Just for Him – Thick Foot Butter 2


Finished Foot Butter - Talk about thick!

Finished Foot Butter – Talk about thick!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have a few more recipes I want to share before it arrives. One of them I want to share is a mens cologne but that is for another day. Today I wanted to make a very thick, durable foot butter. Come join me!

I wanted to make something thick that could be applied in the morning just before socks are put on. I didn’t want it to be overly fluid or slick. I wanted something sturdy and reliable. I think I’ve got it!

Weighing Waxes

Weighing Waxes

Weigh everything except the fragrance oil and preservative into a microwave container. Microwave until things are mostly melted. (If things are hot and you start mixing, your stubborn materials will melt.) Mix well. We don’t want your foot butter to separate. Once things cool to around 120 F, add your fragrance and preservative. The butter will start to thicken at this temperature due to the high amounts of waxes. Make sure your fragrance and preservative are fully mixed. (Adding a tiny amount of color at this stage helps you make sure everything is mixed well. I added just a hint of blue using our diluted Grape Color.)

Adding Coconut Oil

Adding Coconut Oil

Put the lotion into a bag and pipe into jars. This butter is too thick to put into a bottle. Cap and label. Enjoy!

Notes: I tested this cream on my elbows, where the skin is very dry and rough. The butter rubbed in smoothly without too much grip. Once I rubbed it in, I felt I had a good layer of material on my skin that wasn’t greasy, heavy or easy to come off. 15 minutes later, I was pleased with how the butter was staying on the skin while keeping the skin soft. I am super happy with the results.

    Hello. I’ ve seen you use beeswax in several of your lotion recipes. Why do you use beeswax? What effect does the beeswax have on the texture of the lotion?
    Thanks before

      Triska,

      We add beeswax as a thickener. It gives lotions and creams a thick texture and helps create a barrier over the skin.
