Ingredients needed and instructions

  • 2 c Shea Butter, unrefined
  • 1 c pure Aloe Vera Gel
  • 1/2 c Coconut oil

Please note the following:

  • To soften the shea butter put in the microwave for 30-50 seconds.
  • Unrefined shea butter will not have a smell to it.

  • Tea tree oil and vitamin E oil act as natural preservatives.
  • Make sure not to get any water in the mixture as it will cause mold.
