cocoa butter pepermint

I love making my own body care products.  My last batch of body cream was made using a base of Shea Butter. Check out my YUMMY recipe for that here.  I have always wanted to make some out of cocoa butter.  I had heard that cocoa butter makes your skin really smooth and soft. UMMMMM YES IT DOES! I am SO happy with the results!  This Cocoa Butter Peppermint Body Cream is one of the richest, luxurious blends that I have ever made/ tried.  The recipe is easy follow, easy to make, and will WOW you too!

Here’s what you need to make 4oz:

Here’s what you do:

  1. Using a double-boiler, melt the cocoa butter, coconut oil,  and beeswax.  Stir to incorporate well.
  2. Take off the heat.
  3. Add in the sweet almond oil and the Young Living Essential Oil. Stir to incorporate.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool completely. I refrigerate the mixture for about an hour or so.
  5. Allow the mixture to return back to room temperature.
  6. Using a hand blender, whip the mixture until the consistency resembles a loose frosting.  After whipping, the oils will harden a bit again, so be careful not to whip it too much- 3-4 minutes or so.

Enjoy!  Stay soft and smooth!
