Whipped African Shea Butter Recipe

 Hello ! I'm back with a new post. It's been a good minute since I've been on here but I had a couple of people ask me how do I make my whipped shea butter. You can use your favorite kinds of oils and it's optional but you can use a scented oil as well. I used Avocado oil, Peppermint oil, Coconut oil, and Sweet Almond Oil. This whipped shea butter will be used for my skin.

Step One: Get An Old Bowl.

You want this bowl to be specifically for your mixing. So excuse my old bowl lol. I took about 3 spoon fulls of the Shea Butter. Make sure the Shea Butter is at room temperature prior to making this for easy mixing.

Step Two: Add Your Oils.
Add your choice of oils to the Shea Butter. I eyeballed my measurements but I would say use a tea spoon of each oil. If that doesn't look like enough oil to you then adjust it to your liking. I added two table spoons of coconut oil to this mixture. The coconut oil will add the fluffy-ness to the Shea Butter. Get your hand held mixer, or your heavy duty one and begin mixing your Shea Butter and oils together. Once you mix it for about 2 minutes add your scented oil of your choice. Mix for 5-10 minutes.

Step Three: Add Whipped Shea Butter To A Zip Lock Bag.

After mixing for 5-10 minutes, your mixture should look light and fluffy. Get a sandwich bag and put the mixture inside of a cup. I used my favorite tea/coffee cup. 

Step Four: Add Whipped Shea Butter To A Storage Container.

Once the mixture is in the bag you want to cut the corner of the bag and squeeze the Whipped Shea Butter into your container. I used a mason jar to store my Whipped Shea Butter. 

There you have it ! Whipped African Shea Butter. It has so many benefits. It is great for eczema, dry skin. it is great for your hair as well.
