How to Make Easy and cheap Healiing Body Butter
- Put into two jars the same size as the one you used. With in a very short time it may start to seperate the oils. Don't worry. Just cap and leave 2-3 days. when you look again it will have incorperated nicely. And will look like a body butter. (It happened to me once.)
- Note: Queen Helene has two cocoa Butter cremes in the same jars but one has a butter feel and is a rewal cocoa butter. The other one is whiteish/yellow and is like a very thick lotion. For this recipe you want the lotiony one. You will have to open the jar to tell which you have. Sometimes they are beside each other sometimes they are mixxed together. If you get the wrong one Look through my recipes I have uses for that one also.
