I love sugar scrubs. Not only do they exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and promote smooth, glowing skin, they’re also incredibly easy to make. A gentler alternative to sea salt scrubs, this best natural sugar scrub recipe with murumuru butter is formulated to moisturize dry, maturing and eczema prone skin.

Keeping It Natural with Essential Oils

Rather than use a fragrance oil for this sugar scrub recipe, I chose to scent mine with essential oils to keep this product entirely natural. With a variety essential oil blends on the market to choose from, including a fall inspired pumpkin spice essential oil blend, you can create, use and gift this best natural sugar scrub recipe year round.

As I have fibromyalgia, my favorite essential oil blend to use in my natural sugar scrub recipe is Spark Naturals Amend +. This potent warming essential oil blend is the perfect choice for athletes or for anyone suffering from acute muscle or joint pain. Formulated using a blend of Birch, Rosemary, Marjoram, Frankincense, Black Pepper, Peppermint, Basil, Cedarwood, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Roman Chamomile, and Sandalwood, this natural proprietary essential oil blend supports muscle and joint pain relief.

Natural Ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest

I’ve also been experimenting a lot lately with natural products and exotic ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon forest. Therefore, I chose to incorporate one such ingredient into this natural sugar scrub recipe. And for good reason. The quality and skin care benefits of these sustainably source ingredients has just been amazing. So, as it was when I first fell into soapmaking, I have become addicted to these new found beauty butters and carrier oils.

For this particular natural sugar scrub recipe, I chose to use murumuru butter.

What Is Murumuru Butter?

Murumuru is a funny little word. It’s also a very hairy tree! The Astrocaryum murumuru tree is a palm tree native to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. One of the most dominant trees in the region, the murumuru tree yields nutritious edible fruits essential to the local food economy. In addition, the seeds and the wood from these trees also play an important economic role. Hammocks are constructed from the fibers of the murumuru tree, while the seed pods are used to make naturally colored black rings. The seeds themselves yield highly emollient and moisturizing murumuru butter which is commonly used to soften and protect hair.

Mumumuru butter is naturally glossy. It’s also film-forming. This gives this butter the ability to protect both skin and hair in a similar way as silicone. It is rich in lauric, myristic, and oleic acids, which makes murumuru butter less prone to rancidity. While this butter not only nourishes and strengthens hair, it also helps to maintain curls. As murumuru butter won’t clog pores, it’s also wonderful option for dry skin. Due to its amazing beauty benefits, murumuru butter is commonly found in commercial creams, lipsticks, soaps and deodorants at a usage rate of up to 8%.

Natural Sugar Scrub Recipe with Murumuru Butter

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. unrefined murumuru butter
1.5 oz. organic virgin coconut oil
.5 oz. emulsifying wax
10 oz. white granulated sugar
2 mL essential oil or essential oil blend, of choice

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this natural sugar scrub recipe. Begin by weighing out the murumuru butter, virgin coconut oil and emulsifying wax. Combine the ingredients in a double boiler, then gently heat until melted. Stir to combine. Then remove from heat.

(If you are allergic to coconut oil, or prefer not to use coconut oil for your own personal reasons, you may substitute it with another carrier oil of your choice. To learn more about the properties and benefits of carrier oils in skin care, I recommend the book, Carrier Oils: A Beginner’s Guide to Using Over 40 Carrier Oils in Bath and Beauty Recipes, by Cari Dunn.)

While the murumuru butter, coconut oil and emulsifying wax are melting, weigh out the granulated sugar. Set aside.

Allow the melted butter, oil and wax mixture to cool slightly. Then using a graduated transfer pipette, add 2 mL of your preferred essential oil, or essential oil blend, to the liquid ingredients. (Keep reading for easy essential oil blend recipes to try!) Stir well to combine.

Now combine the liquid ingredients for this natural sugar scrub recipe with the dry sugar. Using a fork, mix the wet and dry ingredients together until all of the sugar is evenly coated. Then spoon the sugar scrub evenly into thick walled PET amber jars of your choice. (I sourced my jars from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.) This natural sugar scrub recipe with murumuru butter yields enough product to fill the equivalent of three 4 oz. jars.   

Easy Seasonal Essential Oil Blend Recipes

For fall I love this natural pumpkin essential oil blend. Or, if you prefer to create your own pumpkin spice essential oil blend, simply combine 2 parts cinnamon essential oil, 2 parts ginger essential oil, 2 parts nutmeg essential oil, 1.5 parts clove essential oil and .5 parts cardamom essential oil.

