I don’t like the smell of cocoa butter, what would you recommend as a substitute? That I can also add fragrance oil to.
thanks in advance…
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
No worries! If you’re not a fan of the cocoa butter smell, you can substitute it with shea butter. Shea butter has a more neutral scent and is also fantastic for moisturizing the skin. Plus, it blends well with fragrance oils, so you can customize the scent to your liking!

I would like to see this recipe using a lego machine, do you just throw everything together in reservoir, what temp? how long?
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
Great question. To use the LEVO machine for this recipe, first, place the flower in the Power Pod and decarboxylate using the activate cycle at 240ºF for 30 minutes. Next, select the infuse cycle, add the butter and/or oil to the reservoir, and infuse the flower with coconut oil, almond oil, or cocoa butter for 5 hours at 170°F. For other herb and oil pairings, you can find the recommended durations and temperatures on our LĒVO Time & Temp Calculator.

What kind of flowers? Anything specific or just random flowers? I’m confused.
LEVO Oil Infusion, Inc. replied:
Great question! You may use any dried flower in this recipe! You do not need to use a specific kind. I hope that this helps!
