Shea butter is solid in it’s natural state but melts when rubbed between the hands for easy application. If however, you find that your shea butter is a bit too hard, you can make a softer butter to keep at hand so application is a bit easier.

You can whip shea butter with other oils, such as olive oil and almond oil to the texture you prefer. You can melt the shea butter, add your oils and whip as it solidifies.

Some people prefer cold whipped shea butter which requires a bit more care to work with as you start – we recommend breaking it into quite small pieces to start with, perhaps use a fork to mash it up and finally whip it in a suitable bowl so it does not splash all over the nearby surfaces!

Use your shea butter all over your dry skin, it will sink right in and you won’t believe the relief – your skin will thank you!
