Description 

Cocoa Butter:  This oil is a hard solid at room temperature, making the term "butter" a bit misleading. It is an edible vegetable fat that is obtained from cocoa beans, and it has a very mild chocolate-y aroma. Cocoa Butter is one of the most stable fats and also contains natural antioxidants. It is reputed to provide a barrier that helps retain and restore the moisture in your skin. This butter is different than our other butters like Mango or Coffee Butter which are soft to the touch. If you hold a piece of solid Cocoa Butter against your skin, it will start to melt in the way a chocolate bar does, but stays solid at room temperature.

Note: To avoid crystallization when melting cocoa butter, it is best to temper it. It's simple to do: raise the temperature on your melting cocoa butter slowly, over 45 minutes. Then, turn the heat off, cover the cocoa butter and let it cool for approximately 10 minutes. Use this method to achieve smoother lotion and lip balms.

Ingredients:
Botanical Name:  Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter
Common Name:  Cocoa Butter

Cocoa Butter review
I was used to the block of cocoa butter that actually smelled like cocoa butter. I thought maybe I ordered the descented one in error but after reviewing my order I see that was not the case. I think if the smell is not there then the cocoa butter quality is very poor.

Hi Lee! Our Cocoa Butter does have a very light scent. We do this so the scent will not conflict with any fragrance used in your final product. We also love how easy these pastilles are to blend into products. We do have Bulk Cocoa Butter that has a much stronger scent you may like. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Great in CP Soaps!
This melts evenly with my other solid oils unlike the larger cocoa butter wafers sold on another site. I do wish you sold them in 2 lbs or 3 lbs, or other amounts between the 1 lb & the 8 lb. I love your shea butter as well!

Will you get the old butter back?
Measuring with the new pellets is easy but we did not enjoy the scent at all. I had to go out to the local store to purchase cocoa butter sticks in order to get the smell we like. As for its effectiveness it seems to work almost as well. Hope you get the old cocoa butter back a selection would be nice since I found a company I can trust to ship my items, I hat shopping around.

love the pellets!
So happy Brambleberry carries this in pellet form! Allows you to measure exact amounts so pre-melting isn't necessary. Light cocoa scent which I don't think will interfere with fragrance/essential oils. Looking forward to using!

No cocoa butter scent!!!
I was looking for a product with that rich yummy cocoa butter scent. This is NOT it. The description should indicate that it doesn't have that undertone of chocolate smell that many Cocoa butters do... Love everything else I've purchased from Brambleberry but will not ever buy this again. On a good note- if you want Cocoa butter that's close to deodorized this is it! Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Sarah! I'm sorry this Cocoa Butter did not have the chocolatey smell you were looking for!  You're right, it does have a very light scent.  We do this so the scent will not conflict with any fragrance used in your final product.  We also love how easy these pastilles are to blend into products!  I will email you personally to discuss this further. UPDATE: Brambleberry has been spectacular in helping me find what I was actually looking for- scented cocoa butter. Highly recommend working with this company.
