I love making my own beauty products. It’s super fun to do and costs less than store bought. I’m a frugal gal so I’m always scavenging around in my cupboards for something new to make.
This Whipped Caramel Body Butter is a fun fall treat. Seriously….you really need to make it. The photos don’t do it justice as you can’t smell through the computer. It smells amazing and it’s addicting! It reminds me so much of the soft, chewy caramel candies that I get hungry just opening up the jar.
- 3/4 Cup Raw Shea Butter
- 2 Tablespoons Almond Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Caramel Extract
Using a double boiler melt together the Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Coconut Oil. Mix well. You can use any oil of your choosing. I used almond oil and coconut oil because I had it readily available. Grapeseed or Olive Oil would work as well. Make sure to keep the ratio of butter to oil the same. I used a 1/4 Cup of oil to 3/4 Cup of butter.
Pour the mixture into a freezer safe bowl and place in the freezer about 20 minutes or so to cool down. It should be semi-solid. Remove from the freezer and add the caramel extract to the mix. Whip about 3-5 minutes with a hand mixture. Store in a closed container. I like to use mason jars.
Note: It’s best to use Raw Shea Butter if you can find it. My local Walmart carries it in the natural beauty section next to the Cocoa Butter. Shea Butter is an excellent moisturizer and contains healing properties and is said to be able to improve many skin problems including blemishes, sunburn, wrinkles, eczema, itching and other skin conditions. I cannot say enough good things about Shea Butter. It’s seriously your skin’s best friend! If you don’t already have this stocked away in your closet make sure you invest in it. It’s worth it!
Enjoy and Happy “almost” Fall! Let me know in the comment section if you decide to try it yourself. I’d love to hear your thoughts!
