Body Honey Wrap with Coconut Oil

Honey and coconut oil have both long been used to moisturize the skin. Combine them with this method and you have a super luscious body butter that will leave your skin soft as a cloud. Consider this body honey a Valentine to yourself, or try it on your partner for a special at-home Valentine’s Day surprise.

True natural body care extends beyond basic health and aesthetic concerns to include fun, frolic, physical and tactile pleasures, warm and tender sharing, and a celebration of life. So while this formula does wonders for moisturizing your skin, it can also arouse your senses with yummy tastes and soothing texture.

2 tablespoons coconut oil (extra-virgin, unrefined)
1 tablespoon of your favorite raw honey
2 drops vanilla, peppermint, or sweet orange essential oil (optional)

In a small bowl, whip together all ingredients. This sweet treat is now ready to use.

If the temperature in your kitchen is above 76F, the body honey will maintain a liquid consistency; if the temperature is below 76F, it will be a medium soft solid (because of the melting point of the coconut oil).

Take several bath towels (enough to cover your body) and dampen them with hot water (as hot is comfortable for you to touch) in an empty bathtub. Get in the tub and rub the honey mixture over your body, recline and cover yourself with the hot towels. Sit, relax, and enjoy until the towels are cool and you are ready to rinse. Rinse, pat yourself dry, and follow up with some plain coconut oil or your favorite all-natural lotion.