In the winter, I enjoy using straight peppermint essential oil. However you can also blend equal parts spearmint and peppermint essential oils for a refreshing winter mint blend.

Or, easy essential oil blends for spring or summer include equal parts lavender and peppermint, equal parts lavender and lemon essential oils or equal parts lemongrass and peppermint essential oils. I also really love blending equal parts of lemongrass and basil essential oils as well as equal parts patchouli and peppermint.

If you’re new to essential oils, an easy way to get started is with the book, Essential Oils Natural Remedies: The Complete A-Z Reference of Essential Oils for Health and Healing. Or try the book, Aromatherapy for Beginners: The Complete Guide to Getting Started with Essential Oils, for over 150 essential oil recipe ideas and blends.

If you prefer a fragrance oil over using essential oils, the pomegranate noir fragrance oil from Paris Fragrances is a great scent choice as it complements the natural fragrance of the unrefined virgin coconut oil. Simply use up to .15 oz. of this fragrance oil by weight in lieu of the 2 mL of essential oil called for in my natural sugar scrub recipe.

Kick Your Severely Dry Skin (And Eczema!) to the Curb with Ucuuba Butter! This homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe is a natural holistic solution to dry, itchy skin and eczema. Learn what makes this winter skin care recipe so special and how to craft your own.

Cold weather is on the way. And typically, that means you can expect dry skin in your near future. However, if you already suffer from dry skin, or if you have eczema, winter can seem a little unbearable. There’s nothing worse than fighting with your skin and not being to find a product that brings relief. If this scenario seems familiar to you, don’t worry. There is a way to save your skin this winter. All you need are a few simple ingredients from Paris Fragrances.

Ever Feel Like Your Moisturizer Is Irritating Your Dry, Itchy Skin Even More?

I’m one of those people that loathes putting on lotion. Often times, when my skin is especially dry, it feels like I’m applying lotion every hour. While it’s amazing when first applied, a short time later I’m wondering if it’s actually making my skin’s condition worse. So I’m always particular about knowing exactly what I’m putting on my skin – and especially what the ingredients are.

Ingredients matter. And it’s not just the ingredients that you find in a product. It’s also about the ingredients NOT in a product. That’s part of the reason I prefer making my own natural skin care products. Not only is it easy to keep my own products simple, I often find that they are also more effective than store bought brands. Plus, because I know exactly what’s going into my skin care recipes, I don’t have to worry about being surprised by an allergy to a product.

My homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe is the perfect skin care solution for winter. This multi-use product works like an in-shower moisturizer as well as a gentle body scrub. However, it can also be used as a conditioning salt bath in warm bath water. Using this ucuuba butter salt scrub in your shower locks in the moisture from the water while your pores are open. So skin feels moisturized longer. And it also feels protected against the elements.

This homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe is a natural holistic solution to dry, itchy skin and eczema. Learn what makes this winter skin care recipe so special and how to craft your own.

What Is Ucuuba Butter?

Ucuuba butter is an exotic butter native to Central and South America. Like other exotic body butters, ucuuba butter is cold pressed from the seeds of the tree its sourced from. In this case, that would be the Ucuuba tree. As the seeds of the ucuuba tree are rich in fats, extracts of the oil is often as high as 50% of the weight of the dry seeds.

The ucuuba tree is a fast growing tree found in the Brazilian Amazon Forest. As these trees can grow as much as ten feet over the course of just two years, it makes ucuuba butter a highly sustainable product.

The natural unrefined butter from this tree’s seeds is typically yellow to brown in color and has a natural odor reminiscent of nutmeg. Like cocoa butter, ucuuba butter is solid at room temperature. However it has a somewhat higher melting point of 127°F, whereas cocoa butter melts between 93°-100°F. Similarly to cocoa butter, ucuuba makes a wonderful addition to homemade soaps, hair care products and skin care recipes.

Skin Care Benefits of Ucuuba Butter.

Ucuuba butter has natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. This makes it an ideal addition to skin care recipes formulated for dry skin, acne and eczema. Additionally, this natural butter is also rich in essential fatty acids that can help to replenish and moisturize dry or maturing skin. It also contains both vitamin C and vitamin A (retinol) commonly found in natural anti-aging products. These proponents can help to reduce the visible signs of aging as well as replenish and reverse skin damage.

