I'm making a lotion, and the recipe calls for cocoa butter. The trouble is, I don't have any, and going out and buying some is not an option. I don't have shea or mango butter either. The closest thing I can find is whipped body cream or just plain ol' butter. Is there anything I can substitute instead, or is what I have okay?

I could be wrong, but I'm thinking that neither of those is a particularly good option! Whipped body butter is already made, and butter...sounds greasy? but I have heard of people making soap with butter so...

I like making stuff. Rumor has it, I'm an elf. Like a Santa Elf, not one of those elegant LOTR types.  Mostly because I compulsively craft and partially because I have green shoes.

Coconut oil would be a better choice, this oil is hard in the jar just like cocoa butter is.  Otherwise you could try a hydrogenated oil ie.. crisco otherwise known as vegetable shortening, these are usually palm, soybean or cottonseed oils.
