Shea Butter is all the rage and is a very old beauty elixir. After a long day of work and no flip flop weather here in sunny Florida it is in the 30’s !
My skin is so dry and I am in the mood to whip up a salve for my skin and lips. I took a large scoop of shea butter out of a tub that I have and placed it in a bowl. I then took a pestle and mortar and started to stir the shea. I squeezed in some honey from the bear bottle to add a sweet moisturizing delight to the mix. BOTH moisturize and honey is an antibacterial. After you have the amount you want I placed this mix into the microwave and cooked on low 60 seconds. (depending on your microwave may be warm it more)
Stir this creamy butter, sit down and drap the area where you will apply this with a small towel so you don’t stain sheets or carpeting. Rub in as it warms into your skin and enjoy the kisses of moisture on your skin. I love to use this on my elbows,knees and feet. I also love to put on white loose and cozy soft socks afterwards and go to sleep.
Wake up to softer skin… Guys and Gals~ Got a bit leftover on your finger? Apply some to your lips~
