I’ve found the secret to a great whipped consistency for my Shea butter. Maybe it wasn’t a secret, and I’m just late….but I found it!
I took Naptural85’s advice and whipped the Shea while it was soft at room temperature.
For my previous batches I would melt the Shea in the microwave and place it in the fridge to harden a little-then mix. This worked well….heck even plain raw Shea butter is da bomb! But this earlier consistency was more like a pomade.
This time….I got it. It feels light and airy, it melts nicely and has a soft feel.
I’m definitely going to whip my Shea in this manner from now on.
For this batch I mixed,
Raw Shea butter, organic virgin coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, vitamin E and Lavender essential oil.
I missed the pic showing the amount of olive oil….it was a cap full, about 2-3 tablespoons.
I added about 10 drops of Lavender essential oil, I could have added less…but I wanted the lavender fragrance to stand out a little.
I wanted to try Lavender this time for the scent but also because it’s said to prevent baldness and encourage hair growth.
Hopefully this will help w my postpartum shedding B-)
