Rainkissed Mimosa Body Balm Recipe

 

Rainkissed Mimosa is the perfect understated fragrance. It’s light, soft and fresh, making it a great match for homemade body balm. Paired with a recipe that will leave your skin silky and hydrated, this duo can’t be beat!

 

You’ll need:

1 cup Cocoa Butter

1 cup Mango Butter

1/3 cup Avocado Oil

1 tsp Vitamin E Oil

Rainkissed Mimosa Fragrance Oil

Jar with lid (I like the mini heremes jars for this)

 

Step 1: Combine the cocoa butter and mango butter in a double boiler (or similar set-up) and melt over medium heat until liquid form.

Step 2: Remove the melted butter from the heat and allow to cool slightly (10 minutes) before stirring in the avocado oil, vitamin e and fragrance oil. You can use up to 1 TBS of fragrance oil depending on how strong you want your body balm to smell.

Step 3: Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes to cool. When the edges start to become opaque, it’s ready.

Step 4: Using an electric mixer whip the mixture on high speed. The mixture will slowly turn from clear/yellow, to opaque and creamy white.

Step 5: Scoop into an airtight container for storage and keep in a cool dry place in between use.

 

ENJOY!

 

*This recipe will last up to 6 months if properly stored. If you’d like to increase the shelf life, consider adding a preservative!

  1. HOW WILL I DETERMINE THE AMOUNT OF PRESERVATIVE NEEDED FOR THIS RECIPE? IF THE BUTTERS ARE TOO OILY, WHAT CAN I USE AND THE AMOUNT?

    1. You can use a preservative such as Germaben ii E, which has a usage rate of 0.5% to 1% of the total recipe; in this case, the recipe is around 20.28 oz. 1% of that amount is around 0.2028 oz of preservative.

      If the recipe is too oily for your liking, you can substitute the Vitamin E and Avocado oils with a light weight oil like Jojoba oil. Also, you can consider adding something like Isopropyl Myristate (IPM) at a rate of 1% to 10% of the total recipe, which will reduce the greasy feeling dramatically!
