My first attempt at making body butter

So I made my first batch of body butter that I found at Rawmazing! It was fairly simple to make, though the total time was a few hours because of the cool down times. First I created a double boiler by using a stainless steel pot, and a heat resistant glass dish. I dumped the coconut oil and shea butter into the glass dish to melt them.
Then I placed it on the counter to cool for 30 minutes
Before letting it solidify, I added essential oils (vanilla) and I used Almond Glow a mixture of vitamin E, Coconut, Olive and Lanolin oil. This replaced the almond oil in the recipe only to lower cost. It's in a continuous state of liquid due to all the other oils in it (besides coconut which is a solid). I then placed the glass dish in the freezer for it to set up, then whipped it when it was ready! Voila!! Easy peasy, and it made a TON (Below is just one of the mason jars I used)
I will say it is a bit greasy going on, and A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY!!! Trust me. My skin is super soft now, and I can't wait to continue to use it. Rawmazing states it has about a 6 month shelf life :)
