      As SAHS stated, this does take a while to thicken up so I I let it sit for fifteen minutes over the ice before attacking with the blender. It took less than a minute on the blenders lowest setting to whip up.
      Like SAHS, I think this is a bit to oily. This is an excellent body lotion for my very dry skin, but it's a bit too greasy to use for hand cream.
      I will definitely make this again, but halve the oil used.

      This takes quite a while to thicken up, but looks great when it does! I used jojoba oil instead of almond oil, and orange essential oil (it smells great with the cocoa, but is a bit too sickly-sweet after a while). It was a bit more oily than I'd like, but is great for dry skin. I'm going to try a few more shea recipes, but if I make this one again I'll halve the amount of oil.

      I made this up and WOW am I impressed! Used the right way it is absorbed into the skin and is not greasy at all. I had deeply cracked heals and it made them smooth in two days! I have such dry skin on my legs that they were flaking and splitting - smooth again in two days. The best way to use it is on damp skin because then your skin is like blotting paper and it drags all that goodness down into itself. I put a bit of sandlewood oil in mine and it smells beautiful.

      To Chef # 454174, Shea is a very absorbant cream, what you normally use (amounts) for most creams does NOT have to be used with Shea. I am sure if you cut the amount down on how much you put on, you will see its not greasy. I love this recipe and like the fact that I can use different EOs to find make different fragrances.

      I left out the essential oils because I would rather have my creams unscented. It melts very easily with body heat as it is applied, but feels a little greasy on the skin.

      The link you provided was a little expensive. I liked the way it felt, very nice.

      I've tried this and have used many creams. this doesn't just sit on the skin but gets absorbed. I love it.
