Cocoa-Shea Hand Butter Bars: A Break From Class Notes
|Cooling hand butter bars. I made one round shape which is why there is an empty in the mold.|
Today I was in the mood to make some soap - unfortunately I was out of a necessary ingredient!
I have very dry skin that gets more intense in the Winter. I like to using a barrier cream - one that is not sticky and that makes my skin feel quenched and protected. Since I couldn't make soap today I decided to made some hand butter bars instead.These bars are about 2.75 inches long and 1 inch high. They are made from beeswax, cocoa butter, shea butter, jojoba oil and avacado oil with a bit of neroli essential oil added for a heavenly scent. Yum! They really do the trick!
|Finished hand butter bars. Divine! They are just a tiny bit sticky at first because of the Jojoba oil that's in the recipe. That feeling disappears really fast however - leaving my hands feeling like silk! It's a good thing!|
