Shea butter (or cocoa butter)
Olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil
Essential oil(s) of choice
Glass measuring cup
8 oz jar with lid (be sure it's been thoroughly cleaned/ steamed for sterilization)
Fill pot about ½ way with water.
Add glass measuring cup into pot.
Set fire of stove to low.
Place pot on fire.
Measure out approximately 1 cup of Shea butter and 1 cup of olive oil. Place both into pot, creating a double boiler.
Allow the butter to melt.
When it's about ½ way complete, add essential oils of choice, approximately 30-50 drops total, depending on how fragrant you wish your butter to be.
Once the butter has completely melted, turn fire off, remove pot and pour into jar.
Allow jar to cool at room temperature.
For faster cooling, jar can be placed in the freezer or fridge. The freezer can harden the butter if left too long, so I suggest room temp cooling or fridge.
Remember to have fun, get creative with your selection of oils and label your jar so you know what's in it!!!
