My skin has been in need of something with a little more “ump”, if that makes any sense. My unrefined shea butter is GREAT as is, but my skin was craving something a little extra.
With my kitchen khemist antennas raised, I was in the kitchen & ready to make something yummy.
Unrefined shea butter
Prime Pressed Cocoa Butter(w/its YUMMY chocolate scent)
Sweet Almond Oil
When mixing stuff for myself, I generally add until I’m satisfied, but I’m going to guesstimate what was used.
6 tablespoons of Sweet Almond Oil
2.5 oz of Tucuma Butter
About 6 oz of Cocoa Butter
About 8 oz of Shea Butter
In a double boiler, I first heated my sweet almond oil, adding the tucuma and cocoa butters next since they’re a bit more solid than the shea. I heated the items until combined completely before adding the shea. I turned off the heat and continued stirring until the shea had melted into the mix, removed from heat, and then allowed the mix to cool at room temperature.
Once the mixture started to solidify, I then mixed with a stainless steel hand mixer before adding to my container and covering.
The result is as pictured: A melt on skin contact, yummy-smelling whipped concoction that I keep finding myself sniffing. LOL!
