Method:
Take the lid off the mousse base and place the container of mousse in the microwave on high for thirty seconds. Then empty the contents into a mixing bowl. The base should be warm and soft but not runny. Add the milk powder, lustre sparkle and 50 drops of Venus fragrance to the mousse base. Mix the mousse with an electric hand beater till the mousse is thick and creamy. I like to pipe the mousse into the container through a plastic piping bag with meringue nozzle. Cleopatra milk bath mousse is the most heavenly bath/shower product. Cover yourself with this luxurious, soap crème and have the most delicious wash you have ever had in your whole life. This mousse makes a wonderful gift for your mother on Mothers' Day.

The water must be hot but not so hot that you can't hold your hand under it. Do not use cold water and do not use boiling water from the kettle. Only hot water from the tap. Once you have added the hot water to the lotion base stir well and remove from stove. Melt your shea butter in the microwave and add this to the cooling mixture as well as 50ml Venus fragrance and 10ml lustre sparkle. Beat the mixture with an electric hand beater as it cools so it is thick and rich and creamy. Fill the Cleopatra body butter into jars, label and decorate. This is a stunning body butter. It is thick, creamy and very moisturising. Your mother would absolutely love a jar of this for Mothers' Day.

Requirements:
500ml Body Butter Base (Soap Barn)
Orange fragrance (Soap Barn)
Chocolate fragrance (Soap Barn)
Orange liquid soap colouring (Soap Barn)
Lotion jars (Soap Barn)
Body Butter stickers (Soap Barn)

Method:
Melt your Body Butter Base in the microwave for 3-4 minutes. When it is melted and pour it into a pot on the stove over a low heat. Run your hot water tap till the water reaches bath water temperature. Fill your empty 500ml jar with water and add that to the melted Body Butter Base. You can fill it 3-4 times (ie 1.5lt - 2lt) with water to get a good body butter consistency. In the recipe above I used 3 x 500ml water. After you have added the water remove the pot from the stove. You can now add your colour and fragrance. Do not overdo the colour because you don't want to stain anybody's skin. Add as much fragrance as you like. Leave the mixture to cool and stir through every few minutes. When the mixture is cool you can beat it with a small electric handbeater to get a thick, smooth consistency. Fill your jars and share with everyone you love because this is a very special body butter.
