Nutty Butt Butter: Your Little Cellulite Secret

Hi Sugar Cakes!! I stumbled upon this amazinggggg site called Crunchy Betty!! It has so many wonderful tutorials for skin and hair care. I fell head over heels in love with this DIY,  since I made the resolution for a healthier better me in 2013. (Don’t we all?!) Anyway, check out this site or just the tutorial! try it out and tell me about it!

 

The new and improved Nutty Butt Butter.

It’s been tweaked a bit since my first recipe, and heaven love it, it’s pretty danged awesome. However, the recipe I made is pretty intense in terms of ingredients and cost, so at the bottom, I’ll give you a pared down recipe you can use if you don’t want to shell out the monies for the whole thing.

When you make this, you’ll actually do it in two parts (over a week), but both parts are easy like Sunday morning.

Nutty Butt Butter, Step 1, Infusing the Oils

A week or two before you’re ready to make your nutty butt butter lotion bars, you’ll need to start infusing oils with ground coffee. The first recipe didn’t include infusing oils, and I didn’t really think the coffee had gotten in deep enough to have much effect.

(As you probably know, coffee extract is included in almost every store-bought cellulite treatment available … because it’s so danged effective.)

 

 

Coffee-Infused Oils

  • 3 Tbsp tamanu oil
  • 2 Tbsp evening primrose oil
  • 3 Tbsp argan oil
  • 1/4 c. hazelnut oil
  • 1/4 c. sweet almond oil
  • 1 c. ground coffee

In a jar, combine all ingredients. Put the lid on and shake well. Store for 1-2 weeks, shaking every day or two. At the end of two weeks, strain through a cheesecloth or coffee filter.

 

Coffee Infused Oils (Simple Version)

  • 4 Tbsp tamanu oil
  • 3/4 c. sweet almond or hazelnut oil
  • 1 c. ground coffee

In a jar, combine all ingredients. Put the lid on and shake well. Store for 1-2 weeks, shaking every day or two. At the end of two weeks, strain through a cheesecloth or coffee filter.

Feel free to substitute oils where and how you want, but the end result should be about 1 cup of oils. You’ll lose a bit of oils while infusing and straining (they’ll stick to the coffee), and the final yield is a bit over 3/4 of a cup of oil.

Here’s the finished coffee-infused oils:

 

Finished, strained coffee-infused oils. Dark and rich and smells soooo good.

 

The recipe below calls for 1/2 c. oil, since that’s what I made and measured, but if you want to use ALL your oil for this, just make the recipe plus a half recipe. Pretty easy.

Nutty Butt Butter – The Recipe

For this recipe, which yields two medium sized bars, you’ll need the following things:

 

Also, if you want your bars to be fancy, too, you’ll want some whole-bean coffee to float on the top at the end.

It’s nice to have a kitchen scale when you do this, but if you don’t, this recipe’s going to help you out a lot. This is because I do not have a kitchen scale, so everything I did was eyeballing.

Instead of 3 oz, think 1/2-cup. The only caveat is, you’ll use a little less than half a cup of the oils (because they’re heavier). And, you’ll want to smush down the grated beeswax well while you’re measuring, because it’s lighter.

Got it? A little under 1/2 c. of coffee-infused oil. And a tightly packed 1/2 c. of grated beeswax. The cocoa butter can just be measured out (shaved) as normal. No need to pack.

After you’ve measured out your ingredients, add the cocoa butter and beeswax to a double boiler (or makeshift double boiler, with one smaller pot sitting above a larger pot with steaming water). Stir well.

 

Let the beeswax/cocoa butter melt ALMOST completely, and then add in your coffee-infused oils.

 

Once the cocoa butter/beeswax is almost all melted, add in your coffee-infused oil and stir constantly, until the whole mixture is completely melted and liquid.

Now you have to move fast. FASTER, PEOPLE.

Move the mixture off the burner, and start dropping in your essential oils.

Good essential oils for cellulite busting: Cypress, rose geranium, juniper berry, grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass, rosemary.

 

Drop in your celluite-busting essential oils – somewhere around 40 drops will do.

 

The only essential oil I consider absolutely essential as one of your choices is rose geranium. It’s not just great for breaking up the yuckbumps, it also blends divinely with the coffee smell. Makes you wanna lick the lotion bar. Just a little. Just to see.

Stir as you’re dropping in the essential oil, and then pour immediately into your molds. However! If your mixture has hardened a little at this point, you can put it back over the double boiler just until it remelts. THEN pour it in.

 

Pour it in your molds quickly, ’cause it hardens fast.

 

In the last post, I had several people ask me about the mold I was using. It’s just a jumbo silicone ice cube tray I ordered from Amazon a year ago or so. The size is great. Just enough to hold in your hand comfortably. More than a handful is too much. (Yes. That is what he said.)

As SOON as you get that poured into your molds, if you’re going to top it with coffee beans, start sprinkling them in. For mine, it was somewhere between 20-25 beans per bar. They float right at the top, and when it hardens, they stay there.

 

Coffee beans float right on the top. The little sailors.

 

Now just pop it into your freezer for about 20 minutes, and then slide the lotion bars out into your hot little hands.

 

Nutty butt butter. All done and lookin’ caramel coffee-like.

 

My educated guess is that the way you’ll get the most mileage out of these things is by dry body brushing (especially your problem areas) before you shower, and then apply the lotion bars to your problem spots after you shower.

And here’s the recipe!

 

Nutty Butt Butter

  • Just shy of 1/2 c. coffee-infused oil (or 3 oz.) – recipe above
  • 1/2 c. shaved cocoa butter (or 3 oz.)
  • 1/2 c. grated beeswax, or beeswax pellets (or 3 oz.)
  • 20 drops rose geranium essential oil
  • 10 drops cypress essential oil
  • 10 drops rosemary or juniper essential oil
  • Whole-bean coffee (for appearance, optional)

In a double boiler, combine the cocoa butter and beeswax and melt almost completely. Add the coffee-infused oils and stir well until everything is melted and warm. Remove from heat and drop in the essential oils, stirring well. Immediately pour into the molds (or reheat, if the mixture has hardened, and then pour). Sprinkle on whole-bean coffee. Pop your molds into the freezer for 20 minutes, then remove the bars and enjoy. Store in a small jar or other storage device. These should last 1-2 years.
