Well, I've figured out a recipe for body butter, based on a 60% butter 40% oil formulation I heard:
- 4oz cocoa butter
- 40z shea butter
- 4 oz sweet almond oil
- 1oz tamanu oil (maybe? it's a bit pricey...)
- 1oz vit e oil (as a preservative, if I don't use tamanu oil)
- maybe some essential oil, to scent it like either vanilla or almond (or both?)
I just spent the last hour or so walking to the local organic market and back. On the way back I stopped at a yard sale and picked up some silk scarves to wear in my hair (finally!) since it's going to need some sort of cover as it grows... It's about 70 degrees and breezy, I wore a skirt for the first time all year I think, it goes down to my knees and I love it when it moves around in the wind.
I want to take a nap in the sun now.
