INGREDIENTS

• 2 parts* Baraka Shea Butter

• 2 parts* Baraka Cocoa Butter

• Peppermint essential oil (as desired)

*We used the ‘parts’ sizing to make it easy for you to make however much you want. If you want to use 50 grams of shea butter then use the same amount of cocoa butter and ½ as much coconut oil. Don’t be afraid to adjust and experiment.

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt your shea and cocoa butter in a double boiler.

  2. Once the butters are melted and thoroughly mixed, strain and place in the refrigerator until cool and the top begins to harden slightly.

  3. Add peppermint essential oil.

  4. Blend with a mixer on high speed for 3 - 4 minutes or longer until you get the consistency you want!

  5. Once whipped, place your luscious body butter into an airtight container.


The cooler it is when you whip it the lighter and fluffier it will be.

The downside to that is that it takes a very good mixer to whip it when it gets very cool.

When it whips when it is not as cool the final texture will be much firmer, but the upside is that it takes less because the firmness just means that there is less air whipped into it.

Your whipped body butter is all finished! Perfect as a gift, or just for yourself! This formula is super nourishing and perfect for dry skin. We love to use it before bed to wake up to hydrated skin. Shea butter can be used in a variety of beneficial ways, and using our shea butter to moisturize and hydrate your skin is a self care benefit you don't want to miss.
