DIY Coconut Body Butter


1/2 cup grated cocoa butter

2 tablespoons grated beeswax (a natural preservative)

4 tablespoons coconut oil

4 tablespoons jojoba oil or apricot kernel oil (or 2 tablespoons of each oil)


Place all of the ingredients above into an oven-safe glass bowl over a bowl of simmering, not boiling, water.  (This is my favorite shop to buy these ingredients online.) Making sure the water is not touching the bottom of the glass bowl, gently stir and melt the ingredients together until combined.  Carefully pour the hot mixture into a heat-safe, resealable jar and allow to cool completely.
