Unrefined Shea Butter

$30.50

Unrefined shea butter is a premium quality all natural creme, designed to be used as a base for creating your own beautiful face and skin cremes.  It originate in Togo, where it is carefully hand made from hand-harvested karite nuts.

Working With Shea Butter

Shea butter has a thick texture.  It can be easily melted into liquid form, over  very low heat.  There is no reason to use high heat or cause the butter to boil.

It is helpful to dedicate a small inexpensive pan to the heating of this butter, as it  is difficult to clean up afterward.  I like to simply wipe it out thoroughly with paper towels before it cools and dries, making the clean-up very easy.

Customizing Your Butter

You can add essential oils to your shea butter, for a specific purpose.  

Shea butter can also be used with cremes such as rooibos creme.  You will need to warm it to a liquid state, then allow it to cool until it is soft but no longer liquid.

Then whip it with a kitchen whisk or egg beater, adding rooibos creme gradually and whipping it in.  You can also use this technique for adding botanical oils to make it a thin creme or lotion.  It is very versatile and can be used in many creative ways!

Our shea butter is hand made in Togo, sold under the Fair Trade Act, where women of the villages are able to make a fair wage for collecting the karite nuts and making them into this glorious unrefined shea butter.

Most shea butter on the market is taken to Europe and heavily refined, producing a whitish substance with no aroma.  Ours is a true unrefined product with real aroma, color, texture,  and healing properties.

I have relied upon shea butter as the best base for vaginal and rectal boluses.  It holds its solidity well when blended with herbs and essential oils, and melts at body temperature.

And it is so nourishing to tissues, that it can soothe any reaction to even the most harsh herbs or oils necessary for drawing out cancers and healing internal issues.  This makes it a wonderful base for drawing cremes and cancer salves.

It is also a great treatment for sunburn; and it  provides a slight degree of sun protection.  It is also very useful for healing water induced rashes and irritation, as it can remain water resistant for several hours at a time.

In Togo, karite nut butter is used as a skin softener, moisturizer, wound and burn treatment.  It makes an excellent base for any creme or lotion for these purposes.

Expected shelf life:  3 years or longer, when stored at room temperature out of light.

Ingredients:  Only 100% natural, wild crafted shea butter.
