    Anonymous, you can get cocoa butter from iHerb

    The postage is cheap, only $4 and with a code VIH356 you can get a $5 off of your first order

    Thanks for the answer Sheena! I know where to fine raw shea butter but where do you find raw cocoa butter ? I dont think Ive ever seen that : – /

    Whenever I want something to have a long shelf life I add natural preservatives like rosemary oil and such. I do not refrigerate this product. It also depends on what you are putting inside the product. Some products would never need to be preserved because of its components anyway.

    Do you have to refrigirate something that is homemade or will it have a long shelf life ?

    yum! i can smell it from here.
    I'd skip the funnel though. seems like a waste of product… unless you don't care about that.

    Great video! I love making shea butter mixes like this. I've never tried using a plastic bag to funnel the ingredients into the container but I may try that. I noticed how creamy this mix looks when complete..hmmm hmmm good 🙂 lol.

    The coconut oil liquefied on its own. When I bought it, it was solid but after being in the cabinet for a day, it was all liquid. Made my job easier. I don't microwave any of my ingredients for health reasons.

    Hmmm. Coconut oil is generally not liquid at room temperature unless it is quite warm in the room. Was it microwaved ahead of time or was it processed?

    Wonderful video and awesome recipe! I recently whipped up a butter using Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Grapesed Oil, Sweet almond Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint Oil, Lavender Oil and Lemon Oil..put it in my magic bullet and voila! It smells wonderful and feels amazing! Thanks for sharing

    Great recipe. I make something similar, but I'll mix it up a bit next time I make a batch of hair butter and try making this recipe.
