As salaamu alaikum & Hello ladies, Quick and brief update on the results at my first try at making whipped shea butter.  Well, I must say it did'nt quite turn out the way I hoped.  It wasn't creamy and as smooth as I wanted , you know similar to the texture of whip cream.  What did happen is that the texture did soften to a small degree.  Where as when applying, it wasn't as clumpy in texture.  I am thinking it could be do to the lack of materials that I 've noticed other ladies used when making their whipped shea.  I pretty much  used and followed directions as suggested.   BUT, I did not use an electric  hand mixer I used a blender.  So, ladies if any of you guys have any tips or recipes  on making whipped shea butter , or  know of a video of a you tuber making whipped  shea butter share them with us here at 'AuNaturale".  Until next time, take care.

I usually do one of the following methods:

1. If you are using a blender, it's important to melt the shea butter. Don't microwave, it makes the end result grainy in texture. Boil a pot of water then place the container of shea butter in the water, like a double boiler. Stir until completely melted, add oil(s) and then pour into blender. Blend until it thickens some, pour into your final container to cool and solidifies. The end result will be smooth.

2. You will need a hand mixer. Melt shea butter as above and add your oil. Get a bowl, fill it with ice cubes to make a ice water bath. Sit the melted container of shea butter in the ice water bath. Be careful! Mix the melted shea butter while it's sitting in the ice water. This method will give the shea butter that whipped, frothy texture -- my fav

I used to make body butter all of the time, but haven't in a bit. My combo is shea butter, small amount of cocoa butter, virgin coconut oil, olive oil and whatever other essential oils I feel like adding. I melt the oils, cool then before it becomes solid, but still soft with some liquid parts blend with a hand blender until it's the texture of whipped cream. Lovely maa shaa Allaah.
