Cocoa Butter Organic (Oshadhi) 250ml

Cocoa butterCocoa Butter Organic


Cocoa Butter as a Carrier Oil


Cocoa butter is extracted from cocoa beans. It has a rich, thick texture, pale yellow colour and recognizable chocolaty scent. It is one of the thickest natural kinds of butter, so unlike shea butter, you have to melt it before using it to make skincare products.

Cocoa Butter is moisturizing, leaves a protective barrier on the skin, is gentle and can be included in massage blends, lotions, creams and other natural skin care products. Cocoa Butter is well recognized for its ability to keep the skin supple and to help prevent or reduce stretch marks or scars. It is said that cocoa butter is rich in anti-oxidants. Pure cocoa butter has a distinctive chocolate aroma that will compete with the aroma of any essential oils that you blend with it.

Cocoa butter is solid and hard to work with at room temperature. Breaks into pieces. To work with Cocoa Butter, soak the container in hot water. The edges of the cocoa butter will melt so that the butter can be removed from the container. Because cocoa butter is such a hard butter, it should be combined other vegetable oils or kinds of butter to make a balm, lotion or cream.

Rose Hip Seed Carrier OilAbout Carrier Oils


Carrier oils are a massively important feature of an aromatherapy treatment.

The correct and thoughtful use of carrier oils (also known as base oils, or vegetable oils) in therapeutic massage adds a huge additional dimension to the benefit of the treatment.

Despite this, carrier oils in aromatherapy are sometimes seen simply as the vehicle for the essential oils to be introduced onto the skin. Hence the use of the word 'carrier oil'.

If you want to convince yourself about the benefit for health and well-being that vegetable oils can provide in their own right, try self-massage with warm Sesame oil every day for a week before a bath or shower, and see what difference you notice. (This is a daily prescription for good health that is recommended by Maharishi AyurVeda, Ayurveda being the world's oldest system of natural health care, and is said to prevent all manner of ailments, to balance the system, and restore health and vitality.)

Why are Carrier Oils Important?


Vegetable oils are largely composed of fatty acids, which are very important to the body, not only because they are an important source of energy, but also because they are a component in the building and maintenance of healthy cells.

Many vegetable oils contain essential fatty acids (EFAs). These cannot be produced by the body yet they are a requirement for life and health. Deficiency of EFAs can lead to a number of ailments, including dry and flaky skin, and raised cholesterol.

Create your own Carrier Oil Blends Different oils can be suitable for different skin types. Try creating your own vegetable oil blends. For example with wheat germ, sunflower, sesame and hazelnut; or add 10% of avocado oil to sweet almond to create a carrier oil for dry skin.
