This past December Kyra
and I made some coco body butter for our families for Christmas. We have made Salve
in the past with our homegrown calendula
, almond oil and beeswax but this time we were wanting a thicker cream more appropriate for the winter skin. So we decided to combine our past butter cream experiments and came up with this combination. Shea & cocoa butter, coconut & almond oil. We also used an immersion blender which was amazing. It made the cream turn from a bland color and watery consistency to a thick and pretty deep cream color. We still have some tweaking to do to come up with the perfecter winter body cream but I think it turned out pretty nice. The cocoa butter smells like chocolate so it adds a very nice scent to the mix! Did you make any gifts this year? Any that you were super excited about?
