Cocoa Butter has a delicious chocolate scent. If you prefer, substitute Shea Butter or mango butter for the Cocoa Butter.


  • 3 ounces Beeswax
  • 3 ounces Apricot or Almond oil
  • 3 ounces Cocoa Butter
  • 1 teaspoon essential oil or combination of oils
  • Soap bar molds (available at craft stores)


  • Heat Beeswax, Apricot or Almond oil and Cocoa Butter in a double boiler over low heat just until melted. Remove from heat.
  • Add essential oil when mixture has cooled slightly.
  • Pour into Soap molds and cool until hardened, approximately 2 hours.
  • Place in freezer for a few minutes before popping bars out of molds.
  • To use, rub massage bar onto the skin — the warmth of the skin immediately melts the bar.
