Sparkling Body Butter

I’m sure most people know someone that loves glitter. Today I’ll be making the Sparkling Body Butter found in our recipes section. This lotion is for those glitter fanatics in your life (or the Twilight fanatics). Just make sure that the lotion doesn’t end up right next to the lotion without glitter, otherwise you will have someone use a glitter lotion after the shower when they don’t mean/want to use it! This has happened before and we have heard all about it here at MMS! This recipe used Sunflower Fragrance Oil, but I figured since it is spring, I want to use Freesia Fragrance Oil.

Aloe Butter
White Cocoa Butter
Grapeseed Oil

Emulsifying Wax

Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter
Purple Raspberry Dropper Bottle from January 12, 2009
Scale

jars and caps for filling

Recipe:
112 grams Aloe Butter
96 grams White Cocoa Butter
80 grams Grapeseed Oil
24 grams Stearic Acid
64 grams Emulsifying Wax
592 grams Distilled Water
24 grams Liquid Glycerin
16 grams Vitamin E Acetate
5 grams Liquid Germall Plus
10.00 grams Freesia Fragrance Oil
1 tsp Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter
2 drops of Purple Raspberry Color

Weigh all ingredients into the beaker except for the Liquid Germall Plus, Freesia Fragrance Oil, and Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter. Microwave for short bursts until all ingredients are melted. Once all the ingredients are melted, blend until all the ingredients are mixed well. Let the mixture cool and then add the Liquid Germall Plus, Freesia Fragrance Oil, Ultrafine Iridescent Glitter, and Purple Raspberry Color, and mix well. Pour into the containers of your choice.

This would be a great gift for dancers, or others that need some glitter on their skin when they perform. This would also be great for tweens, teens and others.

  1. Thanks, Andee. I’m not a glitter fan but it’s still fun to what what you’re up to
