Hi all!

Just a simple question for those of you who use arrowroot in your lotion bars/body butters:

How much do you prefer to use?

I've had a look around and seen usage rates all the way from 1/16th tsp to 2 tbsp per 100g!

I'll of course be having a play about myself - but what do you prefer?

Cheers!

Brambleberry.com suggest using 1 tsp. per pound of product. However, I notice the have used 2 TBSP of arrowroot powder in a recipe that makes 19 oz of body butter.

When I first started making them I used about 1 tsp ppo. However, I switched to IPM as I felt some graininess with arrowroot or baking soda. Wasn't fond of it personally.
