Jojoba oil (optional)
Essential oils of choice (i.e. tea tree oil, lavender, etc.)
Mix equal parts of shea butter and coconut oil (you can add jojoba oil here too if you like) in a double boiler.
Allow mixture to melt, remove from heat, and add essential oil if using (we like tea tree and lavender).
Allow to cool completely (about half an hour). Oil mixture will begin to solidify. Once it is partially solidified:
Whip on medium speed for several minutes. Mixture will take on a nice, whipped, buttery texture.
Place in air tight containers.
