Homemade Whipped Shea Butter


This is how I make my homemade whipped shea butter! I always store my shea butter in a cool/dry place (hall closet or food pantry) to preserve freshness! Whipped Shea Butter Ingredients: 10 oz unrefined shea butter 4 oz extra virgin coconut oil 2 oz aloe vera gel 2 tbsp jojobo oil 2 tbsp vegetable glycerine 1 tsp argan oil

      I was wondering if the Aloe Vera Gel is necessary? I live in Guam and they don’t sell it on the island. Any Help is greatly appreciated!

      @Littleslady No it’s not necessary, just add extra oil inplace of avg to get a looser consistency.

      @MrsCBeautiful EBay or Edenallure,com….but it’s not necessary, I added it cause I had it on hand.

      Thank for the video! I tried it and loved it! Now for those of you who don’t have a ninja, don’t fret; I used a food processor ( the kind that you can place on top of your regular blender) and it came out great!!!

      Hi Nina! Love your videos. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. It’s been encouraging and educational. I made the whipped shea butter yesterday and would like to use it, however, I don’t like the smell. It’s very strong. How do you get past it?

      I am thinking about getting a hair steamer for deep conditionings. Can I use this homemade whipped shea butter as a deep conditioning treatment? If so, how much do I put in?? Regardless, I want to try this! Thanks for posting!

      @TheGoldenArts I read that it is supposed to be off-white or a light yellow. If its golden yellow then it probably has been refined. I guess refined shea butter doesn’t have as much beneficial “bang” as unrefined shea butter.

      Nina, do you still use this shea butter recipe as a daily moisturizer? I’m using Silken Child moisturizing creme and it works ok, but seems like I have to use so much of it. I want to try this one. Do you think the vegetable glycerin is necessary? If I don’t add it, do you think I will have to keep it refrigerated? Thanks in advance.

      @MrsCBeautiful Try iherb.com. Just got aloe juice from there. You can get most natural hair products (essential/carrier oils, leave-ins, shampoos, etc) on there. This time of the year they also have great discounts and they always have a flat shipping rate of $4. Depending on the weight of your order, you might as little as $2 for shipping. Here is a coupon for you ladies and gents to use for $5 off: ARU392 (this is for first time orders). Many people can use it.
      Thx Nina! Happy New Year 2011!!

      @angei161 Bright yellow “Shea” butter isn’t Shea butter at all, it’s kpangnan butter or African butter as some call it. Not even the same species of tree.

      You can get most natural hair products (essential/carrier oils, leave-ins, veggie glycerins, etc) on iherb.com. Just got aloe juice and castor oil. It’s a really good website.

      Hi Nina I am very greatful for your willingness to share knowledge and help others along the way. I live in Canada (freezing cold) and I was just wondering if the glycerin would be a problem because I know its a humectant. Thank yoU!!

      Thanks for the video, I made my own version last night with raw shea, raw cocoa, jojoba oil, lavender essential oil mix, vit e, tea tree oil, castor oil, and olive oil. After whipping the consistency was like pudding, but very greasy. And today its lost its whipped consistency and is hard. What can I do to combat this in the future? What does the aloe vera gel add to the mixture? I only used around 1 tablespoon of the oils and had 1lb of raw shea. Help would be appreciated!
