It's lovely, it sinks right into your skin with a slight sheen left.  Wink

Sounds like a nice butter. I love cocoa butter!

Does it have a chocolatey scent (like white chocolate)? I always think that cocoa butter smells white chocolatey, and with the vanilla, i bet its gorgeous!

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

It's semi-hard until you spread it on your skin, then it melts onto the skin for easy absorbtion  Wink I guess if you lived in a warmer climate you might need to alter the mix a little, but I find that here in England, that ratio is fine for a butter that is softly solid most of the time.  Wink You want it to be easily scoopable with your fingers.

Thank you so much for the tutorial!
I was wondering if it would still work using other oils. I was thinking about using some of my organic oils: jojoba, nut etc... Huh

I think it would probably be quite runny; it would work as an oil, but it just wouldn't be so solid  Wink
