|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! 😉 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 some Cupuaçu Butter to add some warm, slightly earth cocoa notes. Talk about scrumptious! The Cupuaçu Butter also makes the butter a little firmer. I have several oils in this formulation that are liquid or melt at skin temperature. Cupuaçu Butter is much like Cocoa Butter. 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.
Weigh everything into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until everything is liquid. Stir well. Allow the solution to cool, periodically whipping it. The butter should be a light tan color when all done. Enjoy!

I must say, you have the most wonderful job in the world!! (goofs and all)
how about a perserative??? It sounds like a an awesome reciepe!!!
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.
This looks awesome! Anything that could replace the stearic acid? Thx
I would try things like Soy Wax, Candelilla Wax, Carnauba Wax or even Beeswax.
