There is something very relaxing and satisfying about making your own natural skin care products. Leona makes it so easy by creating DIY Natural Beauty Product Kits. Sam at Feeling Fit tested Leona’s DIY Natural Body Butter Kit. It is so easy to create quality body butter using this kit.
Some of you may remember that I have made my own body butter in the past using shea butter, coconut oil, and other oils such as jojoba. Leona’s kits make it even easier. The kits feature pre-measured portions of quality ingredients. Leona uses organic, natural, fair-trade and sustainable ingredients. The kits also contain detailed instructions.
Leona offers a few different kits including lip balm, hand cream and body butter. I had the opportunity to try out the body butter DIY kit.

My Review of Leona DIY Body Butter Kit:
I have made my own body butter using similar ingredients before I received this kit. I can see there are a couple situations where this kit from Leona would be loved:
1. A new crafter who would like to learn to make their own body butter in a way that nearly ensures success. Due to the pre-measured ingredients and the detailed instruction this kit is nearly fool-proof.
2. As a creative gift idea for someone who appreciates natural, fair trade, sustainable products. Extra points if this person also enjoys crafting handmade items or you think they might like to try.
You can learn to make your own body butter by using this kit. It contains pre-measured portions of coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and lavender essential oil. The ingredients appear good quality, based on my experience with having worked with coconut oil, she butter, and jojoba oil.
The detailed instruction sheet walks you through each step. It is very easy to follow. Yes, I have made body butter before, but I actually made this while recovering from a minor concussion. I found it relaxing and non-stressful. I think a beginner would do fine following these instructions.
The resulting body butter is mild, soothing and of good quality. It is handy that the kit includes an empty plastic pot just the right size for the butter. The user can take this knowledge to later make their own without the kit. All you need to do is pay attention to the ratios used and make a note. You can use that information to replicate body butter in any quantity you want in the future.
The body butter kit comes in an attractive cardboard box. Within the box, the ingredients, instruction sheet and empty 4-ounce tub are packed with a grass or straw-like material. The packing material is a little dusty, but easily cleaned and may appeal to someone with more natural preferences. You could present the box as is or easily wrap it for gift presentation.
I was pleased with the experience making body butter using this kit and with the resulting body butter. I think this is a great gift idea for someone who prefers natural, sustainable products that they can feel good about.
