Whipped Oat Milk Body Cream

I make a lot of body butters and I love them, because they work really well for skin especially during winter.

Usually I make creams & lotion for myself, son and family. I’ve taken classes, I’ve read a lot of books online and off and I still do, I’ve tried out a bunch of recipes and formulated a lot of recipes as well, and  just tying to figure out exactly what ingredients I like and what actually works for my skin.
