Coffee Oil Body Butter 9


Okay, the other week I made a really good Coffee Oil Lotion. It was so good in fact, I have already used up the little sample I kept for myself! I am devastated that it is gone already. I felt it was perfect in odor. Not too heavy, not too light. However, instead of making another lotion with Coffee Oil, I decided to make a body butter. Come join me for some more coffee scented fun!

I wanted to make a body butter that was a little different from what I view to be traditional body butter. For me, traditional body butter are thick. This one isn’t. In the jar, it is actually semi-fluid. In ways, it reminds me of yogurt while in the jar. However, get it on the skin and it acts totally different.

Once in contact with the skin, it acts like a liquid body oil. The change is bit startling but fun. This is something that any massage therapist would delight in working with! Mmn. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Schedule a little personal time with this body butter. You will enjoy every second of it!

If you know or are a massage therapist, there is an advantage to this recipe. You will be able to put it in a bottle with a pump for ease of use. No need to worry about fumbling with a jar with slick hands. Try it and tell me what you think. I want to know!

To keep this body butter in a semi solid state, I used Beeswax, Macadamia Butter and High Melt Point Shea Butter. The Beeswax helps create a barrier for the skin however, the percentage is low enough that it doesn’t feel heavy, waxy or greasy. The Macadamia Butter gives a nice creamy feel as well as nice glide. The High Melt Point Shea Butter helps keep this butter in a semi solid state while preventing any potential fractionation that might occur. Plus you get the luxury of Shea Butter!

For my liquid oils, I used Rice Bran Oil and Peach Kernel Oil. Rice Bran is a light to medium weight oil that is perfect for massage oils. Peach Kernel Oil is much lighter. It helped combat the heaviness that would come from the solid oils and waxes. These oils helped keep the lightness to this butter as well as give it its surprise element of melting upon contact of the skin.

I used a variety of extracts for extra goodies. You can use any extracts you may have on hand or if you don;t have any in your cupboard yet, I would suggest using a little more Peach Kernel Oil.

I consider Vitamin E Acetate to be irreplaceable in the this recipe. Vitamin E Acetate is an antioxidant. It helped prevent the oxidation of your oils. Have you ever had any oils that are really old and have a funny odor to them? Or even a lip stick taste funny as keeping it for a while? This is due to the oils oxidizing. Vitamin E Acetate helps prevent that giving your products a longer shelf life. Yay!

    This coffee oil body butter looks absolutely divine. I am picturing myself applying this all over damp skin after getting out of the bathtub. I am almost drooling over this recipe. I will most certainly be placing an order for the ingredients I do not have on hand. I can not wait to try this one!!

      Barb,

      I think you have a total grasp on this recipe. Since it is very soft, nearly fluid, then it would be perfect for dampish skin. I’m thinking of how dry my legs are at this time of year. Gee whiz, Wally, if I don’t do something about the dry ankles, feet and legs then people will think I am a reptile!

    Have you tried mixing any chocolate scents with the coffee oil products? If so, I’d love to hear if it worked out!

      Chocolate and coffee are meant for each other. They are a great pair and you can easily scent with a chocolate fragrance. May I suggest Chocolate Mousse? or maybe Mokalatta?

    could you try reformatting the Cafe Latte body cream using coffee oil ??? It is my customers’ favorite (and mine too!)

    Not a biggie,but your ounce recipe is a repete of the percentage. Though after last weeks lesson you have given us the tools to calculate it ourselves.
