Body Cream for Extremely Dry Skin

Cocoa Butter is the best thing for my very dry winter skin. Raw cocoa butter (which I found in 1 oz tubes at Dollar General for $1.50) isn’t very creamy, though, so I like to blend it with some other things.

Ingredients

3 oz cocoa butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup olive oil
2 t vitamin E oil
5 drops white fir essential oil
5 drops geranium essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil

Directions

Combine ingredients in a glass jar.
Fill a medium saucepan with a few inches of water and place over medium heat.
Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.
As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into another jar for storage.
