  • 3/4 cup of Shea Butter
  • 2 teaspoons of Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Olive Oil
  • 3 teaspoons of Aloe Vera Gel
  • 3-5 drops of Vanilla Essential Oils


  1. Heat a pot of water to near boiling
  2. Place Shea Butter into a glass mason jar with a lid and secure the lid
  3. Submerge the mason jar of Shea Butter into the hot water for about 15 minutes(make sure the lid is on tight ensuring no water enters the jar)
  4. The Shea Butter does NOT have to be melted, just soft enough to mix with the other ingredients
While steps 1-4 are taking place:
  1. Place Coconut Oil into a double boiler and stir continuously until melted
  2. Once the Coconut Oil is in liquid form, mix it into the softened Shea Butter
  3. Add the Olive Oil into the above mixture by stirring it in
  4. Add the Aloe Vera and mix until all ingredients are completely combined
  5. Add the Vanilla Oils to the mixture
(Surprisingly enough, by adding the vanilla scent to the nutty scent of the Shea Butter, the combination gives off somewhat of a chocolate aroma!)
