Organic Chocolate & Orange Massage bar
You are going to love this easy to make organic and all natural massage bar recipe! It can also be used as a body moisturizer. Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E which help soothe, hydrate, and balance the skin. It makes a great gift!
Massage Bar Recipe Ingredients:
1 tablespoon organic refined* Shea butter
1 tablespoon of organic cocoa butter
1 tablespoon of organic Apricot kernel oil (or your favorite carrier oil)
1 tablespoon of organic beeswax pellets
20 drops tangerine or sweet orange essential oil
*You can use raw Shea butter which contains more vitamins and minerals than the refined Shea butter but I am not a big fan of the nutty smell. Organic Refined Shea butter is my personal favorite. I recommend avoiding any other lower grade than refined (below Grade B) as it will affect the level of vitamin content and is extracted by solvent such as hexane.
1-Melt butter, oil and beeswax in a double boiler on low heat.
2-Once melted add the essential oils and pour right away in your favorite soap mold.
3-Put in the freezer for 2 hours.
4-Un-mold and it’s ready to use!
Word of wisdom: Like any citrus essential oil, tangerine and sweet orange can be phototoxic, avoid using before going under the sun!
