# Technically, you can heat all of these ingredients, EXCEPT your essential oil(s) and fragrance(s)
# Heat PHASE A ingredients just until they’re melted.
# Take off heat and let sit for about 5-10 minutes
# Add COOL DOWN ingredients
# Stick it in the front of the freezer for about 5 to 10 minutes. BE CAREFUL of rapid temperature changes when using glass!
# Use a hand mixer to whip the butter if you want it fluffy. Mix until you’ve reached your desired consistency
# You can also just let it set, like a regular butter without whipping air into it.
# This is a shea-free version
# My Brazil Nut butter (from camdengrey.com) is a uber soft butter. It is not as firm as shea butter or Cupuacu butter
# Caprylic Capric Triglyceride will help to cut down on some of that greasy after-feel, but won’t remove it completely. I was shooting for a butter with a substantial feel.
