It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas: Whipped butters






Is it" It's not even Hallowe'en yet! But for us crafty types, we need to start planning early! If you're a soaper, your busy season started in August to allow for cure times. For the rest of us, if we're ordering ingredients on-line, we should be awaiting our packages as I write.

If you don't believe me, try going into your local supply shop on a Saturday. It's a madhouse! A madhouse! 

If you're new to making your own products, it's not the best idea to try something for the first time a week before you plan to give it. You need to be able to see how it changes over time. Does the fragrance fade" Does it morph into something weird" Does the colour change" How does your preservative hold up over time"

Make small batches. Try 100 grams to 200 grams to start. You will have some failures from which you can learn a great deal, and so it's nice if you don't end up having to throw away every ingredient you've ordered.

If this is your first handmade Christmas, stick to things that don't contain water so you don't have to worry about preserving. You can make all kinds of lovely things from wax tarts and rolled beeswax candles to whipped butters to bath bombs, and more!

Join me over the next little while as we look at a few things you could make for a holiday or birthday present this year!

WHIPPED BUTTERS
These are super easy to make and often only require three ingredients - a butter, a liquid oil, and a fragrance or essential oil.

This vanilla latte coffee butter is super easy and only requires coffee butter, cocoa butter, a liquid oil, and your fragrance/essential oil. You can get a mica to colour it, if you wish. You can try all sorts of variations - pumpkin spice, hazelnut, cappucino, peppermint, and more!

You don't need to add a preservative to a whipped butter as it doesn't contain water and won't be exposed to water.

Choose an oil with a long shelf life. Don't choose something like grapeseed oil or hempseed oil, which have 3 month shelf lives, as they'll be rancid before you know it. You could add Vitamin E as an anti-oxidant - it isn't a preservative to prevent contamination, but can retard the rancidity of the oils - but if you're making a small batch with a long lived oil, you don't really need to do this easier.

Check out this post that includes a download link for my oil comparison chart. Or read more about oils in the emollients section.

You cannot use coconut oil or babassu oil as the base for a whipped butter as they have a really low melting point - 24?C or 76?F - which means they can easily melt and leak all over your purse, bathroom counter, car seat, and so on.

Get the ingredients and make some trial runs with small batches this week or next and watch how they do over time. Do they melt" Do they still smell nice" Do they feel nice on your skin" And so on. Keep great notes, so you can make what you like and never make what you hate again.
