Uses-for-Cocoa-PowderUses for Cocoa Powder

Hello all you wonderfully crafty people out there! Are you looking for a new and unique product to add to your projects? Or maybe you’ve been looking for something that is so enticing that your customers just won’t be able to help themselves. Well, what if I told you you could use everyone’s favorite food in the world? Chocolate! I’m not kidding! You can actually use real cocoa powder in your products! It can be used for so many different industries including skin care, hair care, bath and body products, medicinal purposes, soaping, and the most obvious, food and beverages. Some common bath and body products that can include cocoa powder are soaps, shampoos and conditioners, face masks, facial toners, bath bombs, lotions, ointments, creams, lip balms, massage oils, and scrubs.

There are so many amazing uses for cocoa powder. When you use it in your bath and body products, it has many wonderful skin and hair care benefits. In soaps, it gives the soap a beautiful natural brown color. For your skin, cocoa powder helps to renew and firm new skin cells, promote healthy skin tissues, and it also helps promote healthy cell development. Cocoa powder is a powerful antioxidant and helps to repair any damaged skin, absorbs UV light into the skin, improves blood flow, and improves complexion and helps the skin stay hydrated. You hair can benefit from cocoa powder as well. It helps to stop stress-caused hair loss, promotes shinier hair, and also helps to moisturize, soften, and smooth the hair.

Cocoa powder also has many medicinal benefits. Did you know that chocolate could actually help fight cancer? Cocoa actually contains high levels of an antioxidant called polyphenols. When you drink hot chocolate, or other chocolate drinks, the polyphenols actually fight cancer! Even you heart can stay healthier with cocoa powder. It helps to lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol, as well as protecting you from a stroke and heart disease. For people that suffer from Alzheimer’s, cocoa powder actually helps to increase the amount of oxygen to the brain. Cocoa powder also contains many important minerals for the body such as magnesium, sodium, potassium, zinc, copper, calcium, and phosphorous. It also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, E, and pantothenic acid. Cocoa also works as an antidepressant and mood enhancer, increasing serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain, essentially making you happier!

So really, chocolate is actually very good for you! I mean it fights cancer and protects you from heart disease! How could you not want to use this in every single product you make from now on? But hold on, because here at Nature’s Garden we actually offer many free classes and recipes, and some of them just happen to be made with our cocoa powder! When you type “cocoa powder” into the search bar on our site, it will take you directly to our Organic Cocoa Powder page. On top of the cocoa powder picture, there is a little green link labeled “Recipe.” That will actually show you all of our fantastic recipes made with cocoa powder like our Gourmet Chocolate Bath Melts or our Chocolate Foaming Body Frosting! Make sure to try out every single one of them and keep watching for more Enlightened by Layla!
