Homemade Moisturizing Cream on the Cheap

Homemade Moisturizing Cream

200mL shea butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon organic coconut oil, softened not melted
1 teaspoon organic extra virgin olive oil (evoo)

With a hand held blender, beat shea butter until creamy, about 30 seconds.

Add in softened coconut oil and evoo and beat again until incorporated.

Scoop into a jar and voila.

Spread a dab or two on your hands. Use it as a hair treatment, apply a small amount to damp hair, keep it there for 10 - 15 minutes (or overnight) and rinse.

Other ways to use the moisturizer:

as a diaper cream
as a natural sunscreen
to add an extra glow to your cheeks

Add in a little vitamin E to the cream for even more skin therapy.

The possibilities are endless! Shea butter has become my new obsession. Wouldn't a little jar of this cream be a fabulous gift idea for a friend? All natural and organic products for under $15!
