Body Butter Not Getting Whipped Up
(Santa Cruz, CA)
First time making body butter. A friend gave me all the ingredients, but not the measurements.
This is what I used:
4oz Shea Butter
1/4 cup beeswax (melted in double broiler)
4 oz cocoa butter
2 oz almond oil
2 oz vitamin E oil
2 oz coconut oil
1 oz olive oil
I melted the beeswax and shea butter in double boiler. Let it cool a bit and then added all other ingredients into mixer. Mixed for 5 minutes. Put in freezer for 10 minutes. Scraped sides and then whipped again for 10 minutes.
It looks gooey and not whipped.
Did I use too much oil? Any ideas on how to fix?
