Aromatherapy Massage Bars

Cocoa Butter has a delicious chocolate scent. If you prefer,substitute Shea Butter or mango butter for the Cocoa Butter. Here is a wonderful recipe from Aromatherapy Massage Bars from Natural Holistic Health.

The supplies you will need to create these massage bars are 3 ounces Beeswax, 3 ounces Apricot or Almond oil, 3 ounces Cocoa Butter 1 teaspoon essential oil or combination of oils and Soap bar molds (available at most craft stores)

The directions are very simple. Heat Beeswax, Apricot or Almond oil and Cocoa Butter in a double boiler over low heat just until melted. Remove from heat. Add essential oil when mixture has cooled slightly. Pour into Soap molds and cool until hardened, approximately 2 hours. Place in freezer for a few minutes before popping bars out of molds. To use, rub massage bar onto the skin — the warmth of the skin immediately melts the bar.
