I went to a 4-day workshop last March to learn to make cremes and butters from scratch but I've not yet become confident enough to stray from the recipe. The problem with that is that the recipe I leaned is for a batch of about twelve 4-oz containers. I happened across a quick and easy whipped butter recipe of Andrea Butje's in one of my aromatherapy journals and since it was for a single 4-oz container, I decided to give it a go. I must say it was quite simple and the consistency is lovely but it's really, really heavy. Fortunately, that's exactly what I needed but also one of the reasons I didn't want a bigger batch - I didn't feel like I'd have much of a market for anything that heavy. This one is for a young man whose hands are dry and cracked from weight lifting. My guess is that he's using rosin on his hands which, of course, further dries them out. This recipe has shea butter, coconut oil, Jojoba, aloe vera and my additions of Helichrysum and German Chamomile.
