Shea butter is best known for moisturizing skin and hair in many beauty products due to its naturally high levels of vitamins, especially vitamins A and E, and fatty acids, making it an amazing addition to your beauty routine.
In order to truly reap the benefits of shea butter, it is important to use a raw, unrefined, organic butter. At Essential Living, we are proud to work with our partners in Ghana to create a completely pure, unrefined organic shea butter you can trust.

Shea Butter can be used to make several variations of body lotions, overnight creams, and hair treatments.
Extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree, pure shea is full of many vitamins, most notably vitamins A and E, as well as fatty acids. In addition to being packed with vitamins, pure shea has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it safe on even the most sensitive skin. It’s incredibly high in saturated fats, even more so than most other oils often used in beauty routines, including grape seed oil and olive oil. In order to truly reap the benefits of shea butter, it is important to use a raw, unrefined, organic butter. You can be sure it is of highest quality which is evident thanks to its nutty aroma and yellow color.

Move to the refrigerator until partially hardened, 20-30 minutes. Beat with hand mixer, adding essential oil. It should turn into a soft, whipped butter consistency. Store in an airtight jar or container.
Shea Butter Hair and Body Conditioner
This can be used as you use your regular conditioner. When showering, shampoo and rinse as normal. Apply this to your scalp and hair. Let sit for 3-4 minutes, then rinse. Your hair will feel softer and shinier after the first use! At the end of your shower, apply conditioner to your entire body, let sit for a few minutes, then rinse. It leaves your skin incredibly soft and moisturized. No need for body lotion post-shower.
