  23. Is there any way to verify the claims of these shear butter dealers? I make and distribute hand and body lotion.

    • I GODWIN i sales shea butter here in nigeria, if u dnt mind we can met so that you will verify d sample

    • Try contacting someone and ask for a sample. When paying insist on doing it via a bank and arrange for them to only release funds once you have received goods. That way seller knows you are genuine too since you sign for consignment before you are given access to it but you are confident only after verifying quantity and quality is adequate does money get trasffered to seller. Seller is also confident since their bank holds the money (assuming seller fulfilled order). Hope that helps. Please email ebrahk@gmail.com with quantity required and frequency with which you would require it or any other questions, Thank you.

  26. Hi, I am thinking in a combined recipie including everything; I mean Shea butter + Castor Oil + Jojoba Oil + Pura d’or + Lavender Essential Oil + Avocado Oil+ Vitamin E Oil + Olive Oil. Is there any problem or interactions? and what will be the measurments

    • I don’t think there will be any problem. Try to keep fixed proportion of total butter part (4/5) and total base oil part (1/5). Don’t put more than 2,5% of essential oil – in your case Lavender Oil.

  33. You cannot predetermine the color of your shea butter using the nuts. You can only be sure you will get either ivory/beige or cream yellow after production stage is completed. Nuts are heavy expect freight to be costly as well. The yield from 2okg of shea nuts normally is 5kg.

    • Hi I’m very pleased to say I saw Mr Dejis advert on this Blogg and sure enough I ordered some,I’m more than the happiest customer thus far, the shea was in perfect condition and arrived here in a record time. Hats off to whoever purchases from Deji you will definitely not be disappointed..

  34. would like to know if the whole nut can be shipped to USA.
    would the added weight make shipping too expensive?
    how does one know if the nut is “yellow” or “white” before the shell is broken open? Approximately what is the “yield” from one “nut”?

    • Hello Delores,answers to your question, yes seeds can be shipped to the USA, however, the heavier the weight in sacks, the higher the shipping cost,this will also depend on the airline. You can get the very besr quality from the right sources. Contact me if need be on 00233-0246877922 or visit my facebook page on Farm Direct Foods.

  35. I find u information useful because i hav skin disese so how can i get shea butter am in tanzania

    • Hello Neferank. Yes you can smear shea butter before you go to bed, note that the nutty scent in sheabutter disappear few munites, i use it every nite and apply on my feed and other extreme parts for smooth skin. It heals, restores and refreshes the skin. Contact me on 00233-0246877922 or visit my facebook page on Farm Direct Foods. We ship globally.

  36. Shea Butter has strong smell, it wont disappear complately whatever you put. Please, check your essential oil, it has to be good quality. You can check it on this way: put few drops of oil on a piece of paper and let it to dry. After it should not be visible but it should still have scent.

  37. Hello,
    First I would like to say that I love your website. It contains a lot of excellent information. Thank You for creating this website.
    Second, I used the recipe for the whipped Shea Butter. I added 20 drops of essential oil. I am not sure if I bought the right shea butter or if I did something else wrong. All I can smell is the Shea Butter. I cannot smell the essential oil. I purchased the Shea Butter that is yellow colored and the Shea Butter smell is very strong.
    Can you please tell me what I need to do?
    In Joy,
    Debi Perry
    shorteay@yahoo.com

    • my understanding is if the Shea is unrefined it have not been filter. it is not recommended for cosmetics usage, that is why it has the smell. I read this some where. you want to purchase the refined or Raw Shea Butter.

    • Hello Shorteay. Please note that every natural or organic oil has their unique smell/scent. However this natural scent can be altered bu adding or mixing with fragrances and colors through refining, this takes away the natural properties of it. But think about organic shea butter is that scent disappear geadually in minutes, one cannot even notice if you smear shea butter and put on your perfume. You are good to go. I use it daily and at night. Contact me on 00233-0246877922 or visit my facebook page on Farm Direct Foods for sample pics of my products.