Where to Purchase Ingredients.

I used ingredients from Paris Fragrances to craft my homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe. Paris Fragrances offers quality products with great prices. As a partner with HSCG, Paris Fragrances works with ethical suppliers to help create a sustainable and environmentally friendly economy with the communities living in the Amazon Forest. Additionally, Paris Fragrances is also a member of The Handcrafted Soap and Cosmetics Guild.

All of the products from Paris Fragrances are imported from Europe and South America, with emphasis on exotic Brazilian fragrances. The oils and butters, which are sustainably sourced from the Brazilian Amazon Forest, are cold pressed and left unrefined so they retain their natural benefits when use in skin care formulations.

About My Ucuuba Butter Salt Scrub Recipe.

I’ll be honest. If you are one of those people that likes exiting your shower squeaky clean, my homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe is probably not going to be your cup of tea. While this homemade scrub is similar in ways to most salt scrubs, it’s also very different.

Rather than using sea salt for my homemade ucubba butter salt scrub recipe, I use Dead Sea salt instead. A luxury cosmetic salt, Dead Sea salt is extracted from the marshes of the Dead Sea then solar dried. Its fine grain and moisture content make it especially suited for bath salt and body scrub recipes.

Considered to be the best therapeutic salts available, Dead Sea salt is rich in natural minerals that include magnesium, potassium, sulfur and calcium. These minerals work to help improve blood circulation as well as cleanse, disinfect and exfoliate skin. As a home remedy, Dead Sea salt has shown to benefit those who suffer from a variety of skin ailments including acne, eczema and psoriasis as well as dry, itchy skin and atopic dermatitis.

Unlike traditional sea salt, such as the type of salt you may use for cooking, Dead Sea salt is incredibly hydrating. And, similar to Epsom salt, it is able to soothe sore muscles and calm inflammation that is often associated with both rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.

Another key difference in my ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe lies with ucuuba butter’s hydrating properties. As ucuuba butter, along with the combination of the other natural ingredients included in this recipe, are such rich moisturizers, the oils and butters don’t fully rinse off in the shower. So, once you step out of the shower and towel off, remnants of these ingredients are left on your skin reducing, or eliminating, the need to apply an after shower moisturizer. Your skin will not only feel soft and smooth, it will also look healthier with each use.

In addition to ucuuba butter, this recipe is also crafted using andiroba oil. Renowned by native Indians for its healing properties, andriroba oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help to soothe skin inflammation, itching and rashes. (Learn more about andriroba oil here.)

This homemade ucuuba butter salt scrub recipe has a rich natural fragrance that is lovely solo. However, if a fragrance oil is desired, this scrub pairs well with both Paris Fragrances sandalwood fragrance oil and their seasonal Halloween pumpkin fragrance oil.

Once the ucuuba butter salt scrub has cooled, mix the scrub again to break up the salt grains. Then spoon the scrub into your desired container(s.)

Natural ingredients matter. Whether it’s the food you eat or the beauty products you use, it’s important to know that you’re giving your body the best care possible. With Nature’s Way products from iHerb, I know I’m using ingredients that I can trust. So I recently used a collection of all natural Nature’s Way products to craft five simple, natural beauty recipes that you can make at home!

My roommate, Bambi, and I have very different views when it comes to self care. She enjoys cooking, while I enjoy crafting. We do agree on one thing though. We care for our skin using only quality, natural beauty products. Being on a budget, however, this sometimes means choosing between our favorite beauty products and our must have food supplements. With iHerb we don’t have to choose.

All of my favorite Nature’s Way ingredients are offered through iHerb. Because they’re food grade, Bambi gets to cook with whatever’s leftover. This is, of course, after I’m done getting crafty in her kitchen. It’s a win win for both of us.

While I think Nature’s Way Beet Root Powder is a tasty natural colorant for lip balms, Bambi enjoys throwing it into her red velvet cake mix for both color and a bit of extra sweetness.

I also finally got her hooked on cooking with turmeric more often. (Which I didn’t think was possible.) Nature’s Way turmeric powder makes a wonderful addition to her curry dishes. On the other hand I love using turmeric in my anti-aging skin care recipes.

