Beach Life: check out http://www.edensgarden.com/ I just discovered them and they have tons of great essential oils. I love making this with grapefruit oil
fashionputtana: Brilliant! Can wait to make it. =)
doris hamilton: what type of scale do you recommend that I purchase for weighing????
Evelyn Scicluna: Hi where can I buy the shea butter to make this? thanks.
Juanita Miglio: Can you provide info on your scale? I am looking for a better one that is more exact
Noah Medeiros: That looks like frosting
RunnerGunner: I got some organic shea butter coming. I normally buy my own lotion already made, but can't find anymore organic shea butter lotion. My question is do I need coconut oil or can I just melt 1lb. Of Shea butter and wisp it then jar it? I never made anything like this. What's the self life and do I need to put in the fridge?
Nazia Mahmood: I made this last year watching your video and needed to do some more and came back to remind myself what I did. Will be making some over next few days. Great stuff!!!!
wildcharm911: Is it necessary to keep shea butter cream or lotion in the fridge? it would be cold to put on the cream in winter time!
Elisabeth M: What is the shelf life on this?
VICTOYA: i never heat/melt my whipped shea. and it NEVER comes out grainy or chunky. if its too greasy its b/c you put too much oil in it..including coconut oil. you cant forget that organic shea butter is already enriched w/omega fatty acids, vit E & A. it melts to its own oil, so adding to much of other oils makes it greasy. The good news is, b/c it has a QUICK absorption, it does not stay on top of the skin like lotions do. Jah Bless
lmturmenne: Seems just a bit too thick for my taste. What would you do to loosen it up a little? Add oil? Could you maybe add an herbal-infused oil? I think I might like that.
Teasha S: I don't know if you've tried this, but I like to add in a little bit of a liquid oil into the mix, because it becomes more of a whip that way, easier to blend too imo...like a bit of olive, jojoba, or avocado oil.
sonick808: that looks good enough i want to put a spoon in and eat it!
stridergal: If you are worried about it being too greasy, use a bit of cornstarch. It won't take away the benefits of the lotion. But it will help in not making you feel like a greased monkey.
Kathy Cadile: Can you double or triple this recipe with no problem? I would love to make this for gifts.
infinitalocura: hi renee! i just make the cream, and it comes very greasy ): ,, what happen?? what i did wrong?? can i fix it?, thank you from italy (:
