-1/2 cup shea butter (4 oz)
-2 tablespoon of nourishing oil such as: jojoba, avocado, apricot, sweet almond oil, or grapeseed oil. This can even be coconut or olive oil. Almond oil is my recommendation since it feels the best on the skin for most people.
-10 drops lavender essential oil optional*
-5 drops rosemary essential oil optional*
-3 drops carrot seed essential oil optional*
-3 drops tea tree essential oil optional*

In a double boiler (a glass bowl over a pot filled 1/4 the way full with water), over medium-low heat, melt the shea butter. Add in the nourishing skin oil. Turn off the heat.
Pour into a bowl (I use my Kitchen-Aid bowl). Place in the fridge or freezer and allow to cool and return to a solid (not hard) form. This takes about 15-20 minutes, depending on location.
Once opaque and slightly firm, remove the bowl from the freezer. Add in the essential oils. Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, whip the mixture. You can also use a whisk or fork versus a mixer. This takes just a few seconds. Don’t over-whip. Scoop into a jar and store at room temp. Apply to both body and face as desired.
