DIY Easy Tallow Body Butter

Your solution for an all-natural, preservative free, fat soluble rich moisturizer! Because, shouldn't we also be just as careful about what we put on our bodies as what we put in them?
The fats in tallow are similar to fats below our skin. Tallow is the perfect nourishing salve! 
No, you will not smell like grease. No, it will not clog pores. Yes, it absorbs easily. As easy as rendering the fat, mixing in essential oils (if you would like - this is optional), and whipping! It couldn't be easier! 
What you need:
4 tbs avocado oil (extra virgin olive oil or other neutral oil of your choice)
3-5 drops essential oil (optional)
What to do:
  1. Cut fat into small 1" pieces and place in a pot with high sides. 
  2. Over medium heat, stir occasionally for 20-30 minutes. The fat will melt and impurities will remain as solids/crackling. Do not let it start smoking. 
  3. Strain through muslin or cheesecloth into glass or metal container. 
  4. Discard solids. 
  5. Once at room temperature, stir in oil and essential oils, if you choose to. 
  6. Put fridge until solid. 
  7. Whip solid mixture until it appears light and fluffy. Ready to use! 

Store body butter at room temperature for up to 5 months.
