Toning Mocha Body Butter
Today's Therapy Thursday is a Toning Mocha Body Butter from Mountain Rose Herbs.
Ingredients 20 whole coffee beans 1 cup organic refined coconut oil 1 cup organic refined shea butter 1 cup organic roasted cocoa butter (or wafers) 1 cup organic sunflower oil
Method Pour whole coffee beans into coconut oil. Heat on stovetop over low heat for 10 to 20 minutes. Once the oil has developed the desired fragrance, remove from heat and strain through a metal strainer. Melt coffee-infused coconut oil with remaining ingredients in a double boiler. Allow to cool slightly before pouring mixture into a large bowl. Put bowl in fridge until mixture begins to harden around the edges (about 45 minutes). The mixture should look cloudy. Whip with a hand mixer on high speed for 8 to 10 minutes until thick and fluffy. Put bowl back in fridge for another 5 to 10 minutes to set, then transfer into pantry jars. Store in a cool, dark place for up to 6 months.
