About Organic Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is the edible fat derived from the cacao bean. Solid at room temperature and white to pale yellow in colour, cocoa butter has a slight chocolate taste and aroma. To obtain cocoa butter, cacao beans are ground, then either pressed or warmed to separate the fat from the cocoa solids. Cocoa Butter has a number of uses. It is very popular as a moisturiser, particularly for use after a shower or bath, with a lovely scent. It is also a useful food being suitable as a replacement for oils as well as being essential in chocolate and other cocoa related dishes.

About 36% of the fat in the cocoa bean is "good fat" - either mono- or polyunsaturated fat, of which, oleic acid (the fatty acid also abundant in olive oil) makes up the largest proportion. Of the saturated fat content in cocoa butter, over half comes from stearic acid. Stearic acid has been shown in numerous studies to have a neutral impact on blood cholesterol. The main reason may be that stearic acid converts from a saturated fat to an unsaturated fat when metabolised in the body. Studies have been conducted where participants fed chocolate daily for two weeks showed no change in blood cholesterol when total calories in the diet were kept the same.

I have suffered with intense itching on my hands and arms for almost 2 years - and have tried various natural moisturisers.  Your organic cocoa butter has completely cleared up my sores and itching!  I absolutely love it!  The magic of nature.  Thank you so much.

Thank you Real Foods for selling raw organic cacao butter in bulk! The price is great. One can buy as much or as little as one wants. I use it to make my own chocolates, all kinds of raw sweets, even in raw savoury sauces and more ... I am sure it would be great for cooking and baking too. But it doesn't stop in the kitchen, I also use it in the bathroom. You know how store bought creams that say with cocoa butter and when you look at the ingredients there is only 3 per cent of it? Try making your own creams instead, or even using pure cocoa butter to moisturise really dry skin or hair.
I also make bath cocoa butter bath melts: gently melt your cocoa butter, when cool, add essential oils of your choice, rose petals, cosmetic glitter, ...Pour into silicone moulds...Pop into the fridge until solid...Use to your hearts content...

This coconut butter is being sold as a superfood but I find it perfect for keeping my very dry skin moisturised.

Natural Cream Deodorant Recipe

Summary: What is wrong with traditional deodorants ? Should you be making your own deodorant ? Traditional deodorants work by combining 2 main actions : 1. Killing all bacteria on the underarm skin, disrupting the skin microbiome. And 2. Using Aluminium salts to stop perspiration by blocking sweat ducts, keeping odour causing bacteria in check, as they need a moist environment to multiply. Both actions are very un-natural, and not only using traditional deodorants can make the problem worse, Aluminium is absorbed through the skin and has been found in cancerous breast tissue, so the general advice is now to avoid it. In addition to the potential health risk, making your own deodorant and storing it in a reusable glass jar will contribute to reducing the amount of waste, plastic and otherwise, that you produce. Our natural gentle cream deodorant is a great alternative to chemical deodorants. It is antibacterial thanks to the coconut oil, skin softening thanks to the cocoa and shea butter, the Sodium Bicarbonate gently balances the skin pH, the arrowroot or clay absorb humidity, the probiotics help balance the skin microbiome, and finally the essential oils provide natural scent. Lavender and patchouli is a lovely, gender neutral combination. You could use only coconut oil, but substituting some of the coconut oil with cocoa butter and shea butter will really soften the skin, especially if you have dry or sensitive underarm skin or if you shave your underarms. By adding the probiotics, you increase the odour protection, as the beneficial bacteria limits the development of the odour creating bacteria. Choose probiotics that are stable at room temperature, as this way you will be able to keep your deodorant in the bathroom rather than in the fridge. The recipe makes enough to fill a 60ml jar.

Marzipan Chocolates Recipe

Summary: I had the brilliant idea of making these Marzipan filled Chocolates after making my Christmas cake. I had made my own marzipan and was left with some after decorating the cake. Marzipan and chocolate really are a delicious pairing, and you can of course make these any time of the year, and use store bought marzipan for a more speedy preparation. The chocolate is a basic fail-proof raw vegan recipe, absolutely delicious on its own too, if you don't have any marzipan, or if you want a nut-free treat.
