All chocolate, deserves love!

Dance in the mirror with Ari Lennox's Shea Butter Baby while moisturizing your skin with your favorite homemade whipped butter. Trust us! You don’t have to be an esthetician to make your own butter.

Whipped Body Butter Recipe
- 3/4 cup cocoa or shea butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil or your favorite essential oil
- In a metal bowl, melt down your hard butters and oils until fully liquid
- Set in the freezer to harden for about 20 minutes.
- Once the mixture is solid again, but not too hard, whip it up using an electric whisk or food processor, or hand held whisk
- Whip about 5 minutes, or until you have created fluffy white clouds. Spoon it into a clean jar or container. It will last for 3 months.
- Lather on
Chocolate + Martinis are a winning combo
Chocolate can also improve your health. Eating a small piece of chocolate everyday can improve your blood sugar levels, fight off free radicals, and the antioxidants help enhance the appearance of your skin. So basically chocolate is a necessary food group. Enjoy your daily dose of chocolate with a decadent adult spin on chocolate milk.
