  1. Hi, I want to try this recipe. How long will it last and where should it stored? If I use the blender method do I have to keep putting it back in the freezer or just let it blender for 15 minutes continuously? Thank you 😀

    1. I’m sorry I’m just now getting back to you. With all of the madness around Christmas time I was a little MIA!

      You don’t HAVE to put it in the freezer it just quickens the cooling time down. As it cools it will harden a bit.
      My friend Karen always blends hers and she said she will cool it in the freezer for a couple of minutes and then blend it in a blander. She does it basically the same way I do it just with a blender while I mix mine by hand. I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t be able to put it in a blender and not freeze it. It may take more than 15 minutes for it to cool down though.

      Store in a dark, room temperature place preferably. Everything I’ve read says it should last for up to two years. If it ever has a foul odor, looks bad, has mold, “If in doubt throw it out!”

      I hope this helps! Thank you for visiting and being patient for my reply!

  2. What is the difference between coconut oil and fractionated coconut oil in your recipe? I thought they were the same thing?

    1. Hey there,

      Fractionated coconut oil is not the same as regular coconut oil. I’m not a doctor or a scientist but this is how I understand it… Fractionated coconut oil is heated, and everything gets discarded except the short and medium chain fatty acids. The result is an always liquid coconut oil. It mostly used for hair, skin, beauty products.

      Okay, so what’s that mean exactly? Why use it in beauty products like this shea butter. Supposedly, it has better spreadability, and and doesn’t block pores.

      I hope this helps! You can use coconut oil too if you prefer.

  3. I put mine in the blender and whip it for about 15 minutes. It stays soft and light. Very easy to use. I love it.
