You can get it for a great price from: Empower Village
Supplier of wholesale 100% Shea Butter. For those of you using it for body cream or to make hair gel out of it! :) It's really great stuff!
Owen and I made some hair gel today (based on the alarming info I read about in a book I will go into later, Slow Death by Rubber Ducky), containing shea, aloe, and a little olive oil. It worked for Owen, I haven't tried it yet. Here's the recipe:
Shea Hair Gel:
4 oz shea (100%, if possible)
2 oz aloe (I squeezed it out of our plants, actually)
2 T olive oil or coconut oil
You heat up the shea on the stove in a double boiler. Then add the other ingredients. It is liquid at first but cools to a really cool semi-soft texture. And you could use it for body lotion if you wanted, too.
