Top 10 DIY Projects with Shea Butter!

Shea butter is found in many beauty products - and for good reason! Shea butter is incredibly rich in vitamins E, A, and F. These vitamins directly help with skin conditions, such as blemishes, eczema, and dermatitis, skin allergies, insect bites, and sunburns. They give Shea butter its anti-inflammatory properties, and can even help heal wounds!

But Shea butter doesn’t just have healing properties--it has preventative ones as well. It offers UV protection, making it a good treatment for sunburns as well as a natural sunscreen! If used long term, Shea butter makes your skin smoother, softer, and stronger, even preventing wrinkles and future blemishes.

Shea butter is also comprised of natural oils that replenish and seal hydration into the skin. It’s one of the best natural moisturizers out there and lends a natural glow to your skin.

Not to mention, Shea trees are one of the world’s most sustainable natural resources, because they are not grown in plantations and don’t require fertilizer, irrigation, or pesticides. It takes the tree 25 years to start producing Shea nuts, which makes them less economically viable for larger large landowners or companies to invest in. Therefore, Shea trees are generally controlled by local people and not over-harvested.

We looked around the internet and found a lot of DIY Shea butter recipes! Most of these are links to recipes for homemade products. Give them a try, and let us know how it goes in the comments section.

              After years of using products that left her hair dry, damaged, and dull, Muhga Eltigani decided to chop off her hair and start over. For 6 months, she committed to using only natural ingredients on her hair- foods from her fridge and the grocery store with names she recognized, like avocados, olive oil, coconut, baking soda, and even eggs. She found support through an online community of women like her, sharing recipes and ingredients on Youtube.
