Our Shea Nilotica butter, sourced from East Africa, boasts a texture that is significantly softer and creamier than its West African counterpart.
Shea Nilotica is notably rich in vitamins A and E, making it an excellent choice for a moisturizing face cream or body butter.
Shea Nilotica can be utilized as follows:
- Moisturizer: Apply it directly to your skin as the butter effortlessly melts at body temperature.
- Anti-aging Body Butter: Melt a cup of shea butter in a pan and then cool it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Whip it with a hand mixer until it reaches a body butter consistency. If desired, add 10 drops each of lavender and frankincense oil.
- Hair Conditioner: In a double boiler, melt 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of shea butter. Allow the mixture to cool, then add 1 teaspoon of argan oil. Whip the mixture with a hand mixer until it becomes creamy. Apply this cream to your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes, then wash your hair with a natural shampoo.
- Eczema Soother: Melt half a cup of shea butter with two tablespoons of coconut oil in a double boiler. Let it cool in the fridge for 20 minutes. Add three teaspoons of rose water and 10 drops of lavender oil to the mixture, then whip until it forms a cream. Store the mixture in a jar in a cool place. Apply to sensitive areas of the skin once or twice a day to alleviate eczema.
