You will need:

½ cup shea butter

¼ cup coconut oil

½ tbsp. jojoba oil

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp vanilla extract


Directions:

Scoop shea butter into a microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments at 50 percent power, stirring each time. Until it mostly liquefies. Remove bowl with an oven mitt.

Stir in coconut oil until mixture is clear, not cloudy. Add the jojoba oil and stir.


To turn the mixture into cream, cover bowl with plastic wrap and let cool in refrigerator until the texture resembles softened butter (this step should take no longer than an hour). If mixture fully hardens, remove from refrigerator and let it warm on the counter.


Add cinnamon and vanilla, then whip with a hand mixer on low speed for 3-5 minutes or until the color brightens and peaks form.

When desired consistency is reached, scoop into a lidded glass jar with a spoon.
