By now you've probably heard of all the different ways you can use coconut oil. It can make damaged hair feel soft again, be used to remove eye makeup, and is a great cheap alternative to shaving cream. Despite its many uses, the best and probably most common use of coconut oil is still as a moisturizer.

Perfect for nourishing dry, parched skin, the following recipe combines coconut oil with cocoa butter and olive oil to create an extremely hydrating moisturizer that can be used on the entire body. To mask the smell of olive oil, you can add a few drops of essential oils. Due to its long shelf-life, this moisturizer makes for a great gift to give to family and friends.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup cocoa butter
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Essential oil (rose, lavender, or eucalyptus), optional


Place all the ingredients in a small pan and microwave just a few seconds until the cocoa butter and coconut oil is fully melted. Pour the ingredients in a small round bowl with a tight lid. Shake vigorously a few times as the mixture cools. When the mixture comes to room temperature it should be the consistency of the coconut oil before it melted. Scoop out a dollop with your finger and apply to face and/or body.
