THANK YOU FOR THE REVIEW!! it took us about 5 to 6 hours to melt it a small amount at a time and then stir it in with a little oil to make it pourable while we melted the rest! it was nuts but it was awesome to add the thick, non melted on top and then step all over it and mix it with my feet and make an even thicker mixture. it was beautiful. thank you so much for the feedback!
