Organic Whipped Shea Butter and Almond Oil Recipe
This luxurious hand and body cream is amazing for the winter months. The entire recipe consists of only two ingredients and its really easy to make. It is particularly good for dry chapped hands, dry skin on your face and for any eczema or psoriasis you may have.
You will need:
A food processor
Storage Jar or Tin
Organic Cold Pressed Almond Oil (3-4tbsp)
Organic Shea Butter (1 1/2 cups)
I put about a cup and a half of shea butter into the food processor and blend on low power until smooth.
Keep the machine running and add the almond oil into the shea a tbsp at a time, this will fluff up into a thick cream. Add more almond oil if nessecary until you get the consistency you are after. Keep checking, it literally takes a few seconds of blending to fluff up.
Spoon the mixture into a piping bag and pipe into your suitable container. This will keep for a long time! I would say about 6 months to a year. Check it before use if its been a while.
The cream is brilliant when used overnight after a nice relaxing hot bath. I apply the cream to my hands throughout the day during the winter months to prevent cracking and dry skin. I also add my own essential oil blends but please do your own research when it comes to essential oil use. I add the oils after the initial shea blend and additional oils and butters can be added to the cream too.
It is important to use Organic Ingredients where affordable as they are so much kinder to your skin, the environment and the producers of such ingredients. Also look out for Fair trade options for your ingredients as this will ensure you are putting your money towards good causes, small farms, cooperative groups etc. and helps to support those who need it the most.
