Making your own shea butter cream is super easy and can save you a ton of money if you just make them instead of purchasing. I have my ownÂ SheaÂ butter cream but it is not whipped or blended like most of the ones I see onÂ YouTube.Â My recipe is simply, unrefined shea butter, coconut oil and a little olive oil. All I did was melt the coconut oil andÂ SheaÂ butter…. mixed it together with the olive oil and allowed it to harden up.Â
Below are some of my fav videos forÂ SheaÂ butter mixes
Africa Imports has a great recipe forÂ SheaÂ butter lotion:
What you’ll need:
– 1 lb. or 80% ofÂ unrefined shea butter
– 3 oz. or 19%Â grape seed oil,Â virgin coconut oil,Â neem oil.Â shea nut oil, or a combination of these or other natural oils.
– 1 oz. or 1% ofÂ vitamin E oil
Put all your ingredients together except for the fragrance oil. Heat in a microwave or hot water bath until softened. (Make sure not to melt the ingredients, when heating in a microwave try 20 second intervals.) When soft mix with a blender starting low speed and then higher until whipped, as the shea butter is whipped it may turn a green color, and then when whipped completely will look light and creamy. Add the fragrance oil and mix by hand for a few minutes and then blend to completely mix in the fragrance.
Do you make your ownÂ SheaÂ butter mixes? I think I want to make another one, adding some vitamine E and other cool oils and whipping it up with a hand mixer.
