  2. Hi! I have almond oil. I want to make a shea butter lotion to use as a “liquid” shower soap. I am now reading that there is a difference between my expeller pressed almond oil and expeller pressed “sweet” almond oil. What is the difference? I can get the “sweet” but what to use the non-sweet for now that I have it? I read on your site it is better to not cook my mixture. What recipe would you suggest to make a small 4-6 oz bottle of my own liquid shower soap? I have the pure uncut shea butter, the almond oil as listed above, also some bees wax (I was going to melt and use the bees wax), and I would choose a lavender oil (essence?). Anything else? How to make a lotion-type solution? Thanks
