Really Feeling the Benefits of My Homemade Whipped Shea Butter on My Feet Soles

I’ve been having lots of pain when walking – being in London at the moment means I have to walk quite a bit to get to places (distances are longer than, let’s say, back in Tenerife). This means my feet hurt…. a lot at times. I’m not complaining, physical pain has never really been a…

I Made Homemade Whipped Shea Butter for DIY Shea Butter Lip Balm, Scars, Stretch Marks… with ONLY Pure Shea Butter

Here’s my first EVER homemade skincare recipe. I saw many different recipes for whipped shea butter but in the end I decided to just whip the shea butter on its own (and not to add anything to it). Here are the results.

Difference Between Yellow Shea Butter and Ivory Shea Butter: I Had to Find Out Myself

At the market where I bought both yellow shea butter and ivory shea butter (see post here) nobody really seemed to be able to tell me what the difference was. These are people who use shea butter day in, day out! I realised there’s much confusion around the origins/differences between the two colours so had to find out myself. Here are my findings.

If you do a search for the difference between white or ivory shea butter and yellow shea butter you’ll get different answers on different websites.

It gets worse: if you ask people who regularly use the butter and even import it from Africa, they will also tell you different things.

Brixton Market is situated in South London, UK, and it has become Europe’s biggest Afro-Caribbean food market. So, as you can imagine, a delight for me to get lost in it in search of pure, raw, unrefined shea butter! I’ve lived in London in the past for many years so I know where the African and…

Shea Butter Benefits & Uses

There are so many uses when it comes to Karite butter (or shea butter) that I had to create a whole section of the website in order to dedicate it to this INCREDIBLE product.

There’s no doubt that the way in which the butter is made as well as the communities by women in Africa behind it have all contributed to making this product something I have fallen in love with.

When finding out all the different uses and benefits of shea butter I just couldn’t help thinking I had striken gold. Here’s a post dedicated to listing all the benefits. I know there are A LOT of sites and articles and blog posts and mentions, etc etc regarding all the different benefits but I just COULD NOT avoid the obvious.

Difference Between Raw, Unrefined, Refined, Ultra-Refined & Whipped Shea Butter: Which Should I Buy?

I’m fallling in love with products like shea butter. The older I get the more I seem to want to take good care of this shell that is the body. I am finding out about shea butter and loving everything about it. From where it comes from, to the fact that no two packs of shea butter will look and feel the same. Follow me in my shea butter discovery journey!

As I learn about this fascinating product I feel more inclined to know every single detail about it. I went to a herbal shop the other day and they had 3 kinds of shea butter. They all looked refined to me, although at the time and pre-research state of this post I wouldn’t know much about the difference.

Using Shea Butter on Your Face at Night: What’s the Best Butter?

This article introduces shea butter as a product and features a list of great quality shea butters available on Amazon (with affiliate links). I also have an article showcasing an experimental journey on using shea butter on face at night which you might find interesting.

Once you stop and think about how many hours your skin potentially spends coated in chemicals, simple natural solutions look even more tempting. Not least when it comes to overnight skincare, which by its very nature is designed to stay there, uninterrupted until your morning shower.

You can choose to use this all-natural solution on its own, prepare it a hundred different ways or use it as part of a ready-blended product. So have you considered using shea butter on your face at night?
