I was running out of my #1 moisturizer. We use this for pretty much everything at home, hair, body, eczema treat (video is here), lip treatment… I even make some for my preggo friends, very good for stretch marks ! Shea butter is really the best natural ingredient i know.

I have a complete video review on the S.B i use, check it here

Here are the products & measures used : (TB= tablespoon, e.o= essential oil)

  • Shea butter (i buy here when i don’t have any from back home) :  about 250g
  • Castor oil : 1 TB
  • Soybean oil : 2 TB
  • Olive oil : 1 TB
  • Grapeseed oil : 3 TB
  • Coconut oil : 2 big TB
  • Vit e : 20 drops
  • Lavender e.o : 10 drops (for a light scent)

I place the shea butter to the double boiler to make it warm, but you can leave it outside for a soft consistency.

Then i let it cool off about 5 mns. And i start to add the oils (no particular order). I finish with the lavender e.o.

I will then start ti mix it with a handheld blender (use whatever you prefer)

I will blend until it reaches this consistency down here :

And here it is. I don’t put it in the fridge because it stays to normal temperature in my bathroom, but you can keep it in the fridge, it will be a little more solid.

I use my shea butter ALL YEAR AROUND, spring, fall, winter, there is no favorite, i just love it and grew up with it ! Now tell me what is your favorite moisturizer?
