Expelled from the Cocoa Beans come the sweet aroma of Cocoa Butter, i am loving Coco Butter in every way these days, in my hair, on my skin, as a face mask, hot coco drink you name it i use it. Cocoa butter is one of the most stable fats containing natural antioxidants that prevent it from going bad thus giving it a shelf life of two to five years.

Cocoa Butter repairs and protect the skin making it good for mama's growing belly. I just reorder some Cocoa Butter and will start mixing up some goodies for my friends and love one, everyone keeps asking me for old products that i gave to them in the past and i have no idea what they are talking about so this time when i make goodies i need to label them don't you think.

I did a well over due facial two days ago that i called mint chocolate spa day, i have this amazing refreshing exhilarating mint scrub from GOW that just refreshes your skin like no other, after that i steam my face with lavender, jasmine flowers and lemon balm with a drop of lavender essential oil and that open up my pores letting out all the gunk. Then yes how the Chocolate mask followed i mix part chocolate powder with part clay and my skin looks and feel revived.

I remember once we went to the country in Jamaica and there was a cocoa tree in the yard with this big yellow fruit growing on it that the elders pick and we ate the meat from inside i cannot describe to you what it taste like because this was long ago but i do remember it being yummy, and them they roasted the seed and then we had a brick of chocolate to make our hot chocolate tea with. Fun Times


  1. Cocoa powder is especially nice for skin -- mixed with a little rhassoul clay and a pinch of patchouli powder -- mmmmmm!

  2. We are vibing... I have been using cocoa butter body butters for the last couple of weeks, as well as a cocoa-based masque at least once weekly. Cocoa powder and cocoa butter nourish my dry skin and make it supple, plus I loooove the scent. Your mint chocolate spa facial sounds yummy. :)

  3. I need to try it with the patchouli powder next time.
