I bought a whipper with a bowl that turns so I could turn it on and walk away (I'm not the patient type). Then I just put some stuff together that I had standing... first, I used too much oil (or too little butters). The mixture didn't set, it stayed fluid. So I added more melted cocoa butter, mixed for a while and let it set; then, when it became more solid I turned on the whipper again.
The result is fabulous... a luscious, lovely fluffy cream that looks like orange frosting on a cake, but then creamier X-D It's softly orange due to the Rosehip CO2 extract, but your skin doesn't turn orange when you apply it ;-)
The most wonderful part is: it isn't greasy at all! I was a bit afraid of that, but my skin sucked it in immediately.... and no greasy layer. Loveeeeee it!
30 gr sheabutter
20 gr mangobutter
15 gr cocoabutter
35 gr grapeseedoil
6 gr wheatgerm oil
10 gr aloe macerate (in soybean oil)
10 gr coconut oil (solid)
5 gr rose hip CO2
4 dr Styrax benzoin
7 dr Cymbopogon martinii var martinii
5 dr Salvia sclarea
10 dr Citrus reticulata
I combined all the oils and solids, except for the rosehip, and heated them over low heat until melted. I was afraid of graininess, but none whatsoever
In the whipping bowl I added the rosehip and essential oils.
I'm now thinking... would it be even better if I just melted the solids and then applied the oils? Maybe it wouldn't make a difference?
I thought when whipping, it wasn't necessary to melt the solids first, but all the recipes I checked did... I couldn't imagine whipping an unmelted cocoabutter anyway ;-)
Hope to hear your comments!
PS I filled 5 50gr-jars with it... so it became twice as voluminous! Fluff to the max X-D
