“Ginger invigorates, and oil soothes. Try this double dose for dry skin. Adapted from Homemade Beauty Recipes.”
1/2 cup, about

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 inches piece fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons light sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons apricot kernel oil
  • 2 teaspoons vitamin E
  • 12 cup cocoa butter


  1. Preheat your oven on the lowest setting. Finely grate the ginger just enough so that you have about an 1/8 teaspoon of ginger juice. To obtain the juice, squeeze the freshly grated ginger over a small bowl.
  2. Place the ingredients, including the ginger in a glass or stainless steel pan and heat just until the cocoa butter is melted and the oils are blended.
  3. Pour into a clean, dry container and store in a cool dry place. You can add a few drops of lemon or other essential oil for a nice twist. Relax, and enjoy!
