Nothing screams Christmas to me like orange and chocolate. Growing up one of my favorite things was those boxes of orange sticks. They were my grandpa’s favorite. No matter what else he got for Christmas, everyone always gave him orange sticks. My parents would always buy a box for the family as well. And we would gobble them up in a hurry. Then when I got married, my husband introduced me to chocolate orange balls. I had never had one before, and again I was in love. Before we dived head first into the real food lifestyle, it became our tradition to use those in the bottom of everyone’s stocking for Christmas.
Now, I have to come up with new ways to integrate that beloved smell and flavor into my holiday, and what is better than lathering your body in an edible and delicious orange chocolate body butter? I say not much!
Whether you are looking to horde this delicious body butter all for yourself, or spread the orange cheer and share it with friends and family you won’t want to miss trying this!
- 1/2 C. Cocoa Butter (like this)
- 1 C. Coconut oil (like this)
- 2 Tbs. Tallow
- 5 drops Orange essential oil (order here)
- Melt cocoa butter, coconut oil, and tallow in double boiler.
- Let cool.
- With blender, whip until fluffy.
- Add essential oils.

- Use all over generously!
Hi there. Thanks for the recipe – sounds great. What could I possibly sub in if I do not have tallow? Thanks!
You could just add a little extra cocoa butter. 🙂
