With Valentine’s Day around the corner, chocolate will certainly be the food of choice amongst loved ones.
In this recipe, I take one of the world’s most loved and medicinal foods and turn it into a sensual edible body butter.
Once prepared, you can keep this recipe at room temperature and spread it where ever your heart desires.
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/3 cup agave nectar (clear agave is best)
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla powder
1/4 cup cacao powder(for a slightly thicker texture, add more if desired)
1/2 tsp cistanche (strong jing herb known to promote sexual prowess)
1 tsp maca (adaptagen, balances hormones, and strengthens the libido)
1-2 drops rose essential oil
1/2 tsp powdered lavender flowers
-Place all the ingredients into a food processor, and blend until all the ingredients are well incorporated.
-Pour into small jars and allow mixture to set in the fridge. Can be kept at room temperature in a cool place.
