As promised my basic recipe for Shealoe or Whipped Shea Butter with Aloe Vera Gel. I know there are many recipes available online but this is probably the most simple with only three ingredients. Shea Butter alone is a great all natural moisturizer. Combined with aloe vera gel it is softer and easier to work with. It can serve as a creamy moisturizer and/or styling product. Feel free to improvise and add your favorite essential oils. I suggest that your use a glass mixing bowl for easier clean up. I use my Shealoe from head to toe, literally.
1/2 cup of unrefined white or yellow shea butter
1/4 cup of aloe vera gel
2 tablespoons of coconut oil or the oil of your preference.
Begin by scooping room temperature shea butter in a bowl. Whip with a hand or stand mixer on low speed (speed may vary depending on your mixer. I have a high powered Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer, medium to low speed gives nice fluffy, whipped consistency) until fluffy in consistency. Once it’s soft add the aloe vera gel and coconut oil. Mix again with mixer on low speed. Spoon into a container with a lid. Store in a cool dry place.
Shealoe can be used as a hair moisturizer/styling product and an after shower body cream. Apply Shealoe to wet or dry clean hair or skin. For hair after application style as desired.
