Coconut Oil Always use a virgin cold-pressed oil, organic is best, to make sure that all the nutrients and beneficial properties are intact. Coconut oil’s antioxidant properties protect the skin from free radical damage and because it’s so full of essential fatty acids, it also helps to build and strengthen skin-cell structures. This keeps the skin’s connective tissues strong and supple, which helps to prevent sagging and wrinkles. It’s also easily absorbed into the skin.
Sweet Almond Oil is an emollient – in that it smooths and softens skin more than hydrates it. It’s full of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant and great skin protector and healer. It’s easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue.
Cocoa Butter Cocoa butter is a rich emollient, it leaves your skin buttery soft. It contains fatty acids which help to retain moisture and build elasticity and also has properties which can help ease dermatitis or rashes. And did we mention it smells like chocolate! Just like your oils, you want to choose a raw, cold-pressed butter – free of chemicals that are used in bleaching and refining butters.
- 1 cup cocoa butter
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sweet almond oil
- In a bain-marie, melt down your hard butters and oils until fully liquid
- In a bowl, blend together the melted butters with all of the oils and set in the freezer to harden, about 20 minutes. If it’s too soft, it won’t whip up! If it’s too hard, it won’t whip up. Freeze it until it’s a semi-solid mush, you’ll know when it’s ready!
- Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, whip it up using an electronic whisk, a food processor with a whisk attachment, until you have created fluffy white clouds
- Spoon it into a clean jar or container. It will keep for months.
