I think it is made by Fresh. I'm a big fan of most of their stuff, although it is pricey. But, I've had a little container of the orange chocolate shea butter for over two years and there is still a lot left. And it does smell delicious.

Another thing you can do is make a cocoa butter massage cream. Regular cocoa butter smells like chocolate. But since cocoa butter is quite hard, you'd have to melt it down and mix some oils with it to soften it up.

I ordered the chocolate and cappucinno scented oils & added them to massage oil. A little goes a LONG way, but it smells decadent! Oops, I ordered choc chip cookie scent....The oils are meant for soapmaking, so theyre safe for the skin. They are not essential oils, though, just scented. Decent prices, too!

soapsafe fragrance oils are not necessarily always safe to be used in other applications such as oils and lotions. In soap, the FO will not stay on your skin since your skin will be rinsed off. With lotion and oil, you don't rinse off. i have sensitive skin, so everything effects me, but other people that make bath and body products have not had a problem with allergic reactions. So, you may want to make sure it is lotionsafe also.

I just ordered this a few weeks ago to try for myself. WOW! It has a really nice scent and softens the skin right up! I HIGHLY recommend this one! Enjoy!

For the BEST chocolate massage oil, go to Keyano Aromatics. http://www.keyano.com

I created a Chocolate spa treatment for my salon, and I tried out lots of brands of chocolate massage oils. So many of them smelled sickly sweet...they just were not what I was looking for. So I ordered a sample of Keyano's, and WOW...it's fantastic. Others smelled more like chocolate syrup, but this one smells like DARK CHOCOLATE. Fantastic. Clients who love chocolate love this treatment!! Yum!

I use to use Keyano products where I use to work and the chocolate products will smell the entire place like chocolate.... so make sure you have some actual edible sweets on hand. I liked their products too.

Any updates on chocolate products? I'm looking at the natural formulations recommendation. If anyone has any other suggestions. I'd love to hear. Thanks!

So, I purchased the Natural Formulations as I had an upcoming chocolate massage. When it arrived I smelled it...smelled sorta choco chocolatey. I was satisfied they were nice on the phone and I had a chocolate product to offer. I ran into a Lemongrass Spa representative that had their whipped Chocolate product. I smelled it and it smelled really good, but I said I already had purchased my body butter.
My husband had me go get the natural formulations product to do a sniff test (he has a better sense of smell than I). He sniffed the lemongrass and then the natural formulations...he said in comparison natural formulations smelled like paint...and lemongrass smelled like yummy chocolate. So that sold me, along with their products being natural and handmade. I used the whipped chocolate product for my couple's chocolate massage and it worked wonderful. I warmed it on my arm prior to applying it to them. I also got a chocolate linen spray from Zum/INdigo Wild. This was a nice touch so it was quite the chocolate event. I also had a chocolate fountain with great items to dip.

I liked the lemongrass products so much... I signed up. Above is a link to their products. It doesn't have the chocolate listed yet, as it's seasonal...should be available soon.
Hope this helps someone!

I agree the Keyano chocolate oils and creams make the whole room smell like Chocolate, it is great! I have a little chocolate candy I hand anyway for the craving. I got mine out of the massagewarehouse catalog, but they have a website also I think.

Just had a look at the Keyano oil and it doesn't actually appear to have any chocolate in it, just a chocolate fragrance, which seems to defeat the object really because it can't possibly have any of the benefits which chocolate is reputed to have such as cell renewal and calming the mind. Has anyone come across a natural chocolate oil or do they simply not exist.

Do clients really like chocolate massage? I would think they would prefer more of an aromatherapy massage, but I'm willing to buy if I get more clients.

Tastes differ. Someone wants to be like chocolate, wrapped up in a beautiful cower and someone prefers fragrance in ecstasy of relaxation.

I do believe clients are intrigued by Chocolate Massage. It's especially nice to offer chocolate couples massage around the Holidays or even for anniversaries.
Every one is different, obviously, my sister-in-law doesn't like to use products that smell like she would like to eat them.

On the other hand I used to live in Pa and people travelled from all over to go to the Hershey Spa, so yes, chocolate massage is of interest.
Sadly I always heard poor feedback of the therapists at the Hershey spa, under paid, under trained, but since they don't deal with repeat business no one cared.

Lemongrass Spa's Chocolate body butter was very popular with my clients. Right now they have a chocolate cake body scrub and pink champagne body butter that would be great for a Valentine's treatments. I also find the spearmint eucalyptus lotion works awesome when I mix it with coconut oil for massages, everyone LOVES that scent. I see I have the wrong link in an old post, http://www.OurLemongrassSpa.com/RelaxationSpot
