"I took this body butter on holiday with me to Spain. As mosquitos normally consider me a walking buffet, I worry about putting on moisturiser before going out in the evenings for fear of being eaten alive. Citronella is naturally found in Lemongrass so I used this body butter. And it worked. Not only did it soothe my skin after a day in the sun, it keep the blood-suckers at bay. My other half was so impressed he started using it as well! It's also great in the mornings to give you a boost - I absolutely adore the the fresh scent." Colette @Vera-Bee
Just Three Gorgeous Organic Ingredients
Shea butter is one of earth’s wonders! This healing butter penetrates deep into the dermal layers of your skin. Lemongrass helps lift your mood with its anti-depressant properties. And, it also has anti-inflammatory and pain killing benefits. The sweet, citrus fresh scent combined with the nourishing, deeply moisturising benefits of shea butter makes this body butter an all round winner!
Shea butter is the fat that is extracted from the nut from the shea (Karite) tree, mainly grown in West Africa and is the African treatment for skin conditions such as eczema, scarring, stretch marks, sunburn, itching, insect bites & ski n blemishes. Shea butter is the key ingredient in this body butter. With its creamy texture it is a delight to apply to the skin. Scientific investigations have found that shea nut butter does not pose any known or likely allergy risk to consumers, including those with peanut or tree nut allergies.
We use organic and fair trade shea butter which contains naturally occurring vitamins A, E & F, helping to maintain optimum skin health. Improving elasticity and abundant in fatty acids that help with collagen production, to help maintain youthful skin and with its mild SPF (thought to range from 4-6 SPF, naturally), anti-inflammatory properties and ability to reduce skin irritation shea butter is a true skin healer. Shea butter not only works on the surface of the skin, creating a protective barrier but it also penetrates deeply into the dermal layers of the skin to heal within.
Olive oil contains at least four different types of antioxidant: vitamins A and E, polyphenols, phytosterols and avenasterol to help maintain a healthy body. The antioxidants in olive oil work by neutralising damaging free radicals that can lead to skin aging and skin cancer. Chlorophyll is also present in olive oil – a photosynthetic pigment found in plants and algae – the life-giving part of the plant. It is an anti-aging substance that promotes the healing of skin conditions and wounds.
Lemongrass essential oil comes from the tall grass that grows in tropical climates is added to this body butter blend to create something quite wonderful. This fresh and zesty oil gives a gentle citrusy aroma and has a vast array of benefits too. Lemongrass is antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory which renders it yet another healing and calming essential oil. Lemongrass is a popular ingredient for massages due to its anti-inflammatory properties but also because of containing eugenol which is known to have similar effects as aspirin. It can be used to help relieve headaches and migraines as well as muscle and stomach aches. Furthermore, lemongrass is an anti-oxidant which can help fight the free radicals that can wreak havoc on our bodies. It even has antidepressant qualities. Lemongrass is frequently used as natural insect repellent and makes this body butter an excellent holiday companion.
How to use your organic body butter
A little goes a very long way. Honestly, you really don’t need much as body butter is far more moisturising than a cream. Warm in your hands and then rub into skin. We love using this straight after a shower while our skin is still damp for extra moisturising. Truly heavenly.
We also stock these beautiful organic body butters in Orange, Rose Geranium & Patchouli or Lavender. And for an extra treat for your skin, try using together with the Heavenly Organics Organic Orange, Rose Geranium & Patchouli Body Scrub.

About Heavenly Organics
Heavenly Organics Skin Care founder, Mary-Anne created the business after she embraced an organic, vegan lifestyle and desperately struggled to find skincare that met both her ethical and skin’s requirements. Finding that so many products were laden with unnecessary and unpronounceable chemicals, Mary-Anne decided to make her own, just using a few, simple organic and natural ingredients. Friends began to use her skincare and the feedback was so overwhelmingly positive that a new enterprise began. Fast forward to 2019 and still true to its founding beliefs, there are now over 100 products.
Ethics are at the core of what Heavenly Organics do. It’s not only using organic, natural and vegan products that is imperative to them but there’s the bigger picture to consider too. Now so more than ever. With the plastic free and zero waste revolution firmly underway, Heavenly Organics are proud to have been pioneering the way from the start. Not only do they use glass and aluminium containers, they also package all their deliveries in recycled cardboard boxes, recycled card wrapping & paper tape!
