  • 1/2 cup shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut oil (extra-virgin)
  • 2 tablespoons organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • Optional: 20 drops essential oils (see note above for recommendations based on skin type)
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a large glass bowl with high sides. You won't be able to mix them together yet, as they'll be solid.
  2. Bring 2 cups of water to a simmer in a sauce pan. Once water is simmering, add the glass bowl above, being careful to ensure no water gets into the bowl. Allow the butter and oils to melt, stirring occasionally to combine.

  3. Once the mixture is melted and combined, carefully remove the glass bowl from the water and pour the mixture in a glass jar (I recommend these). Allow the mixture to cool.
  4. Once the mixture has cooled, place in the refrigerator until it solidifies completely. Remove and store at room temperature.
  5. To use, apply a pea-sized amount of moisturizer to clean skin.
