So it’s winter here in Michigan. My hands are doing this:
It’s not pretty. Or comfortable.
But behold, the power of Tallow! I present whipped tallow body butter. This stuff is a-freaking-mazing.
A little goes a long way. It does not burn going on my chapped hands like coconut oil tends to. It has staying power, even after hand washing. My life is better now.
It’s pretty basic:
1 cup beef tallow, melted
2T olive oil
A couple drops Essential oil if desired
-Combine your oils and let solidify (I put in fridge for about 20 min)
-whip it up! A Kitchenaid mixer is very helpful for this step.
