25% LIPIDTHIX AND RICE BRAN OIL = RICE BRAN BUTTER
75% rice bran oil
Measure out each ingredient into a heatproof container, like a Pyrex jug, and put into a double boiler. Heat at 60˚C to 70˚C for up to 20 minutes, then remove from the heat and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes (depending upon how much you're making!).
I used white chocolate fragrance oil from Voyageur Soap & Candle in this one, which I know will lead to my husband bemoaning the fact that everything in our house looks and smells good, but tastes like a mouthful of Crisco!
This isn't to say that every oil will respond well at 25% Lipidthix. Some might be better at 20%, some at 25%, and there might be others that need more or less. Get into your workshop and do some playing with this product! I'm planning on playing with some drier oils, like macadamia nut oil or hazelnut oil, and a few heavier oils, like olive oil or avocado oil.
I do have an avocado butter, but it smells very earthy, which bothers me! I have tried to add fragrance to it, but it's just overwhelming.
As a final thought, I cannot stress enough how important I think it is to put your container into the freezer to cool. Every time I've left it at room temperature, I get grains. Every time I've put it into the freezer, I get no grains.
This isn't to say that you won't succeed if you leave it out on the counter to cool - I won't negate your experience with this ingredient - but my most successful batches have been those I've put in the freezer!
