This month Mountain Rose Herbs is also offering 20% off Organic Raw Cacao Beans. If you recall from my post in January, black tea, dark chocolate and fish can help to reduce stress, depression, and anxiety. Cacao Beans are no exception! Not only do raw cacao beans which not only taste great, but is high flavonoids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Cacao also acts as a natural antidepressant in the body through natural elements that elevate the mood, help increase focus, and give feelings of attraction, pleasure, and excitement. So, what are cacao beans? Cacoa beans are basically raw chocolate and are the seeds of the fruit of the native South American cacao tree that have been dried and fully fermented. They contain no sugar and are a great source of magnesium. To consume cacao beans, you may simple eat them straight. Or you may choose to blend them into smoothies, freeze then eat cold with some raw honey, blend with maca into an herbal tea, blend with a sweetener and nuts for a natural chocolate bar, or crush and add to ice cream as a substitute for chocolate chips!

Quick & Easy Natural Massage Melts Recipe

By Mindy Schwartz (Reader submitted)

Ingredients:

3 ½ oz. of shea butter
3 ½ oz. of beeswax pastilles
2 oz. of jojoba oil
2 oz. of sweet almond oil
¼ tsp. of Vitamin E oil

Equipment:

Mold(s) of your choice
1 digital cooking thermometer
2 Pyrex glass measuring cups
1 small digital postal scale
1 set of measuring aluminum spoons
Wax paper for measuring on the scale
Beeswax wraps to cover Pyrex cups

Directions:

Step 1:

Gather all equipment onto a clean, sterile surface. Place a sheet of wax paper over the small digital postal scale to measure out the shea butter and beeswax base. Place base in a Pyrex cup and cover with beeswax wrap. Melt ingredients, completely, in the microwave.

Step 2:

While the base is melting, use the second Pyrex cup for your jojoba, sweet almond, vitamin E, and essential/fragrance oils (if used). Mix, cover with plastic wrap, and set aside.

Step 3:

Once the base has melted, mix thoroughly. Pour the Pyrex cup from step 2 into the base Pyrex cup, mix together, and pour into your mold(s). Set aside for a couple of hours to cool and set. When soft, transfer the melts to the fridge until they are really hard. They should just pop out of the molds easily. Massage into skin and let product become absorbed. Due to melting properties, keep unused portions out of direct sunlight and store in a cool place.

Note:

If you plan on using essential and/or fragrance oils in your natural massage melts recipe, place a digital thermometer in the melted shea butter and beeswax base. Wait for the temperature to drop down to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything higher will burn off the fragrant oils.

After the temperature has reached this point immediately dump your Pyrex cup from step 2 into the Pyrex cup with the base, mix quickly, and pour into your mold(s). Follow the rest of step 3 instructions for making these quick and easy natural pain relief bath melts.
