The perfect massage bar for a special Valentine treat (or any time you need a little TLC)! These are rich and full of vitamin E. Cocoa butter and coconut oil can generally be found at nutrition stores; the decorative molds can be found at craft/hobby stores. And even though the chocolaty aroma of the cocoa butter is very strong, the peppermint, florals, and ylang-ylang give it a beautiful fragrance. Ylang-ylang may be hard to find, but by all means, try it - and remember, a little goes a looooonnnnng way! Also remember to store these in the refrigerator - coconut oil likes to melt easily, but it makes the bars silkier!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup melted cocoa butter
  • 8 vitamin E, capsules punched and contents squeezed out
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 12 drops of your favorite floral essential oils (I like jasmine...)
  • 15 drops of peppermint essential oils
  • 5 drops of ylang-ylang essential oils (or more)


  1. Mix all ingredients, let cool slightly, and pour into decorative molds.
  2. (Molds do not need conditioning.) Store bars in the refrigerator.
  3. They are very"melty", so have a soap dish handy when you need to put down the bar.

I have tried body butters similar to these. They go on thick, but I usually have a pair of socks or cotton gloves handy to take care of that. It also works well as a lip balm. I put my body butter in a small decorative bag and just flip it out when I need it, then close it for further use
