Peppermint & Cocoa Butter Lotion Bar

Peppermint & Cocoa Butter Lotion Bars

My first attempt at making any kind of lotion. It turned out very well if I do say so myself. If you like peppermint and chocolate you’ll love this scrumptious lotion. I, personally, have never cared much for the scent of peppermint, but it is mild enough and balanced out by the cocoa butter that I have been enjoying this lotion quite a lot. The cocoa butter is super moisturizing. Since it is a bar, application works best by rubbing it between the hands. However, I have used it all over just by running the bar along the skin.

Ingredients: cocoa butter, beeswax, coconut oil, peppermint oil.

*I have recently started using this on my face and I love it! The harsh winter weather was drying out my face and the store-bought face lotions I had on hand just weren’t cutting it. Since I have started using this on my face I haven’t had any problems with dryness. Cocoa butter works by forming a protective layer and helps skin retain it’s own moisture. What an improvement! I have also started applying it to my lips and am very pleased with their reduced dryness as well. Be aware not to use too much though, as it may leave your face greasy if applied in excess.
