Coconut Body Butter for Dry Skin

Top Review by jypsymama

I love all the ingredients but I'm just not sure what purpose the water serves in this recipe. I've made similar recipes that don't call for water. I did put it in though since it was called for but it didn't blend well and ended up making the whole thing runny and separated. I just dumped the water off and still came away with a lovely balm. I'm giving it to my cousin for her pregnant belly and I'm sure she'll love it! So my advice: omit the water and when you're measuring the cocoa butter and beeswax, pack it down a bit for a thicker consistency.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt beeswax over low heat with the water.
  2. Blend in cocoa butter until smooth.
  3. Slowly mix in oils.
  4. Pour into glass jar.
  5. This lotion will thicken as it cools.
