This homemade shea butter hand cream is amazing! It has the super-moisturizing power of pure raw shea butter. I also added coconut oil and infused it with ylang ylang and lavender essential oils. The scent is light and pleasant. I personally do not like heavily scented products – especially synthetic ones – instant headache from that over here. This is all-natural in every way and the perfect addition to your beauty regimen. I made this to go along with my Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub and it’s made my summer skin glow!
I am so happy to be experimenting with making my homemade beauty products. It’s something I always wanted to do, but I was a bit intimidated by it. I thought it would be too difficult – which it isn’t at all – and I thought it would be too expensive – which it also isn’t. I’m actually saving money! If you could see how big a smile I have on my face you would be smiling too! Once you start making your own homemade beauty products, I promise you will feel exactly the way I feel right now!
- 4 oz pure raw shea butter
- 1 tbsp fractionated coconut oil
- 1 tsp arrowroot powder
- 20 drops ylang ylang essential oil
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- Gently melt the shea butter over the stove using a double boiler. If you don't have one, just fill a saucepan with a couple inches of water, then fit an oven-safe bowl over the top.
- Remove from heat and stir the coconut oil into the shea butter.
- Place the mixture in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes, or until half-way solidified again.
- With a hand-mixer, beat the shea butter until light and fluffy. Mix in arrowroot powder and essential oils and blend until nice and creamy. Place in a 4 oz glass jar with lid. Use as often as needed.
Go ahead and pamper yourself with this one – you deserve it!
