Body Butter Bars

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!

    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
