Five reasons you love our body whips!

It’s busy, busy here in the Shepherds Cottage kitchen, as I’m making up a large wholesale

order of gorgeous body whips for an independent Scottish subscription gift box – it’s so

exciting, and I’ll share more information about them later. In the meantime, I’ve been thinking

about these little tins of loveliness and how much people like using them. Whipped body

butter is one of the first things I started making for Shepherds Cottage, after the soaps. I

have really dry skin, and I needed something that would work after a bath, before bed, when

my hands started to get itchy, or when my legs looked ashy and my heels cracked.

Delightful, I know! It happens to the best of us – and from what you’ve told me, it happens to

most of you. And the whipped body butter makes it better. I might be biased here – I make it,

I use it and I love it, but other people love it too, and here’s why.

5 reasons you love our body whips

1. They are super nourishing

The ingredients in body butters are high in vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids,

which nourish and revitalise your skin, and add a layer of protection against moisture

loss so you have to use them less frequently. They are also richer than body creams

and a little bit goes a long way.

2. The simple ingredients

Body whips contain shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil.

Nothing else: no artificial fragrances, colours or preservatives. Between them, these

luxurious butters and oils can soothe skin irritation, provide moisture, and contribute

to skin elasticity.

3. You can see the effects on your skin

While I can’t say that our body whips are a cure or a medical intervention, I’ve been

told that using them has helped to soothe eczema, rashes, sunburn and psoriasis,

and to reduce stretch marks and lighten scars. All the goodness in the ingredients

helps to improve skin’s elasticity and its over all health, but the act of taking time to

care for your body and show it some love can work wonders, too.

4. No plastic packaging

If reduce, reuse and recycle is your thing, the aluminium tins are a good choice. They

can be washed out and reused at home, but many are given back to me. The

packaging is special: locally sourced and in the case of the wooden label, also made

here on the island.

5. They smell amazing!

I’ve been told my bathroom smells like a spa – with two dogs, two children and a

farmer husband, this is only ever true when we are expecting visitors, but if you’ve

been in there and used the body whip, you certainly will smell lovely. The gorgeous

scents are the first thing people comment on when they open the tins, and the

essential oil blends in the body whips linger on your skin.

The body whips are one of my bestselling products – and many of you have told me why. If

you would like to leave a comment (or compliment!) do so, and I’ll send the first 5 I see a

free sample-size body whip. Have a great week everyone xx
