Bath Butter Recipe
Fills two 8-ounce jars
16 ounces of bath butter
2 1/2 tablespoons of glycerin
8 drops of DWP colorant
2 1/2 to 3 teaspoons of fragrance oil
3/4 cup sugar (we used standard white sugar that you bake with)
1 cup medium coarse sea salts
Whip the bath butter with electric mixer unitl it begins to get smooth. Then add the glycerin, color and sugar. Continue mixing until light and fluffy. Fold in the medium coarse sea salt and fragrance. Spoon mixture into jar.
NOTE: If you find it difficult to get the mixture into the jar, do the following:
Scoop all of the mixture from the mixing bowl into a 4-cup microwaveable dish. A glass measuring cup works well. Set microwave on medium heat and heat the mixture for 3 minutes, remove and stir gently. Place back in the microwave for another 1 to 2 minutes. DO NOT OVERHEAT. Every microwave heats differently, so keep your eye on the mixture. You just want the mixture soft enough to pour into the jar.
