Project- Body Butter Bars
I really like making my own bath products. After making scrub successfully, I wanted to try body butter. Several recipes piqued my interest for bars, as well as body butter, but simply melting and molding cocoa butter seemed like a foolproof place to start.
I found the cocoa butter at a great little local shop, but several Etsy sellers carry it, as well.
Put chunks of cocoa butter in a heat -proof bowl over low boiling water.

Once melted, pour into desired mold.

Place the molds in the refrigerator to set (they set pretty quickly). To turn them out of a metal mold, you can run warm water over the back of the tin.

Ta da! Per these instructions, I like using it alone before a shower, and over lotion after a shower to sort of seal in the lotion.
