How To Make Kokum Butter Foot Cream At Home

Kokum is a new product that is exciting everyone. When added to other recipes instead of cocoa butter it produces a product with an amazing quality and texture. Even though the consistency produced is noticeably thicker, we can still adapt other recipes and use it in those designed more for foot or hand creams.

Traditionally exotic countries have use Kokum as part of the care routine for damaged skins. Especially good for tired and worn feet. Cracked and calloused skins can be regenerated with the healing properties of Kokum. The thinking is that it can restore the flexibility and elasticity of the skin. Reducing wrinkles.

For the water phase of this preparation we can use peppermint water or even tea tree floral water. But any floral water will do if you have a particular one you like. To make the infusions, simply pour boiling water over a peppermint tea bag. Just be careful there are no strange additives in the tea bags.

Heat Both The Oil And Water Phases Of Our Kokum Butter Foot Cream

Step Four

Now we need to carefully keep heating both the water phase and the oil phase. We are looking to match the temperatures of each phase.  Once each phase has reached 167-176 degrees Fahrenheit or 75-80 degrees Celsius we are ready. Remove the water phase from saucepan of water.

Use a cloth as it will be very hot.

Combine The Water And Oil Phase Of Our Kokum Butter Foot Cream 

Step Five

Now we are going to combine the two phases together. Place the frother into the oil phase pan and make sure it is making contact with the bottom of the pan. We do not want to introduce too much air into our mixture.

Pour In The Water Phase Of Our Kokum Butter Foot Cream

Step Six

Now we can combine the two phases. In a steady stream start pouring the water phase into the oil phase. Use the frother to continually combine the two phases. Continue pouring and blending for approximately 1 minute.

Cool The Combined Phases Of Our Kokum Butter Foot Cream

Step Seven

Once both the water phase and oil phase are combined we can remove the pan from the heat. Now we want to start cooling our Kokum butter body cream. So place the pan into a bowl of cold water and continue stirring with the electric frother to cool. The mixture will now start to thicken slightly.

We Have Completed Our Kokum Butter Foot Cream

Step Nine

Now all we need to do is spoon our completed foot cream into a nice glass jar. Make sure to label the jar with the ingredients and also the date you made it.

To use the foot cream, we can simply just rub it into our feet, hands and elbows. Pay special attention to areas of skin that are hard or cracked or calloused.
