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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Method:

  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 half of 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!
