Steph’s Super Shea Organic Body Butter

20170813_130955

  • 10 oz Yellow or White Shea Butter (or 2/3rds of a 16 oz tub)
  • 1 tablespoon Vitamin E oil
  • 3 ½ tablespoon Glycerine
  • 3 tablespoons distilled or natural spring water
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 6 drops of your favourite essential oil

Pre-fluff Shea Butter in a mixer on medium with a flat paddle.

Melt coconut oil in a small bowl. Place small bowl in a shallow dish with hot water. Using a microwave will minimize the quality of the end product.

Strain melted coconut oil and mix into a small bowl. Add Vitamin E and stir gently.

Turn mixer on medium with pre-fluffed Shea Butter and pour coconut oil and Vitamin E mixture over top. Add Glycerine.

Pause your mixing at least once to scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure a good consistent mix.

Once well mixed, turn mixer on high to whip the butter. Add 3 table spoons of water. Speed must be high to “emulsify” the water into the oily mixture, or else it won’t combine and will just sit on top.
