READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 10 oz


  • 4
    ounces cocoa butter, scented (deodorized)
  • 6
    ounces virgin coconut oil
  • 1
    teaspoon cornstarch
  • 5 -7
    ml mandarin essential oils (cold pressed) (optional)


  • Grate or shave the cocoa butter to help it melt faster and more evenly.
  • Melt the cocoa butter slowly on low heat or in a double boiler.
  • Once the cocoa butter is melted, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Stir in the virgin coconut oil. (The heat from the cocoa butter will melt the coconut oil.).
  • Once the mixture starts to solidify, whip it with an electric hand mixer.
  • While beating, sift the cornstarch over the mixture.
  • Continue to beat.
  • Add in the essential oils if desired.
  • Continue to beat until light, fluffy and cool.
  • This can range from 5 minutes up to 15 minutes depending on how warm your mixture is to begin with and the ambient room temperature.
  • Package in pretty 4 oz plastic jars or plastic bail jars.
