Vegan body balm

Finding a vegan, cruelty-free and plastic-free moisturiser is difficult and expensive! I saw one priced for $20 at my local health food store. Why not make your own cacao and coconut body balm instead?

You need: - 1/2 cup of cacao butter - 1/4 cup of olive oil - 1/2 cup of coconut oil

Pour everything into a jug and heat in a pot of hot water (double boiler technique). Put the lid on the pot to help the mixture heat up faster (this should take 10 mins). Pour the mixture into jar of your choice. In the summer keep it stored in the fridge! I saved myself $15 (ingredients were less than $5 a jar). I made a batch of two today so saved myself $30!

Hi can I ask if this make transfers onto clothing? I use a body moisturiser every day and would like to make this, but I'm worried about it transferring onto my clothing when I get dressed. Thanks in advance :)
