Lavender

All body butters are super-moisturizing, of course, but the side benefits change with the specific oils and "flavors" that are added. The appeal of body butter made with lavender oil has more to do with its aromatherapeutic properties than with physical benefits to your skin. Lavender is hailed in the aromatherapy world for being a stress and anxiety reliever, so reach for lavender body butter if you need a little relaxation along with your moisturization.
