxidizing products! Eeek! Now, this is only a study on mice, so it might not be applicable to human skin, but it is something to think about, eh? (I have to point out that this article isn't well written and has some science wrongness to it, but I think the idea is interesting...)
