Sweet Coffee Massage Butter 8


I am a total java junkie. If you want to invite me to coffee I won’t take any time to answer “Yes!”. You have convinced me already! šŸ˜‰ I am particularly fond of mochas or lattes. I mean, can you really go wrong with chocolate, coffee and cream. I don’t think so. Let’s go make a coffee massage butter that is sure to leave you and your skin in utter bliss. 

 

As a coffee junkie, I have ask how can one make a wonderful coffee scented product without coffee butter? In my opinion, you can’t! I find the coffee butter to be so tantalizing I can’t wait to use the finished product! Talking about making impatience going from bad to worse! Egads! Coffee Butter is very smooth, dense and creamy. I really like the way it feels.

I also added someĀ CupuaƧu Butter to add some warm, slightly earth cocoa notes. Talk about scrumptious! TheĀ CupuaƧu Butter also makes the butter a little firmer. I have several oils in this formulation that are liquid or melt at skin temperature.Ā CupuaƧu Butter is much like Cocoa Butter. Ā It is very hard but it is also very smooth. I also find I don’t feel as greasy after use.

Additionally, I added Castor Oil to this formulation. Castor is a thick and viscous oil that adds some drag to the skin. I wanted a massage butter that had to be slowly worked into the skin. I honestly love nothing better than to slowly pamper myself. Even something as simple as a massage given by oneself is so soothing and comforting. Castor Oil also increases the staying power or the “life” of the massage butter.

      I didn’t use a preservative because there is no water in this recipe. If you would like a preservative, I would recommend LiquaPar. I hope this helps!

    I tried to leave a cooment on Mama’s Hand Therapy lotion (there’s no temperature mentioned in that recipe. Just heat it up and cool it down and add preservative. I think there should be so novices know.) Anyway, the comment link brought me here. I was browsing the archives and found the recipe on pg 3 of Lotions & Creams.

      We don’t think a specific temperature must be achieved. The materials that are solid must be melted and otherwise not over heated. So the process is as simple as you have listed: weigh it, heat it, mix it, cool it.

      Cheers!
