Chocolate Orange Body Cream Recipe

Who wouldn’t want to smell like chocolate and oranges! This delicious, whipped body cream is perfect all year round for moisturising your body. It is 100% natural, and because it doesn’t contain water there is no need to add preservatives. For those with sensitive skin we recommend leaving out the essential oil.


How to make

  1. Cut the shea butter into small pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  2.  Add cocoa butter and coconut oil into a metal or heatproof glass bowl.
  3. Make a bain-marie by bringing water to the boil in a saucepan and placing the heatproof bowl on top. Stir until the cocoa butter and coconut oil are melted.
  4. Add the melted cocoa butter and coconut oil, along with the sweet almond oil to the shea butter.
  5. Use your hand mixer to blend all ingredients for 2 minutes or until the cream resembles whipped cream.
  6. Add sweet orange essential oil (if desired) and mix for another minute.
  7. Pour into a clean jar or container and store at room temperature for up to 6 months.

Cocoa Butter

When it comes into contact with the skin cocoa butter melts and is absorbed into the skin. It helps to form a super moisturising and protective barrier. The cocoa butter is refined but still smells like chocolate. It might smell good, but it’s not for eating!

Sweet Orange Essential Oil

This essential oil has stimulating and purifying properties with a sweet and refreshing aroma.
