Excellent Job! What kind of thread did you use to quilt with (i.e. cotton, nylon, etc...)?

Thanks! Do you think this would work if I re-melted the batch in the oven on the lowest temp?

Thanks, I was hoping there was some other way. I'm out of cocoa butter and I already made a good batch of whipped shea so I don't need another predominantly shea mixture. Oh well, next time I'll be more careful! Roll Eyes

Hi all, I've made my first batch of whipped cocoa/shea butter. Unfortunately, I added too much fragrance oil. I keep adding the liquid oil and whipping hoping that this will dilute the oil...Surprisingly, it's not working. Does anyone have any tips for toning down the fragrance? I don't want to scrap the whole batch. Please help!

I want to make this, but I have a couple questions:

Since Coconut Oil can be semi-solid/liquid at room temperature and you used more of it than the cocoa butter, does this body butter melt as soon as you touch it (i.e. become an oil vs a butter)?

I want a bit of a harder consistency, but cocoa butter is too hard at room temp to stand on it's own. If I added equal parts (or slightly less) coconut oil do you think the finished butter would still be smooth and easily spreadable?

Thanks for your help! Wink

I've done this three times since last week! It's wonderful, not just on your face but your body too. I made a big batch and poured water over my body and rubbed the salt/lemon mixture all over. My skin was so silky afterwards. When I put it on my face I get a pleasant warming sensation. Thanks for this!

Oops, meant convex curve! And I'm referring to the red bag in the links above.

Very nice! Do you just attach the zipper the same way you would when sewing a bag with liner? How is it able to stand up around the edges?

I hope these aren't obvious questions!  Huh
