    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    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!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 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)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients, let cool slightly, and pour into decorative molds.
    2. 2
      (Molds do not need conditioning.) Store bars in the refrigerator.
    3. 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