I couldn’t believe how much more bright and fragrant Nature’s Way standardized turmeric powder was compared to my usual brand. It’s kind of funny because the other day I made a turmeric acne treatment stick for our adult acne. Then Bambi comes home and uses the same turmeric that evening in an amazing Egyptian dish we had for dinner.

Having never shopped online with iHerb before, I was pretty thrilled by how easy it was to register for an account. As you can sign up using one of your social media accounts, it means one less password you have to remember. I also really like that they offer multiple shipping options. Sometimes I need ingredients for my natural beauty recipes right away. So having the option for one-day delivery is a lifesaver!

In addition, iHerb sells over 400 Nature’s Way products. So it’s easy to discover new ingredients and keep everyday favorites in stock. However, I was really psyched to learn that they ship their products to over 160 countries. I know that some of my readers have had to make substitutions in my natural beauty recipes in the past. Certain ingredients aren’t always available in every country. By shopping with iHerb, you won’t have to make substitutions for any of the ingredients I use. Additionally, iHerb also offers customer support in ten different languages to make shopping for what you need even easier.

I bought all of the Nature’s Way ingredients I needed for these natural beauty recipes from iHerb. After trying Nature’s Ways products, I am blown away by the quality.

2-in-1 Lip & Blush Beauty Stick Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz. Nature’s Way Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
2 oz. Nature’s Way Beet Root Powder
1 oz. beeswax pastilles

Instructions:

This natural 2-in-1 beauty stick is an easy and all natural way to add a touch of color to your lips and cheeks. The combination of the natural coconut smell from Nature’s Way Extra Virgin Coconut Oil combined with the sweetness from the beet root powder is guaranteed to make this your new favorite lip balm! Plus, it’s so easy to craft! As it requires just three simple ingredients, this is easily one of my favorite all-time natural beauty recipes.

To get started you will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients.

Begin by weighing out the extra virgin coconut oil. Heat the coconut oil in double boiler. Then weigh out and add the Nature’s Way Beet Root Powder

Stir the beet root powder into the coconut oil so it’s combined evenly throughout the melted oil.

Gently heat for an additional five to ten minutes, stirring occasionally, to infuse the color from the beet root powder into the oil.

Now strain the beet root powder from the oil using a fine mesh strainer. (This will keep your beauty stick from feeling grainy.) Return the coconut oil to the double boiler.

Next, weigh out the beeswax pastilles and combine in the double boiler with the coconut oil. Gently heat until the beeswax has fully melted, then stir well to integrate the melted beeswax with the tinted coconut oil.

Carefully pour the mixture into lip balm containers of your choice, then allow to cool before capping. (This natural beauty recipe will yield about six 2-in-1 beauty sticks depending on the size of your containers.)

To use, simply apply to lips or cheeks as desired.

Aloe Hydrating Facial  Mist Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz. Nature’s Way Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
1 oz. witch hazel
24 drops lavender essential oil

Instructions:

With fall on the way, skin tends to dry out more often. If you have maturing skin, keeping your skin hydrated is more important than ever. An easy way to keep your skin from feeling tight and dry is to use a simple aloe hydrating facial mist. This natural beauty recipe not only hydrates skin, it also helps to keep it balanced. So this product is still super beneficial in the summer when skin tends to be oilier.

To make this recipe, simply measure out the Nature’s Way Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and witch hazel and combine in a 4 oz. mister spray bottle. Add the lavender essential oil, then shake well to mix.

To use, simply mist onto your face (and body!) as needed to soothe and refresh skin. Be sure to keep your aloe hydrating facial mist refrigerated between uses. And shake your container prior to each use.

1 oz. beeswax pastilles

12 drops tea tree essential oil
12 drops lavender essential oil
12 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Adult acne is the worst. I mean, it was bad enough when we went through puberty, right? In addition to taking a daily probiotic to help prevent acne, you can also craft this easy turmeric acne treatment stick to tackle breakouts as they happen.

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for this recipe.

Begin by weighing out the Nature’s Way Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil and beeswax pastilles. Combine these ingredients in a double boiler then gently heat until melted.

Remove the double boiler from heat, then weigh out and stir in the Nature’s Way Standardized Turmeric Powder. Add the essential oils then mix again to evenly distribute all of the ingredients throughout the mixture.

Now pour the melted ingredients into lip balm tubes of your choice and allow to cool before capping. (This natural beauty recipe makes around six acne treatment sticks depending on the the size of your container.)

