Luxurious Whipped Body Butter (with cacao butter!)
Want to know what my all-time favorite skin moisturizer is?
Cacao Butter For Skin
Cacao butter is the fat source that gives chocolate it’s signature, melt-in-your-mouth consistency.
The certified-organic cacao butter from Wilderness Family Naturals is simply delightful. It smells deeply of rich chocolate, yet is a light beige color.
The “by-product” of making raw cacao powder, cacao butter is the oil that is pressed out of the cacao nib. WFN’s Cacao Butter is unrefined and is never exposed to chemicals or solvents. It is neither roasted nor exposed to high heat, so it is truly raw. It’s excellent for cooking and slathering on your skin.
Using cacao butter for skin will reap you 2 benefits:
Your skin will be soft and silky, and you’ll also smell like irresistible chocolate!
Luxurious Whipped Body Butter With Cacao Butter
It is amazingly simple to turn hard chunks of raw cacao butter into a fluffy and silky whipped body butter that sinks into skin in a matter of minutes.
Just melt the ingredients, cool them down, and whip until they look like delicious whipped cream.
Use different fats, like rich shea butter, switch up the fragrance with essential oils, or even spice your whipped body butter up with cinnamon or nutmeg. The variations are endless!
- If the oils don't change consistency for a while once you start whisking, the mixture might not be cold enough. Place it in refrigerator for a few more minutes and try again.
- I use beeswax in the summer only. It helps the whipped body butter to keep its fluffy consistency longer.
- I use refined beeswax because unrefined wax smells a little too strong for me. You can use your preferred beeswax.
