Yes, I know what I said
....when I swore up and down that I was thru with making body butters, and how relieved I felt about my decision to not sell them this winter. Well...
..you all KNOW how expensive mango butter is right?The stuff is crazy expensive. Well, stupid me placed an order for 10lb of Mango butter recently. It was such a painful thing to have to do considering that I only use it for soap making. I bit the bullet and purchased it along with more shea butter and some other oils. Don't you know that the day after the order was placed and paid for, I discovered an unopened 10lb box of mango butter in my ingredients closet!! At that moment I had an overwhelming urge to punch myself in the gut.
So - here we are. The only way I could shift all that butter was to go back to body butter making.
I must admit, this year it doesn't seem to be such a painful experience. Maybe because I've branched out on the flavors and also am now offering them in larger 4oz jars. I figure if I sell the larger sizes, people won't want them so often. You reckon it'll work like that?