To use your turmeric acne treatment stick, simply apply as a spot acne treatment as needed.

This natural bacuri body butter recipe is the best and only body butter recipe you'll ever need! Formulated to moisturize and nourish dry and maturing skin, this non-greasy bacuri body butter recipe is crafted using three simple ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon forest that possess unique anti-aging skin care properties. So skin looks and feels younger with every use.

Let’s talk about aging.

I was looking at my hands the other day and I thought, OMG. I have crepey skin! I mean, I guess it was bound to happen at some point. No one has yet to figure out how to stop the aging process. (And if someone ever does, I’d like to go back ten years and push the hold button there.)

I’ll admit I’ve been freaking out about this aging thing. My thirties were fine. I’ve always looked younger than I really am anyway. However, my forties are a different story. And with everyone using filters on their facebook and instagram selfies, it feels like we’re supposed to look young regardless of how many years pass. It’s no wonder that being bombarded with these expectations of youth that we begin to feel insecure as we age.

My forties have been more challenging for me than any other decade. So if you’re rounding that bend, please know that you definitely are not alone. I feel like I’ve been spending an insane amount of money on beauty products to try to gain that filtered photo look. And I’m still wrangling with my own inner voice to age gracefully. Unfortunately, I still haven’t found a way to reconcile how I look with how I feel I should look.

I can’t be the only one determined to start a savings account to have my chin (waddle?) sucked out when I hit my mid-50s. Which, incidentally, is how you get those high, defined cheekbones as you age. It all just starts to slide downward and pool under you chin.

I don’t have the answers to boost my self-esteem or yours at the moment. However, I do think it’s important to address aging. Aging happens to everyone. Yet, I think we often feel alone in how we address our own aging process. We struggle with it inwardly instead of joking about it with our inner circle. We try to hide every wrinkle and erase every age spot instead of embracing the new beauty we are becoming. And we are beautiful.

We women, we create life. We bring joy, passion and heart to the world. We love deeply. We live with intent. So what if our tits hang past our bellies and our butts go flat. We are capable of creating magic.

Still, crepey skin straight up sucks. Magical or not. And as our hands seem to be the telltale sign of a woman’s true age, I of course made a recipe for that. Chuckle if you must; my BFF does. But this stuff is the absolute best and only body butter recipe you’ll ever need.

The Best & Only Body Butter Recipe You'll Ever Need (Without Shea Butter OR Coconut Oil!)

The best AND ONLY body butter recipe you’ll ever need.

The secret to this amazing bacuri body butter recipe lies somewhere deep within the heart of the Brazilian Amazon forest. Crafted using three simple ingredients found in Brazil, this natural bacuri body butter recipe is, by nature, a magical product for maturing skin.

Bacuri butter, tucuma butter and brazil nut oil come together in my bacuri body butter recipe to form a nourishing, non-greasy body butter. While I don’t have the answer to the mystery about how these plants came to have so many beneficial skin care properties, what I can say, is that these ingredients have the perfect properties to soothe, nourish and condition aging skin. So not only does skin look youthful, plump and healthy, it also feels that way.

About the ingredients in my bacuri body butter recipe.

What is bacuri butter?

Bacuri butter is the most magical of all beauty butters. A highly emollient and moisturizing butter, this product is derived from the seeds of the fruit that grow on the Bacuri tree. Found in Northern Brazil, where the bacuri fruit is harvested in the wild, this dark brown solid butter is extracted from the seeds through the cold-pressed processing method.

Bacuri butter is a semi-solid with a melting point similar to shea butter. Therefore it makes a suitable substitution for shea butter in any homemade body butter recipes. Unlike shea butter, however, bacuri butter offers more in the way of anti-aging skin care benefits.

Bacuri Butter: The Most Magical of Beauty Butters for Natural Skin Care Recipes. Unravel the mystery behind bacuri butter and discover how this prized beauty butter from the Brazilian Amazon Forest can transform your natural beauty and skin care products. Plus learn how to make a natural bacuri body butter recipe to promote skin health and reduce the appearance of aging.

Bacuri butter is suitable for all skin types, including oily and sensitive skin. It doesn’t feel greasy. Instead, bacuri butter leaves skin feeling velvety smooth upon application. When used in anti-aging skin care formulations, bacuri butter lends the finished product its firming, moisturizing, astringent and soothing skin care properties. Additionally, bacuri butter promotes cellular turnover vital for younger looking skin. It also helps to stabilize skin’s elastin and boost collagen production.

