There are unlimited possible combinations that you can use to make your own shea butter lotion. These are some general instruction ideas; but you can change this around to create your own special blends.
What you'll need:
- 1 lb. or 80% of unrefined shea butter
- 3 oz. or 19% grape seed oil, virgin coconut oil, neem oil. shea nut oil, or a combination of these or other natural oils.
- 1 oz. or 1% of vitamin E oil
- Fragrance oil
Put all your ingredients together except for the fragrance oil. Heat in a microwave or hot water bath until softened. (Make sure not to melt the ingredients, when heating in a microwave try 20 second intervals.) When soft mix with a blender starting low speed and then higher until whipped, as the shea butter is whipped it may turn a green color, and then when whipped completely will look light and creamy. Add the fragrance oil and mix by hand for a few minutes and then blend to completely mix in the fragrance.
