So it all melted together. So I put my mixer bowl in the fridge for about 15 minutes then took it out and whipped it again. MUCH better this time though it took a few times of scraping the sides to be fully mixed and close to lump free. DS LOVES the stuff. I have stored it in the fridge and I have yet to get it out today. I will let you know if you should do that.
Thanks! I'm totally going to do this, it's so dry here and we've been going through a ton of moisturizer for the kids. What did you mix it in, a KitchenAid? Sorry for the 20 questions!
