Have you tried making this in a larger batch at all. I am thinking of Christmas gifts as well, but I don't want to attempt a large batch and have it fall flat.
I'd only made a small batch & it went pretty quickly...within a few weeks to a couple of months, so I couldn't tell you for sure if it would fall flat after that. I can tell you that there was no funky odor, discoloration, nor separation of any kind for as long as I had it.

That looks awesome and probably smells delicious. I love coconut. Smiley
Thanks! You can scent it any way you'd like! I'm making soap this week & would like to make some manly bay rum scent for the fellas who don't want dry skin & also a blend of magnolia & sweet scents I'm calling 'sugar magnolia' ...MMMmmm!

Thanks for sharing the recipe.  I will make a point of trying this.

For any one who works with preservatives, which is the best type to use?

I generally use phenopip or optiphen, but this recipe doesn't need a preservative since there's no emulsion with water. An antioxidant like Vitamin E is all you need.

Thanks.  I guess what I was concerned about would be people still having damp hands when putting it on after their bath/shower..  Or it somehow otherwise coming into contact with water?  Is that being overly cautious?

Yeah I don't think that's an issue with body butter. Hmm, I know some people do add preservative to sugar scrubs in case water gets in it. Interesting question!

I've still only done a bit of research since the last post and learned that it's best applied when the body is still damp.  So that likely means damp fingers.  I would use a preservative, personally.  Especially if I made a big batch, or wanted to offer some as a gift to family/friends.

So I whipped up a batch of the body butter this afternoon.



I didn't use the exact formula posted but it was pretty close.  Thanks for sharing, I Sew Cute.
