Homemade Shea Butter Hand Cream
Recipe type: Homemade Beauty
Serves: 4 ounces
This luxurious hand cream combines the healing powers of pure raw shea butter and coconut oil. It is infused with ylang ylang and lavender essential oils to sooth, relax and uplift your spirit.
  • 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
  1. 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.
  2. Remove from heat and stir the coconut oil into the shea butter.
  3. Place the mixture in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes, or until half-way solidified again.
  4. 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.