Because bacuri butter has a pleasant, moderately strong natural scent, I chose to leave my natural bacuri body butter recipe unscented. So the natural sweet and earthy scent of bacuri butter shines through. (Learn more about bacuri butter here.)

What is tucuma butter?

Another amazing product sourced from the Brazilian Amazon Forest is tucuma butter. The hard butter in my natural bacuri body butter recipe, tucuma butter comes from the seed of the native Tucuma palm tree. Similar in composition to another Brazilian butter called Murumuru Butter, this butter is also a great ingredient for anti-aging products due to its moisture binding properties and chemical makeup.

Tucuma butter has a natural gloss and is rich in polyphenols and antioxidants that help to combat the free radicals that lead to aging. It’s also rich in essential fatty acids which not only promote cell regeneration, but also help to protect and moisturize dry and maturing skin.

What is brazil nut oil?

Known as para-nut, castania and chestnuts of Brazil, brazil nuts are native to South America and are found primarily in the Brazilian Amazon forest. As the name implies, brazil nut oil is sourced from Brazil nuts and is prized for its emollient and moisturizing skin care properties.

Commonly used in the cosmetic industry as a key ingredient in anti-aging products, brazil nut oil also has anti-free radical and antioxidant properties. It contains 75% unsaturated fatty acids in addition to vitamins A and E. Brazil nut oil is also considered one of the best natural conditioners for damaged and dehydrated hair. (If you are allergic to tree nuts I recommend substituting the brazil nut oil with passion fruit oil in my bacuri body butter recipe.)

Crafted using three simple ingredients from the Brazilian Amazon forest, this natural body butter recipe is non-greasy and contains unique skin care properties that make it the perfect anti-aging body butter!

I’ve been in a creative slump as of late. I’ve been short on supplies. More than that, however, I’ve just been using a lot of the same ingredients over and over in different ways for so long. It kind of becomes uninspiring. If you’re a creator, you’ve likely also hit a similar wall at some point in your own process. So you get what I mean.

In fact, a creative slump was one of the main reasons I stopped selling my homemade soaps on Etsy and at my local farmer’s market. That constant demand for the same exact products over and over. I rarely had a chance to formulate any new homemade soap recipes. Instead I was selling my product downtown five days a week and making soap in the evenings. Then somewhere between all of that there was social media, etsy listings and product shipping. So my creativity extended about as far as swapping out colorants and fragrance oils for the same boring homemade soap recipe.

Recently however I was introduced to an entirely new line of exotic butters and carrier oils by way of Paris Fragrances. Paris Fragrances carries a fantastic line of natural butters and vegetable carrier oils from the Brazilian Amazon Forest. All of these natural ingredients are unrefined, cold pressed and sustainably sourced from the Amazon region of Brazil. They’re also perfect for use in natural skin care and homemade soap recipes!

The Most Magical of All Beauty Butters

With the rise in both artisan and natural skin care products, many of us are now familiar with exotic ingredients from locations like Africa. Shea butter, a natural ingredient used in everything from body butters to soaps, is a major part of Africa’s economy. Known as African Gold, shea butter offers valuable economic opportunities for women and girls.

However, there are lesser known butters from a different region of the world that also have their own unique properties and benefits when used in skin and hair care recipes. Bacuri butter, in particular, comes from the Brazilian Amazon Forest. A somewhat unattractive butter, this natural butter is a dark brown that resembles both the color and consistency of fudge. It also offers some rather amazing skin care benefits. After just one use, bacuri butter was instantly promoted to the most magical of all beauty butters in my natural beauty and skin care arsenal.

Some of my favorite properties of bacuri butter include the fast absorbency rate and its highly emollient and moisturizing properties. I also love bacuri butter’s rich natural color and its anti-fungal and anti-bacterical properties. It’s versatility, both as a natural home remedy and as a quality ingredient in skin care products, also makes it a must for my own home apothecary.

What Is Bacuri Butter?

Bacuri butter is extracted from the seeds of the fruit that grows on the Bacuri tree. These trees are found in Northern Brazil, within the state of Para, where the fruit is harvested in the wild. The dark brown solid butter is then extracted from the seeds for use using the cold-pressed processing method. Bacuri butter has a pleasant, moderately strong natural scent. This natural fragrance is often described as earthy or mossy. However, for me bacuri butter smells sweet and earthy with nutty undertones.

