  • Combine the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and almond oil together in a small pan and heat on medium-low heat until melted. Be sure not to boil.
  • Place heart mold on a cookie sheet and pour melted butter into mold.
  • Place 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil (or other essential oil of your choice) in each mold.
  • Place mold into the fridge and allow it to completely cool, about 1 hour
  • Gently pop them out of the mold and store in an airtight container or the refrigerator. The bars will begin to melt in your hands if you hold them for too long, making them perfect for a nice warm oil massage.
  • Enjoy! :)
