A beautiful easy homemade moisturising cream! By making this at home you can easily customise it to your own liking. For a more liquid mixture add more coconut oil, and personalise the scent with your favourite essentials oils.


  • 50g Cacao Butter
  • 50 to 100mls coconut oil (Liquid)
  • Optional: 30 to 50 drops of your favourite Essential Oils! Talk to our Naturopaths in store to make sure your choices are safe for skin


  1. Chop the solid Cacao Butter until the chunks are pretty even
  2. Heat in a very low-heat bain-marie until the Cacao Butter is just turning liquid
  3. Now add the Coconut oil and remove from the heat.
  4. Cool the mixture until it’s a fudgey texture but not completely rock hard.
  5. Whip the mixture until it’s creamy white, then add your essential oils, and gently mix again.
  6. Use a knife or soft spatula to transfer your mixture into a cute jar!
