Glitter Pumpkin Spice Body Butter Recipe

© Rebecca Dawn Dillon

Ingredients:

1.25 oz. refined shea butter
1.5 oz. kokum butter
.25 oz. candelilla wax
1 oz. pumpkin seed oil
.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
.4 oz. biodegradable gold glitter
.05 oz. pumpkin spice fragrance oil
1/2 mL vitamin E oil (optional)

Instructions:

You’ll need a digital scale to make my pumpkin spice body butter recipe as you’ll be weighing out all of the necessary ingredients with the exception of the vitamin E oil.

If you are planning to make more homemade bath and body recipes in the future, I highly recommend purchasing a Baker’s Math scale. Weighing ingredients is not only more accurate than using liquid measurements, but it also allows you to easily re-size a recipe by a percentage and figure the correct percentage of essential oils, fragrance oils and preservatives that you would need when changing a recipe or developing your own.

Begin by weighing out the shea butter, kokum butter and candelilla wax. Combine in a double boiler and heat over medium to medium-low heat until melted. Alternately, you can also combine your ingredients in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass scientific beaker and heat in a microwave until melted at 40% power. (I’ve found that glass beakers come in super handy especially when making cream eyeshadows and lip balms!)

Once melted, remove from heat. Then weigh out the pumpkin seed oil and stir into the melted butters and wax. Follow with the fragrance oil and kaolin clay, weighing each ingredient first, then mixing into the body butter. Using a plastic graduated transfer pipette, measure out 1/2 mL (or about 10 drops) of the vitamin E oil and mix in.

Finally, weigh out the glitter. (I used eco-friendly biodegradable glitter from The Sparkle Party.) Use .4 oz. of glitter for a bold look or half the amount for a more subtle appearance. (Alternately, if glitter isn’t your thing, you can simply omit it entirely.) Whisk the glitter into the body butter mixture with a fork until well combined.

As the body butter starts to thicken, remix, then spoon into an eco-friendly 4 oz. brown paperboard jar with a lid. (You can find these recyclable, renewable and biodegradable brown paperboard containers at SKS Bottle & Packaging in a variety of sizes.)

Once your pumpkin spice body butter fully solidifies, cap and label your container as desired for personal use or gifting. Washi tape and scrapbooking/planner stickers are a simple and easy way to add a bit of pizazz to your jars.

If you want to recreate my pumpkin spice body butter recipe to sell, you’ll need to follow good manufacturing practices (GMP) when making your product. You’ll find that the book, Good Manufacturing Practices for Soap and Cosmetic Handcrafters by Marie Gale, is a valuable resource if you’re just getting started making your own homemade soaps, skin care products and cosmetics.

In addition to GMP, you’ll also need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your products. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English by Marie Gale, spells out everything you need to know to legally label your products.
