Plant Butters: Hardness & Melting Points
We're going to be making a lot of body butter around here in just a tick, so I thought it might be an idea to do a quick run-down of some of the plant butters worth considering.
There's a world of fabulous butters to choose from, so there's no need to limit yourself. Depending on the consistency, feel, and properties you are looking for, you can create your own perfect body butter.
Each butter has its own properties, melting point, scent, and feel. A butter is often characterized as hard, semi-hard etc. I have sectioned a few butters below by hardness (some of the upcoming formulas will specify a certain amount of 'hard' or 'soft' butter). This chart will hopefully be useful (and maybe even inspirational) for you.

Have you ever tried this avocado seed butter or is it beter to stay away from using it? I already bought a kilo toen i saw these posts online saying it is considered not Naturalis but is relaxed to hydroginated avocado oil and not the seeds.
I highly appreciate your opnion.
Thanks and kind regards
in your blog any revérence yet to avocado butter Made from the seeds. Is it because it is not be considered a Naturalis sourced butter?
If your supplier has given you documentation with the product, there should be a description of the ingredients. If it is 'persea gratissima seed butter' then it is indeed made form the seeds. If the ingredients description is 'hydrogenated persea gratissima seed oil, XXXX, XXXX' then it is not a seed butter but a 'composed' butter. I hope you'll get back with another comment when you have checked. :)
I'm a "first timer" here, just enrolled with FormulaBotanica and I've noticed your website mentioned there.
I am glad I've found you, I've already seen some very informative and interesting comments so I wanted to say "Thank you".
I wish you a beautiful summer and all the best.
Sorry for "a beautiful summer" but where I live we had some gorgeous autumn days, sunny and warm and my brain played me this time.
So I wish you a beautiful autumn :)
And my name is Ileana, I thought this info will get to you as I don't use to hide under "unknown".
All the best to you.
Thanks and appreciate you insight and knowledge!!
