A DIY with Shea butter! #MajesticPure #bodybutter

02 September 8 Comments A+ a-

My skin gets dry very easily and I use quite a lot of moisturizers. But i always wanted to find some alternative because of the chemicals, unknown ingredients in them. I decided to try home-made body butter and thats how i came across the Majestic Pure Unrefined Organic Shea Butter.

I was surprised when i received this package, it was a lot of solid Shea butter. The batch i received was manufactured just a few days ago and how cool is that, to receive something that is so fresh, organic and all natural. This came with a very long shelf life (3years!) and i am sure no one can keep this wonderful product unused, for that long!!

My Experience:
  • The Shea butter was so soft, very smooth textured yet remained solid at room temperature.
  • I was able to cut it very easily, and store the rest for later. 
  • It was very pure without any impurities that can be spotted.
  • Had a mild fragrance and melts very fast on heating, than what i was expecting.

I was so excited and can't wait to make my chemical free, body butter at home. I used this to make my own chemical free home-made body butter.This gets absorbed so fast and i even applied a little on my skin the moment i opened the package. This has a subtle, pleasant smell.

Home-made Body Butter Recipe:

Ingredients: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Essential Oil (for fragrance)
Ratio : 3:2:1

Procedure: 
  • Melt the Shea butter and coconut oil together over medium-high heat. Just make sure you don't melt them completely, allow to cool and wait till it reaches room temperature.
  • Add required amount of almond oil (as per the ratio 3:2:1) and drops of essential oil, of your choice. I used lavender oil.
  • Refrigerate the mixture until it solidifies and gets the butter like texture.
  • Store it in a container, refrigeration after every-use is totally optional.
  • You are done with your home-made body butter!

I didn't know shea butter looked like that! I remember all my pregnancy creams having shea butter, I may try this DIY body butter for my next pregnancy :)

I like that you received a fresh block of shea butter. That would have been gone quickly. I'd make a body butter, a hair butter, and hair conditioner with all of that!

I love the recipe you shared! It looks like something I would use a lot and I love making my own products like that. Good to know that the Majestic brand of shea butter is so nice! I've had it on my Amazon wish list for a while.
