Vanilla Mint Body Butter

by Allison B. Kontur (

You will need:

8 oz Natural Body Butter


Phase 1: In a stainless steel or glass mixing utensil, combine Natural Body Butter with fragrance oil until well blended.

Phase 2: Split Natural Body Butter between two glass or stainless mixing utensils. In one container, add mica until you have achieved a nice reddish-pink shimmer. Keep in mind that the more mica used, the more likely it will remain on your skin during application. Err on the side of caution by starting small. You can always add more mica if you aren't satisfied with the result.

Phase 3: Using a pastry bag or a baggie with the corner snipped off, begin piping the body butter into containers. Get creative by piping in layers or stripes to get the effect of a mint candy!

Note: Our Natural Body Butter is very emollient and contains 50% oils & butters. Consider packaging in 2oz or 4oz containers as a little goes a long way. Another method would be to layer in an airless pump!

FYI: Because of the high oil content of the base, our water-based liquid dyes are not compatible for this project and will "bead" on top of the butter rather than blend into it.
