Body Butter


 unrefined cocoa butter

Update, 11/02:  The company we order ingredients from has been out of shea butter for the last few weeks.  But they have finally restocked, and my order is on its way!  I can't wait to receive it and get started.

Wow!  I am blown away by the response to my post about selling the hair snaps.  They were all sold within 3 hours.  What a blessing!

I am considering selling homemade body butter next, as another way to bring in a little income while Andy continues to search for full time work.  I make body butter for our family a couple times a year, and it is does wonders for my kiddos' dry winter skin.  Our homemade body butter is equal parts organic unrefined cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil.  It smells like chocolate, and sometimes we add a few drops of orange essential oil and it smells like chocolate orange.  Yum!  The kids are practically edible after bathtime. 

If you might be interested in purchasing a tub of body butter, please leave me a comment here on my blog (no emails, please...they will get lost in my overflowing inbox!).  If it looks like there will be enough interest, I will figure out the size and cost and take pre-orders.

If you are interested in body butter that would NOT smell like chocolate, please let me know that, also.  I could use mango butter in place of the cocoa butter. 

Thanks so much for your support.  God is providing! :)

It's delish with a few drops of peppermint instead of orange. Now an after dinner chocolate mint- i'll could take a bite out of that!

Jenni said...

I'll buy some!

That sounds so yummy. I would love to buy some. I would like the all chocolate smell. The kids would love that too.

Are you going to offer this to Mocha Moms? You might rack up that way too.

I will take some! I'm dreading the usual winter flare up of Kyle's eczema, and maybe this will help!
Let me know how much $$$!

Way to go with the snaps!!

I think the body butter is a great idea. I make it for our kids all the time, and we've started going to different organic co-ops and farmers markets with our business, and people are always asking if we have homemade salves or body butters. Maybe there's a place where you could sell yours locally, in addition to selling it online...

Your body butter sounds yummy! :)

Interested! (Raising hand) Also interested in hair butters, smoothies, whatever. I have read so many people make them at home but I never seem to get to it.

Salem said...

We'd be interested in this too depending on cost!

Update! We've been waiting for Mountain Rose Herbs to re-stock their amazing shea butter. It is finally in, so we are putting the order in. Watch for a post giving details about the body and hair butters in the next month. I'm excited to get started! (If you left contact info, I will of course contact you personally. :)
