This warm colored massage bar is made with Angelica Root Essential Oil, which has a subtle, spicy aroma and provides a warming sensation while helping to increase circulation and stimulate the senses. The Warming Massage Bar is colored with Paprika to give it a warm orange tint on the top of the bar.
Warming Massage Bar
Makes one 4 ounce bar
Fine Mesh Strainer or Cheesecloth
Massage Bar Mold
Combine 1/2 ounce Babassu Butter, 1 ounce Fractionated Coconut Oil, and 1/2 teaspoon Paprika Powder in a double boiler and heat for 10 – 15 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer or a cheesecloth to remove the Paprika Powder. After the oil has been strained, return it to the double boiler and add 1/2 ounce Candelilla Wax. Once the wax has melted completely, remove it from the heat and add 1/8 teaspoon of the Essential Oil. Pour the mixture into a Massage Bar Mold. The first layer of this bar will have to cool completely before you add the second layer. You may want to put the bar in the refrigerator while you prepare the oils for the second layer. Clean and dry the double boiler than add 2 ounces Fractionated Coconut Oil, 1 ounce Babassu Butter, and 1 ounce Candelilla Wax. Heat the mixture until completely melted, than remove from heat and add the remaining Essential Oil (1/8 tsp and 1/4 teaspoon). Pour over first layer in the Massage Bar Mold. Allow the bar to cool completely before attempting to remove it from the mold. Removing it prematurely can cause the bar to crack or break.
Gently rub the Warming Massage Bar onto the skin. When the bar contacts skin it should begin to melt. Use the bar to coat a generous amount of oil onto the skin and then set it aside while you massage. The Warming Massage Bar should be packaged in a tin or cello bag when not in use. This recipe contains Angelica Root Essential Oil, which can potentially irritate certain skin types. If any irritation occurs discontinue use immediately and wash the skin with soap and water. Angelica Root Essential Oil is also a strong photosensitizer, and should not be used on the skin within 4 hours of sun exposure. Angelica Root Essential Oil should also not be used on or around pregnant women, babies, or children.
