It seems we’ve all been paying more attention to the ingredients more closely on the products we buy. Sometimes I find a product that meets my standards and sometimes I realize it’s easier just to make it myself. Making your own moisturizer is just as easy or easier than making your own chap balm. All you have to do is melt down the ingredients, stir and wah-la, moisturizer! Sounds easy enough right?
Recently, I decided to use products that don’t contain sulfates if at all possible. While I was shopping at Walmart recently, I discovered all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS®. It’s sulfate free! This is one of the first laundry products to have ingredients on the label so people like us know exactly what we are buying. I love transparency. It speaks volumes!
Offer is valid from May 1 – July 31 or while supplies last
NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® delivers a powerful clean without harshness. You can find it on the top shelf in the laundry aisle at your local Walmart. You can choose from fragrance free or fresh scent. I like fragrance free laundry detergent for my family. Learn more about the New all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS®.
DIY Whipped Shea Butter Moisturizer
- Double Boiler, this one can go over a pan, or I have this one.
- Measuring spoons and cups
- Empty Containers, such as glass jars (I love these)
- 1/2 lb. Shea Butter
- 1/2 lb. Coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp Sweet Almond Oil
- 2 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil *optional
- 10-15 drops of Lemon Essential oil, or other favorite essential oil for fragrance.
- Add water to your double broiler setup. Place it on low to medium low heat.
- Measure out all ingredients.
- Chop up the shea butter roughly. It will help it melt a little easier.
- Add everything except for the essential oil to the double broiler. Ingredients go in the top pan, and water in the bottom.
- Stir occasionally.
- Once everything is melted completely, remove from heat.
- Add essential oils.
- Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir.
- Place the top broiler into the freezer for 3-5 minutes.
- Remove and stir.
- Repeat this several times. It will start to harden and change color.
- Keep repeating this process, until you have creamy moisturizer consistency.
- Place in containers and use as needed.
