Coco-Nutter Body Butter Recipe

Do you love using body butters?  Here is a recipe by Jaime Neinstadt from Saffire Blue called Coco-Nutter Body Butter that is a nut oil based cream that is very rich and has the consistency of whipped butter.  It goes on smoothly and absorbs very well into the skin.  This recipe takes only 15 minutes to make and results in approximately 3.6 ounces.  This recipe has a shelf life of 3 months but the editor recommends adding a preservative for shelf life stability.  I would highly recommend adding a preservative since the first ingredient is distilled water. Also, I would consider this more of a cream than a body butter because of the fact that it has water in it.  From the classes I have taken at The Nova Studio that a true body butter does not contain water.
