Shea butter is ubiquitous when it comes to skin and hair products. And with good reason as it is packed with some incredible vitamins and nutrients. Paired with coconut oil, shea butter makes a moisturizing butter perfect for the dry harsh cold months. Here is an easy, inexpensive DIY recipe that will leave your skin smooth, soft and radiant this winter. To make the mixture into a hair butter, simply increase the amount of shea butter and cut the coconut oil by half. Enjoy!
You will need:
4oz of shea butter
2 Tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil
1 Tablespoon of vitamin E oil
3-5 drops of your favorite essential oils for scent (Peppermint and Lemongrass are used in the recipe)
