7oz Shea butter (Unrefined, straight from Africa)
4oz Aloe Vera Gelly (Clear, Fruit of the Earth brand from Target-I used this because it already has preservatives in it)
3oz Coconut Oil (this gives it a solid pomade texture)
2oz oil of your choice (I’m sure any oil will do but I used Banana flavored oil = Canola oil + banana flavoring)
OPTIONAL: Drops of your fave EOs if you don�t use a strong flavor oil
First, I melted the Shea butter in a glass bowl set in boiling water. While that was melting I softened the coconut oil in the mic (not all the way to liquid) then I mixed it in a glass bowl with the Aloe gel and Banana oil with a wire wisk. When the Shea was fully melted I poured it in the Aloe/oil mix and broke out the cake mixer. I beat it on medium speed for about two minutes. Then I poured it into an empty plastic container that has an air tight lid. It didn’t solidify overnight so I put it in the fridge for a coupla hours then set it out to get to room temp.
This stuff mixed perftectly into a soft pomadey type butter (it looks sorta like dark yellow butter) and it has a delicious banana scent! It seems like it should be greasy at first touch, but it’s actually very light, probably because I didn’t use much heavy oils-It literally melts right into my skin and hair.
