This soft shea nilotica butter from East Africa is much softer and creamier than the West African shea.
Shea nilotica is very rich in vitamins A & E and can be used as a moisturizing face cream or body butter.
You can use Shea Niloctica:
- If moisturizer: You can apply it directly on the skin because the butter melts at body temperature.
- As anti-aging body butter: Melt a cup of shea butter in a pan, and let it cool for 20 minutes in a refrigerator. Beat it with a hand mixer to a body butter, and add 10 drops of lavender and frankincense oil if necessary.
- If hair conditioner. Melt 2 tablespoons coconut oil with 1 tablespoon shea butter in a double boiler. Let the mixture cool, then add 1 teaspoon of argan oil. Beat the mixture with a hand mixer until you get a creamy cream. Apply the cream to the hair and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then wash your hair with a natural shampoo.
- To soothe eczema. 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, and beat the mixture until it forms a cream. Store the mixture in a jar and in a cool place. Apply to sensitive areas of the skin once or twice a day to soothe eczema.