Bacuri butter has a melting point of 95°F which is similar to that of shea butter. The melt point of unrefined shea butter ranges between 89 to 100°F making bacuri butter a suitable substitution in your beauty and body butter recipes. Suited for all skin types, including oily and sensitive skin, bacuri butter leaves skin feeling velvety smooth upon application. It also has firming, moisturizing, astringent, soothing and cell renewal properties when used in your choice of a variety of homemade skin care formulations.

Benefits of Bacuri Butter for Health & Beauty

Bacuri butter offers a number of natural beauty benefits for skin and hair when used in natural beauty recipes. Commonly used in a number of skin and hair applications, bacuri butter is also prized as a natural home remedy for a number of ailments.

Bacuri butter as a natural home remedy.

Traditionally, bacuri butter has been used by the local natives of Brazil as an effective home remedy against both snake and spider bites. It’s also been shown to be an effective  home remedy for treating earaches. Additionally, bacuri butter is also viewed as what is considered a miraculous, indigenous remedy against rheumatism and arthritis. You can also use bacuri butter as a natural insect repellent to protect against insect bites.

When utilized in natural remedies for skin issues, bacuri butter reduces inflammation and redness. It’s also effective at reducing rashes, acne, hyper-pigmentation and scarring. Therefore bacuri butter makes a great addition to natural salves and creams that target acne, rosacea, eczema, scars and stretch marks. It’s also a recommended ingredient for natural pain relief products to help ease muscle pain.

Bacuri butter for natural beauty & skin care recipes.

Bacuri butter has many wonderful properties that make it an especially useful ingredient in skin and hair care applications. Part of this is due to it’s high methionine content. Methionine is an essential amino acid that plays a critical role in the metabolism and health of many species. It’s also a natural source of sulphur – an element crucial for healthy skin, hair and nails.

Due to this amino acid and it’s high tripalmitin (fatty acid) content, bacuri butter is able to help stabilize skin’s elastin and collagen production as well as promote hair and nail growth. Therefore bacuri butter makes a both a beautiful and effective addition to scar treatments and stretch mark creams, anti-aging products, hair masks, cuticle balms, body butters and hair conditioners.

About My Bacuri Butter Body Balm

I’ve been working on several natural skin care and homemade soap recipes formulated with bacuri butter – all of which I’ll be sharing over the coming weeks. In the meantime I wanted to share the first of those recipes with you for my natural bacuri butter body balm. My bacuri butter body balm recipe is formulate with just over one third bacuri butter. It also contains passion fruit oil – an unrefined vegetable carrier oil also from the Brazilian Amazon region.

Like bacuri butter, passion fruit oil oil also has a high content of unsaturated fatty acids. It’s rich in linoleic acid, which aids in the restoration of the lipid layer of the skin. This yields exquisite moisturizing and emollient properties that increase the silkiness of the skin. Soap and skin products that are formulated with passion fruit oil offer a relaxing and anti-stress sensation.

Other ingredients in my bacuri butter body balm recipe consist of jojoba oil (or fractionated coconut oil) and lanolin. The lanolin is added to my body balm recipe for additional skin protection and to help lock in moisture. Additionally, my bacuri butter body balm recipe also contains cera bellina wax, a hydrophilic derivative of beeswax that has the ability to convert oils to gels, and candelilla wax. There is no added fragrance in my bacuri butter body balm. Instead, this simple recipe allows the natural scent of the bacuri butter to shine through.

Other Ways to Use Bacuri Butter

Other than my bacuri butter body balm recipe, another great way to use bacuri butter is simply solo! When applied as is to skin, bacuri butter gives skin a light golden brown sheen. So it’s the perfect substitute for your body bronzer. Especially when your skin is craving a luxe moisturizer.

While bacuri butter can stain clothing, it absorbs quickly and easily. So not only does this butter not feel greasy after application, once absorbed, there’s no longer a risk of it staining clothing. And because a little dab will do you, bacuri butter is extremely cost effective when compared to beauty products that perform a similar beauty benefit. Additionally, bacuri butter also offers some SPF skin protection and works wonderfully as a natural after sun moisturizer.

In addition to direct skin application, bacuri butter is also well suited for hair care. It’s a great natural moisturizer for dark, curly or ethnic hair as it helps to protect hair against external agents.
