new sandalwood lime everyday cream

So much snow fallen here in Livonia that we all have to go out there and shovel many times a week, and sometimes several times a day. It is isn't a one man job at all and these are the times I am glad I have boys.

The reason I mention it is because I need more butter for my bod and today, for the first time in a long time I have enough (time) set aside to make some creams for myself and some friends.
This cream should be fluffy yet dense, if you know what I mean. nothing is worse than jamming your fingers in air mixed with grease  that has collapsed in to a weird mush..
I have to admit, I get bored real quick with a cream that looks sloppy and there have been times I have scraped a jar all the way to where there was nothing left but air..sweet vanilla cacao air..
The cacao absolute had sunk to the bottom and it just relaxed there.

Today is the day I will make a tub of sandalwood lime butter for me-self.
I don't know what it is about distilled lime, but I do love it so much right now!
If you want some you should get is my recipe which I will list on etsy..

shea butter
avocado oil (california)
sea buckthorn oil
evening primrose oil
baobab oil
Indian sandalwood
distilled lime oil

Do you like that combo? What matters most really are the essential fatty acids and the scent should really be just enough to sweeten your skin and yet still hide until needed.
The sandalwood here hides like that in a way but when all is said and done, it is the thing you get later.           The perfumed wood and your musky you-ness..
I have been wearing this as an oil too. It is quite nice on a cold dreary winter's day or night..
Today it is sunny and the snow is reflecting the light beautifully. It is as if the plants know something is going to happen soon. It is just a matter of time.
Tomorrow shrouded in coldness again, we'll cold, as if it is fog, but it isn't, it is coldness and frozen water in the wind. It is very dramatic.. all of nature is..look at volcanos!
