HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN
SHEA BUTTER FACE CREAM
This cream is a deep conditioner. It’s infused with naturally antibacterial and skin-supporting properties.
This recipe is great for dry skin and an amazing remedy for those flaky patches during the cold and dry seasons.
Personally, I like to apply this cream at night. I wake up with soft and supple skin ready for the day.
All right... let’s get to it!
Ingredients & Materials
4 oz. Glass Mason Jar
4 oz. of Shea Butter
Shea butter is a Deep Moisturizer and can reduce inflammation.
0.5 oz. of Rosehip Seed Oil
Rosehip seed oil is a natural moisturizer. It helps exfoliate, brighten skin tone, boost collagen formation, and reduce dark circles. It also helps protect against sun damage and reduce scars and fine lines. Finally, it helps reduce inflammation and support against skin ailments such as eczema and psoriasis.
0.5 oz. of Jojoba Oil
Jojoba is easily absorbed by the skin. It’s rich in Vitamin E; which helps eliminate free radicals. It promotes a glowing complexion, supports against acne, and soothes and moisturizes dry, chapped, and irritated skin.
Essential oil I like to use is:
Ylang ylang essential oil
Geranium essential oil
Tea Tree essential oil
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil
Ylang-ylang supports the reduction of inflammation, stress, and anxiety. It also promotes healthy blood circulation.
Geranium Essential Oil
Geranium supports hormones balances, cell growth, blood circulation, and against inflammation and wrinkles. It can help relieves stress and the effects of menopause. It is antibacterial and a natural deodorant

Tea tree is antibacterial, antifungal, and supports the skin against inflammation.
First, place shea butter in a double boiler.
As the water heats, the ingredients will start to melt. Stir occasionally.
When the butter is completely melted, let cool, then add 0.5 oz. of rosehip seed and jojoba oil. to mixture.
Then add 10 drops of ylang-ylang, 10 drops of Geranium, and 5 drops of tea tree essential oils.
