Using shea butter daily on your skin can improve the appearance of scars, hydrates, balance, and other skin problems. She butter has natural anti-inflammatory properties to help with insect bites, burns, cuts along with other skin problems.

Now start by adding all you carrier oils to you blender or mixing bowl. Now either cover your blender or-or add your mixer top to whip the mixture for about 30 seconds to one minute and stop the mix. Now add each one of your essential oils in you mix and start the blender or mixer again. You want to mix your butter for about 30 more seconds to 2 minutes depending on the consistency of the butter your prefer. I like my butter to be a bit on the thicker side and not too watery, so I only mix it enough to make sure all my products are a combination, and I stop my mixer. Mixing the product in a mixer of the blender is necessary if you do not want them to separate after you put them together. You product will look runny, and it will be for the most part unusable for the purpose of moisturizing your skin. Like all natural products, your body will need time to get used to this butter. I usually take about a good month or two to start seeing any significant changes. My skin was dull in some areas, after a week I could see the difference. After I shower I would usually have parched, ashy skin to apply lotion on. After starting to use my body butter, I notice that my skin looks more moisturize and no dry spots before I apply my body butter. The best way to get an excellent result from making your body butter is to use oils that target the problems that you have. This butter can work for all skin type so try it off making a mix of your very own for significant results.
