DIY Coconut Shea Butter Recipe

Coconut Shea Butter

I was Hair Over Heels when my shea butter order came in the mail this week. I ran out of it about a month ago, so within minutes of opening the box -- I lost my mind!

I whipped up a conditioner, lip butter, and this super easy  coconut shea butter.

You'll only need 2 ingredients (3 if you want to add your favorite essential oil). I love the smell of both of these together but some may not.

If your butter is soft, you can mix your ingredients with a spoon. If working with a more solid butter, boil some water first and set it to the side.

Place your ingredients in a heat safe container and place the container in the hot water.

Your butter and oil should slowly melt within minutes.

Apply lavishly to your skin!
