Homemade Organic Pumpkin Spice Lotion

Wow, does this sound good!?  Props to Susie for the brilliant idea of using paprika as a natural food coloring. I've spent time in the kitchen playing with recipes and I love so much about natural ingredients (i.e. no parabens!) but I've recently added mango butter to my arsenal of 'moisturizers with fabulosity'!  Sometimes a recipe is overwhelmed with the scent of chocolate when I use cocoa butter, so this recipe is getting a tweak today, using organic mango butter. Included below are photo links and word links you can simply click to order the ingredients from Amazon to make this yourself, and you'll have plenty leftover to make other items that you will use everyday.

1 teaspoon organic beeswax
1/4 teaspoon organic paprika


Melt mango butter, coconut oil, almond oil and beeswax in a double boiler (a makeshift double boiler using a glass or metal bowl placed on top of a pot of low-bowling water works perfectly - that’s what I use). Stir frequently until all oils and butters are melted together.   

Add paprika and let it give your mixture it's orange color. Let it sit about 10 minutes. 
The paprika will not dissolve, so transfer the melted lotion mixture into a mixing bowl and stop pouring before you pour the paprika in the bowl. Leave that in your 'melting pot' and place your mixing bowl in the fridge.

When the lotion is almost solid, but not completely, remove it from the fridge and add your Young Living essential oils. Whip it with a handheld mixer for a minute or so. If you aren’t satisfied with the texture of the lotion, you can let it get closer to room temperature and it will be easier to whip.

Transfer your fabulous lotion into a glass or metal pump jar, or any jar with a tight fitting lid and use as you would any body lotion. Try to resist eating this one! Hee hee!

Is the paprika just for color or is there a health benefit?

Just for color. :-)
