Cocoa butter is used to make chocolate but it's also a very emollient moisturizer. You can use it as a lotion bar too and treat yourself this Valentine's Day! They're great for preventing dry, itchy skin or as a salve for the treatment of chapped lips or burned skin.

DIY Heart Shaped Massage Lotion Bars

The Supplies

- 1 cup raw cocoa butter
- 1/2 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 almond oil
- essential oil (optional)
- heart mold
- air-tight container


The Instructions

Step 1: Melt the butter and oils together in a large bowl. I used a hair dryer. I like using it because it doesn't boil the ingredients. You can melt it on the stove top too.

Step 4: Gently pop them out and store in an airtight container or the refrigerator. The bars will start to melt in your hand if you hold them too long. Enjoy.
