I love knowing exactly what is in products I put in my body as well as those that I use on my body. This simple formula is wonderful for any time of the year, but I find it especially useful during the dry winter months. It is fun and easy to make and takes only a three easily sourced ingredients; all available through sites like Amazon.


  • ¼ cup unrefined cocoa butter
  • ¼ cup unrefined shea butter
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil


Melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler on the stove. When melted, remove from the heat. Wait 5 minutes and then pour into tall-sided bowl. Add the shea butter and grapeseed oil. Whip with a handheld mixer until creamy and smooth.That’s it! Store in a lidded jar. It typically will keep for up to six months if stored in a cool, dry spot. You can add essential oils if you like, but I like mine as is.
