Shea cocoa-nutty butter!

I'm mixing away again, now that I have a moment. I have some very patient people waiting for me to make this body butter. Well, at long last I've made it. It was great fun too. It's got shea butter,cocoa butter,coconut oil almond oil amongst other good stuff.
And you can see the finished product at the top, smooth silky and moisturising.
Tomorrow I will be having a go decorating part of my daughter's wedding cake.

Sounds great sis.Man I wish I lived there. A 'friend' from the UK sent me a message in November saying she's coming to Africa-Johannesburg- en route to Zimbabwe and asked if there was anything I wanted. I ordered some cocoa and shea butter, 2 bars of African black soap and the very next day they'd arrived at her house. She landed in SA on Dec 3.I sent her a message to arrange to either get the stuff to my brother in law who could post it to me,or for my husband to collect the package when he went up there. I haven't heard from her since.She said she wants to 'settle down' first but now she's gone to Zim and I somehow don't think I'll be getting that package.And to think that I almost placed an order with you but realised it would have been too late-realised you'd probably have been able to mix something up but that was already in December. It would have been even sadder if she did this with your package cos I know yours would have been made with love. Long story short-I am glad that your friends and relatives have your expertise and love.Keep up the good work.

What a shame! I hope she will post it to you or something. I shall bear you in mind in my next batch. Do you still have my email? Send me your address(I think I deleted it ages ago). Don't you dare object lol, cos this is one of the ways I sow seed to honour HIM. And he's ever so faithful, multiplying it back to me abundantly.

That is cool. I just bought some shea butter from the store. The color is a bright yellow though.
Happy Holidays! Happy New Year!
Take Care~

Yes. There's pale yellow/whitish shea butter and deep yellow shea butter. If it's completely white, it's been deodorised and lost some of it's nutrients.

I get allergry very easily, so this is ok for my skin?

This contains only natural ingredients-the chance of allergic reaction is small. However I cant really say. Everyone one's different, and it's possible you could be allergic to any one of the ingredients even though they're natural. I have a friend who is allergic to shea butter and cant use anything containing it.
