Spiced Coffee Butter Stick 2


I love spices and I love coffee. When you mix the two together, I am a very happy camper. I wanted to make a lotion stick because they are easy to apply and sometimes can double act as a solid perfume. I am more than happy to smell like a spiced latte or a kitchen. 😉 Come join me more some skin goodness and scented fun!

First I started with Beeswax. Beeswax makes this formulation hard enough to stay in a lotion bar tube. It also adds some drag to the product which is why it can be used as both a skin care product and a perfume stick.

I also used High Melt Point Shea. I rarely like to miss out on the luxury of Shea Butter but when you have an anhydrous formulation that contains Shea Butter, you always run the risk of fractionation to occur. High Melt Point Shea Butter reduces that risk.

Next, I used Aloe Butter. Why use Aloe Butter? It is dreamy! It melts on the skin and it is somewhat silky in texture. No wonder why it is a favorite in lip balms and body butters.

I used a total of three liquid oils. One of them being Cherry Oil. Cherry Oil is light in color and it weight. It contributes glide and makes the final stick not feel so heavy as it potentially could be.

The other liquid oil I used at a slightly higher percentage was Black Currant Oil. Black Currant Oil is high in gamma-linolenic acid which helps the skin renew itself. This means it helps keep the skin soft, smooth and supple.

Lastly I used my specialty oil and my fragrance oil. However, in this case my specialty oil is used as much for odor as it is for color and texture. I find it amazing that one oil can hold so many roles. Wow!
