DIRECTIONS

  1. Weigh out the butters and oils and put in a double boiler to melt.

  2. When melted strain into a cooling dish that you can use to whip the mixture in after it solidifies.

  3. Leave it to cool (you can put it in the fridge if you want, but stir frequently or it will be too hard on the outside and still liquid in the centre.

  4. If using cocoa, moringa or other powders or essential oils add them in as you start to mix.

  5. Whip until it is a light, fluffy consistency (more whipping will give you a softer product (more air whipped in) that will need more containers to hold it all.

  6. Put it into containers. I like to put it into a plastic bag, remove the air and cut a corner off the bottom of the bag and squeeze it into containers, but some like to simply spoon it in.

  7. Put covers on containers, label and use (or give away, or sell)L

CAUTIONS WHEN USING RED PALM OIL

While Red Palm Oil has many amazing properties that will make your hair and skin happy, it may make you sad if you don’t take care of the colour. It can stain sheets and clothes (fortunately it absorbs quickly and the very things that give it the colour (carotenoids) are powerful protection against UV Rays). If you have light hair you should test it in a small area and avoid leaving it on your hair for an extended period.
