2. “Use The Right Proportions”
As stated by Chelsea, “…less liquid oil will make a firmer, thicker butter and more oil will keep it fluffy and light.” Following this rule allows you to customize the consistency and level of moisture for your hair and skin. If you live in a dry climate, it might be beneficial to create a dense, thicker butter to give the skin more protection from moisture loss. Cold area? Butter containing more heavy liquid oils like jojoba will keep its soft consistency, but provide a significant amount of moisture and sealing to protect from the elements.
3. “Be Gentle when using heat”
Heat can easily destroy the natural properties of your butter and oil. Direct heat is a no-no! Use a double boiler, or create one using a small pan half full of water and a glass bowl. After the butter melts, turn off the heating element and remove the bowl from the pan. Stir, allow the mixture to cool to a medium consistency (about the texture of cake icing, or cake batter for a lighter butter), then whisk using a stand or electric mixer. Once you have the consistency you like, it is ready to be jarred!
