- 1 cup Shea oil
- 1 cup avocado oil
- 3 tsp. corn starch
- 10-15 drops lavender essential oil
Begin by placing the Shea butter in a glass bowl and then placing the glass bowl in an already simmering pot of water. Allow the Shea butter to melt slowly in the glass bowl, stirring occasionally. Note: you can also utilize a double boiler for this step.
After the Shea butter has melted, remove the glass bowl from heat and stir in the essential oils, the avocado oil, and the cornstarch. Mix well. Immediately afterwards, place the glass bowl in a prepared, larger bowl of ice water. While the glass bowl remains in the ice water, utilize your hand mixer to whip the mixture. As the mixture begins to cool, stiff peaks will begin to form. When the mixture looks like whipped cream, removed the glass bowl from the ice. Place the mixture carefully into sterilized containers or jars. Enjoy!
