Our 4 ounce aura butter is 100% natural and is made from a mixture of sweet almond oil, Shea butter, soy, vitamin E and essential oils. It is solid in the jar but liquefies when it comes into contact with warm skin. A pea sized portion is all that is needed to soften dry skin anywhere but your face or sensitive areas. For a massage apply ½ teaspoon into palms, liquefy and massage as usual. In hot weather if the butter gets soft it can be stored in the refrigerator.
