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.
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
vanessadiana1: Curious.....Why not gloves? Especially if your going to be selling
this?IDK> just wondering. :X
Kathy Cadile: Can you double or triple this recipe with no problem? I would love to make
this for gifts.
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.
sonick808: that looks good enough i want to put a spoon in and eat it!
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 (:
yuvee: I'd love to try making this, but I live in the tropics and coconut oil is
liquid at room temp. Will the lotion melt?
icic5: This vid was soo inspiring I really want to try and make this, I normally
just use a pinch of shea and a pinch of coconut oil and moisturize after
the bath but I really want to make this now !!! It looked soo easy and the
end result was beautiful!
Renee Harris: It depends on the purpose you're looking for - for relieving dry skin, it
totally works for that, even when heated.
Lisa Benedict: Hi Renee. haven't made any yet. But have all the ingrediants and tools. Now
lets see if I can find sometime this weekend. I will give it a whirl. I am
excited to try this. I have several scents to work with and enough product
to work with as well. Thanks so much
Janette Tobin: If I continued to mix it longer would it become more fluffy? I didn't know
if I could mix it too long and ruin the buttery texture.
lexiwillow1: Hi! I'm going to try this today to see if it may help my BFF Ecxema ...
Will let u know if a miracle has occurred ! Great quality video, Thank
you!... I want to start her recovery sweet and simple ;)
seabiscuit96: Have you ever had issues with using the same mixer you mix food in to make
lotions? Does it come off completely?
greenizDAnublaque: I love the way Shea butter feels on my skin but I hate the smell. I noticed
that you put some drops of fragrant oil in it, so does the get rid of the
Shea butter smell completely?
rhondalub: Thanks for sharing Renee. Classic Sugar Boutique uses a lot of shea butter.
Being able to make our own will save us a lot of money. You can Google us.
What do you all think of our shop?
tati: thanks so much for sharing this. I'm a natural cosmetics freak, so your
videos come in handy ;) I have a couple of questions.. How is how the
temperature affecting the quality and vitamins inside the oil and shea
butter? we all know that cold-pressed unrefined oils are better so isn't
this method of preparation gonna take away some of the good stuff? for how
long do you melt the butter and oil? also, if I use any other oil instead
of almond, is it gonna mix this well and creamy too? thanks:)
Dakota Allen: Great idea!
nicci godoy: i wanna eat it! lol thanks for this tutorial!
Renee Harris: You can buy coconut oil almost anywhere - even from Wal-mart. Look for one
that melts at 76 degrees (which is the most common).
Renee Harris: Excellent! Did you make some yet?
Lisa Benedict: found a used stand mixer on ebay. got the ingrediants. ready to try your
conquestlife1: No. A blender will not whip. However, you can use a hand mixer. I have made
whipped shea butter using a hand mixer.
Sandy: really nice!! very inspiring!! love the white kichenAide :)
Renee Harris: Love that idea. If you happen to have pics, email those to me and I'll post
them. Thanks for the tip!
Renee Harris: @missdarque How neat! Perfect for Valentine's Day :)
Renee Harris: I recommend Mt Rose Herbs or From Nature With Love.
RickyboyH: I'd add a couple of drops of vitamin E oil. It acts as a preservative (so
the Shea butter doesn't go rancid)
nickandsal001: Does this melt?
JoJo N: Hi! I'm not too sure if it's related to my post but I'm going to
sticky-beak it! :D It took between 30mins to 1hr to cool into paste-like
texture, the temperature was roughly 17C/62F in the uninsulated house. It's
a pain to whip when it's still in liquid state but once it cools into
paste-like texture, it whips up like a dream! And yes, I used my Kitchenaid
to whip it! I LOVE KITCHENAID!! :D I changed the ingredients a bit tho.
seabiscuit96: Thanks for the recipe and thanks so much for your response! I actually just
bought your ebooks the other day! I'm excited!
markbaileytube: Where can you buy the Shea Butter or Coconut Oil for a good price? My wife
is wanting to try this for our family :) thanks ~Mark
Renee Harris: It could melt if the finished product is left in a very hot place.
Renee Harris: It depends - an unrefined shea butter does have a strong scent, so you may
want to use refined. Also, a fragrance oil will mask some of the smell, but
an essential oil (which is what I use) will do a better job at it, and even
though it's more expensive, a tiny bit goes a long way.
justwiddles: "you want a frost to cake with this" hahahah! :)
Aminata Jalloh: Tip: put whipped Shea butter into a Ziploc bag, cut the tip of the bag and
pipe into container like a frosting bag. This makes for a cleaner
Renee Harris: That's great! I know what molds you're talking about - those would be
perfect! They'd make great lotion bar gifts at Easter, too. Thanks for
letting me know!
Renee Harris: Thank you!
Renee Harris: @naomicolquhoun You might have a slight coconut oil smell if you use a
really good coconut oil, but it's more likely that you won't have a scent
unless you add essential oil(s).
JoJo N: Actually, I didn't change but added a few more ingredients on top of Shea
Butter and Coconut Oil (less amount) concoction. I added Sweet Almond Oil,
Virgin Jojoba (expensive!), Meadowfoam Seed Oil (even more expensive!) and
Vit E oil. :D The texture is like a stiffer whipped cream (no grainy-ness
or lumpaloos at all) and it smells oh so yummy delicious like butter!
Naughty me added the Oatmeal, Milk & Honey Fragrance oil to my quarter of
whipped butter instead of Essential oil(s).
Renee Harris: I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs or FromNatureWithLove
Organic niki: Will this stay in a whipped form, or eventually harden? Bc mines hardened
souljaaagiirl: Great tips THANKS!
nebbscorner: thank you for using real shea butter, because there has been
phony-high-yellow shea butter that is actually African butter. Great whip
naomicolquhoun: does the coconut oil add the scent or did you add additional drops of
Renee Harris: Excellent! Thanks for letting me know :) How long did your cool-down take?
Renee Harris: @iashley1985 It stays a nice softness - not as soft as whipped cream, but
somewhere between whipped cream and frosting.
Renee Harris: @SlightlyCrunchyMama I haven't had it turn buttery-like, and I've mixed it
a LONG time.
Teresa Sproles: Can I use a hand mixer? I don't have one of those fancy mixers. lol Thanks
