"What are you putting on your skin?" My sister-in-law Deb grabbed the lotion bottle out of my hands and threw it in the trash. She handed me a few pieces of raw cocoa butter and said, "Go get to know your self." I rolled my eyes. I had no idea what she meant. I looked at the cocoa butter and tried warming it in my hands. It didn't melt and it tugged at my skin but slowly I was able to work it onto my body. The overnight transformation was remarkable. Scales and flakes had healed, bumps and irritations had calmed, and my dry yogi feet felt nourished. It was the best moisturizer I had ever used. But there had to be an easier way to apply it. I wanted it to glide on smoothly - no harsh rubbing.
I spent almost two years developing Body Stones - natural, simple, and in my kitchen. I've learned that cocoa butter is an incredible natural preservative (hence no moldy chocolate) and that moisturizers don't need added preservatives, synthetics, or other chemicals. We are completely plant based, packaged in sustainably farmed, re-usable bamboo canisters. And we're beautiful.
