Body Butter Won't Whip Up
by Sara P.
I tried making the lavender body butter recipe and followed pretty closely to the directions, but the body butter won't whip. I've tried whipping it for a long time and the consistency isn't changing at all. Did I possibly let the Shea and Cocoa butters melt too long? Is it supposed to look like liquid oil when you start whipping it? I'm using a wire whisk attachement for my hand mixer--would that make a difference?
Should I let the oil sit until it's somewhat solid and try again? Is there anything I can do to save/repurpose this mixture?
