Melting Shea Butter at Home

  • A thermometer to read temperatures between 60° to 170° degrees Fahrenheit
  • A mixing bowl with a cover or a large Zip Lock Bag
  • A hot water bath
  • One wooden spoon


Begin making a hot water bath.  
Check the temperature of the water with the thermometer. For best results, temperature should be between 140° and 160° Fahrenheit.

STEP 2  

Place the mixing bowl (or large Zip Lock bag) containing shea butter on the hot water bath and cover with a lead. Be careful not to spill water into the butter. You will notice after a few minutes that your butter begins to melt.


Continue to monitor the temperature of the bath water until the Shea Butter is completely melted.


Once the butter is completely melted, remove the Butter from the hot water bath and put in a cool place. If you wish to add some essential oil or fragrance, this is the stage to do so. Keep monitoring the melted butter; once the butter begins to solidify, use the wooden spoon to whip the butter. Do a second whipping 15 minutes after the first whipping to your desired smoothness.


Place Butter into your desired packaging material and allow to solidify. Your 100% natural vitamin A cream is now ready for use.
