Lovely Natural Oils & Butters!
Natural oils & butters have taken over the beauty world. The market is saturated with old favorites and new discoveries. As consumers we are guaranteed something new at any given moment. Here on Bonjour Mimi, I aim to share my personal experience with some of these raw materials.
The difference between “natural”, “wild-crafted”, and “organic” are also covered on the blog. These terms may cause some confusion but it is important to know what they mean. Choosing the right products means doing the work. Research is an obligation, especially if you experience sensitivities or allergies. For example, taking certain medications may prevent free use of certain essential oils. The articles will provide such important pieces of information.
My supply of natural butters has grown over the years. Gradually, I added new saturated fats to my homemade formulations. I wasn’t interested in overstocking my shelves. However, I did make a purchase every once in a while. I didn’t want to be overwhelmed by too many raw materials that did have expiration dates. Quality and cost were usually intertwined – higher quality usually meant higher cost. Samples made my discovery process much easier. Again, I did the research whenever it was possible.
I’ll do my very best to share, educate, and involve my readers in the process. My favorite natural oils and butters are a large part of the health and beauty categories. I am not a naturopathic doctor nor am I a botanist. I always encourage my readers to do their own research before using any new products. I’m here to share my own experiences. Hopefully, this will help you discover healthier lifestyle alternatives.
