Steph’s Super Shea Organic Body Butter


  • 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. I use my electric mixer on a medium setting to accomplish this.

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.


Add in your essential oils to add your custom luxury scent!


Best stored in a jar with a screw-top lid.
