This is a post that I have delayed for almost a month. Winter was almost gone in Kolkata but it came back to give a last chill.
Okay, it is a very easy DIY which requires 3 ingredients only.
The ingredients are-1/2 cup of cocoa butter,1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
Before starting let me tell you some benefits of these three ingredients. By the way all these are ingredients with high vitamin E benefits .
Cocoa butter :
Cocoa Butter is high in anti oxidants, which helps fight free radicals. Cocoa Butter is high in fatty acids which hydrates the skin deeply.
Olive oil is closer in chemical structure to the skin’s natural oil so it acts as the perfect moisturizer especially for dry skin. The anti oxidants present in this oil along with vitamin E helps reduce signs of premature aging. It also increases the elasticity of the skin.
It helps to reduce age spots. Coconut oil when applied regularly heals damaged skin cells.
Let’s get started:
Step 1:Gather all your ingredients.
Step 2:Melt the cocoa butter.
Step 3:Combine all the ingredients and whisk it together.
Step 4:Keep it in the chiller for 10-15 minutes.
Step 5: Take it out, it should not have frozen completely. If it does, melt it completely and then keep it in the fridge again but for less time now. Then blend it with an electric hand blender to whip it up and it is ready to use.
Do try this and let me know whether you liked it or not. You can also add honey or extra benefits. Do not add any extra olive oil as it may make your skin feel greasy. Enjoy!!!

Hey Iqra, such a simple and nice DIY .. 🙂 I am going to try this out.. I just have one doubt.. How much is the greasiness ?? I mean, does it get absorbed like normal body lotions n butters? And can we use it before going out, without the chipku feeling?
I have always wanted to make body butter’s at home, but did not, thinking it will give me a chipku feeling.. Do let me know.. 🙂
Yes you can give this a try if you are so scared of the chipku feeling you can reduce the quantity of cocoa butter if you like. it will get absorbed just like TBS butters. Do try this and let me know how it worked:)
