Shea Butter is a vegetable butter known for its moisturizing qualities and facial skin care. Shea is used pure or mixed with vegetable oils to make it more creamy. In this case, the shea butter should be melted over low heat and a few vegetable oils added. Pure, it can be applied in small amounts to the lips to moisturize and repair. It can also be rubbed on dry tips in case of dry or brittling hair. To flavour it, use it with essential oils. These blend very well with butter and perfume it delicately. Put a few drops per tablespoon of butter without difficulty.
