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’s 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 you use a glass mixing bowl for easier cleanup.
I use my Shealoe from head to toe, literally.
1/2 cup of unrefined white or yellow shea butter (You can find raw unrefined shea butter here)
1/4 cup of aloe vera gel (You can find aloe vera gel here)
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 a 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.
