Who doesn’t love chocolate?!?! I always feel so bad for people who are allergic to chocolate. My mother was a chocolate lover and she passed that gene right on down to me. Welcome to our Cacao (Chocolate) essential oil. This stuff is like Hershey’s syrup in an essential oil bottle. Thick, brown, and a beautiful chocolate smell.
Cacao (ka-kaw) essential is so straight from the bean it is almost good enough to eat- but I wouldn’t. Tastes like essential oil. This chocolate essential oil, though, can be used in just about everything you’re going to make. Bath bombs, soap bars, shower gel, foot scrub, candles (yes, this will burn but you’ll want to blend it with something else first), this cacao essential oil is everything you expect it to be.
Cacao essential oil has been said to relieve feelings of stress and anxiety. Try blending cacao essential oil with mood boosting essential oils like rosemary, peppermint, organic sweet basil, lavender, sweet orange, lemon, frankincense, bergamot, ylang, or vetiver. Cacao has such a great sweet base that you can use this to boost the other top notes.
As a skincare ingredient, cacao essential is more than just aromatherapy. Cacao essential oil is derived directly from the cacao bean, and when it is extracted the omega-6 fatty acids follow it into the essential oils. Omega-6 fatty acids help to boost natural collagen production and firm up the skin. This makes it an excellent addition to creams and moisturizers. Imagine a face firming cream with organic shea butter, organic cocoa butter, olive oil squalane, organic sea buckthorn oil, organic tamanu oil, Daikon radish seed oil, meadowfoam seed oil, and Oregon hazelnut oil blended with cacao essential oil, rose absolute essential oil, sweet orange essential oil, black pepper essential oil, and turmeric essential oil. It would be spicy and sweet, with super powered essential oils.
So, I love chocolate, right? Did you know that cacao essential oil (smelling it) can reduce food cravings? Not sure psychologically if I believe that, but that is what the studies say. So, if you hit your 3pm snack hour, maybe cacao essential oil in your diffuser or candle can help alleviate those cravings.
Cacao essential oil is also known to be an aphrodisiac, increasing blood flow and stimulating the brain and other sexual organs. Cacao would be an excellent addition to massage oils and creams, massage candles, and body scrubs.
Want to use cacao essential oil for all its yummy benefits, but don’t like the price point? Blend it with our Chocolate Honey fragrance to make a super powered chocolate. Or blend cacao essential oil with vanilla non-discoloring fragrance and coconut island to make a luxurious chocolate coconut bliss. Cacao also blends well with sweet orange essential oil, cardamom essential oil, cinnamon essential oil, clove bud essential oil and coffee essential oil for a Mexican mocha. Or how about cacao essential oil with candy cane fragrance for a peppermint patty? Or cacoa essential oil with fig and flannel….oh my, call it Hiker’s Delight. Cacao and gingerbread….chocolate ginger! Cacao and oatmeal milk and honey would be No Bake Cookies. Cacao and Rice Flower and Shea could be Chocolate Love or Fudge-pop, or Chocolate Cream. Cacao and Amber and Salt and Sea could be Salted Caramel.
