In a double boiler (I use a small saucepan within a larger saucepan), on medium heat, melt the shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil.
Wait until they become into a liquid form. About 5 minutes.
Pour the contents into your mixer bowl, set aside, and let it partially solidify. This takes about thirty minutes. If you are impatient like me, stick the bowl in the fridge for five to ten minutes and you will be good to go!
Add the ground cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Now it's time to whip. Whip on high for five to seven minutes. This may seem long, but this is what makes the whipped body butter get a light and fluffy texture.
Fill into your jars or containers and whaalaaa!
I like to measure my ingredients in ounces when they are in solid form because you can get a more accurate amount that way.
You don't have to add cocoa butter, but I like that little hint of chocolate smell for this recipe.
If your whole mixture accidentally ends up being hard before whipping, just repeat the melting process.
