What you need?50 g. of cocoa butter, 50 g. of coconut oil, 25 g. of sweet almond oil (or other neutral oil) and 1 tsp of cocoa powder
How to do it?
In a double boiler, melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil. Add the rest of the natural ingredients, mix well and let it cool in the refrigerator (or on your balcony) for about half an hour. The mixture should have already firmed up, but should not be completely solid. Using a whisk, whip the mixture vigorously until it becomes creamy.
Be careful: if you don't wait long enough and your oils are too hot, the emulsion will not take place!
When you see that the cream is starting to set, plunge the bottom of your container into a bowl filled with ice water and continue to whisk. Then pour your mixture into an airtight container.
