DIY All-Natural Whipped Shea Butter
It was time to make more of my homemade shea butter mix. Whipped shea butter is my number one staple product in keeping my thick, coarse hair very moisturised and I also use it to keep my skin super soft and supple. I’ve been asked quite a few times on here about what that mix consists of, so I finally got around to it and share it! I also decided to try the ivory shea butter as opposed to the yellow variety this time. I have found that the ivory shea butter is a lot less greasier than the yellow, and it is much, much less grainier. This was also my best shea butter mix by far. The texture is smooth and creamy, with a thick consistency—like cake batter. I love it!
- 1/2 cup raw unrefined ivory shea butter
- 1/4 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp jojoba oil
- 1/2 tbsp of grapseed oil (optional)
- 1/2 tbsp castor oil (optional)
- 7 drops of rosemary essential oil
Tip: If you do not have an electric mixer, you can whip the shea butter manually with a spoon (like I did) or a hand mixer—but the key thing about this is that you must make sure that both the coconut oil and the shea butter are at room temperature (ie. shea butter feels soft, coconut oil is somewhat melted) to make stirring everything easier.
I hope that helps!
