Vetiver and Vanilla Body Cream Recipe

This skincare product may look complicated to make just from the ingredients list. But really, don't be intimidated, it is actually quite simple and makes just an absolutely lovely end product.

There is something about the combination of coconut, vanilla and vetiver that ends up making something that feel super luxurious and divine. This vetiver and vanilla body cream is something your friends will all covet and will be putting regular orders in for your to make for them.

The vetiver and vanilla body cream is already super opulent, but if you are a queen and it's your birthday you can even raise it further by adding patchouli and rose. If rose otto is a tad too pricey for you, think about adding rosewater instead of the spring water. Again consider swapping the vanilla extract for almond oil macerated with a vanilla pod.

Whatever combination or recipe you choose, you will not be disappointed. Vetiver and vanilla body cream is wonderfully sensual product and just a delight to make and use.

How To Start Making Vetiver and Vanilla Body Cream

Step One

We of course start with the oil phase of the preparation. Into the double boiler we add the shea butter and the coconut oil. Start heating and then add in the emulsifying wax.

Now We Start The Water Phase of The Vetiver and Vanilla Body Cream

Step Three

Now we need another double boiler or a glass jug in a saucepan of hot water. So pour in the spring water into the double boiler or jug and start warming. Now add in the glycerin.

Now We Need To Match The Temperatures Of The Oil And Water Phases

Step Four

Keep heating the oil phase ingredients until they are all melted and combined. Now we need to check the temperatures of each phase. We want to start getting them close to the same temperature so we can start combining both phases together. So keep checking the temperatures of both phases until they both reach 167-176 degrees Fahrenheit or 75-80 degree Celsius.

Remove The Water Phase From The Heat

Step Five

Now carefully remove the water phase from the heat or the double boiler or saucepan. Obviously it will be very hot, so please take care. Use a good insulating cloth as we will need to hold it for a while.

Now We Can Start To Froth The Oil Phase 

Step Six

Pop the milk frother into the oil phase which is still sitting in the double boiler. Turn the frother on and make sure it is touching the bottom of the pan so it is under the liquid. This will reduce down the number of bubbles and air we introduce into the mixture.

Now We Are Going To Combine The Water Phase Into The Oil Phase Of Our Vetiver And Vanilla Body Cream

Step Seven

Now with the frother still going and under the surface, gently start pouring a steady stream of the water phase into the oil phase. Continue pouring for approximately one minute and both sets of ingredients are combined and mixed together.

Now We Can Start Cooling Our Vetiver And Vanilla Body Cream

Step Eight

Once all the ingredients are combined lift the double boiler pan and place it into a bowl of cold water to start cooling the body cream. Continue to blend until the mixture starts to thicken slightly.
