Creams, potions, lubes, massage oils. How many of these have you used on yourself or your lover for Valentines Day? Or use on a regular basis to soften and moisturize?
It’s quite scary how many products on the market contain carcinogenic ingredients, ie. cancer causing ingredients. What’s more scary is that we bask ourselves in these creams and oils and all those chemicals get absorbed through our skin and right into our bloodstream.
And worse yet, we use chemical laden lubes and massage oils on our very-special-and-oh-so-beautiful private parts! Did you know that these generic products actually age your skin!
So what do we do? We make our own!
I whipped up an easy and ‘delicious’ massage butter that is perfect to use for Valentines Day! It won’t age your skin and it does not contain any chemical and toxic ingredients. In fact, it will actually moisturize your precious skin, soothe dryness and lift your sensual senses with sweet and delicate notes from rose and orange essential oil.
Rose otto is such a beautiful oil. It has a positive effect on emotions and helps to lift your spirits!
Sweet orange helps to bring clarity, brighten your mood and is sweetly uplifting.
Cacao butter – real, rich chocolate in it’s purest state. Full of skin soothing nutrients and an incredible emollient.
Coconut oil – loaded with healthy fats that help to moistures and soothe skin. Plus it’s antibacterial and safe to use on all your special spots!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
1 small mason jar
Heat proof bowl to use for double boiler
4 oz. cacao butter or 1 large chunk of cacao butter paste (as you can see in photo)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp ground organic vanilla bean or 8 drops vanilla essential oil
5 drops rose otto essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
Using a double boiler, melt cacao butter. Keep heat to medium and using a spoon, stir the cacao to help melt. Once cacao is almost completely melted, add in coconut oil, vanilla bean, and essential oils. Stir well. Pour mixture into mason jar and leave on counter to cool. *Be careful lifting bowl from double boiler! It’s hot. Be sure to use an oven mitt.
Once butter has cooled, screw on the lid and put in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight to set.
To use, leave out at room temperature to soften for about an hour. Cacao butter and coconut oil are solid at room temperature. Rub a small amount of massage butter between hands to soften the butter.
Now soothe, slather and get busy! 😉
