Hello, Top of the morning to you! Today I am going to teach you how to make Vanilla coffee massage bars. These make great gifts! And are also great for some self care! This is an all natural recipe, and it works beautifully.
Lets start with what you are going to need. You are going to need; a microwavable bowl or measuring cup, a spoon to stir mixture, molds ( cupcake, silicone, ice cube, etc. ), measuring spoons, 1 tbsp. of shea butter, 1 tbsp. of coconut oil, coffee beans, vanilla extract, 1 tsp vitamin e oil, 6 tbsp. of cocoa butter.
Okay, now that you have all of your ingredients together, its time to party! STEP 1 in a microwave safe bowl or a microwave safe glass measuring cup ( the latter is preferable), put the 6 tbsp. of cocoa butter in, and melt in 30 second intervals. Please be careful, the mixture will become very hot, use a pot holder to remove bowl from microwave.
STEP 2 once the cocoa butter is melted, Add 1 tbsp. of shea butter, you should just be able to stir the butter into the cocoa butter while it is still hot, but if you can’t, put in microwave for 15 second intervals.
STEP 3 add the 1 tbsp. of coconut oil in and stir.
STEP 4 wait til the oil and butter mixture has cooled just a little, about 30 seconds, then add about 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 tsp vitamin E oil.
STEP 5 put 3-5 coffee beans in your molds. Pour mixture in molds and let set, and we are done! The lotion takes about 1 to 2 days to set, and then they are ready to use. To use, gently rub into skin, especially feet, back, etc. Happy massaging!
