    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

      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.

    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.

  6. 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”?

  7. Deji Ajayi says:

    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.
    I am a shea butter producer and I have good command of shea production. I export and supply cosmetics industries locally. You can place your order for unrefined shea butter free from all additives. or call +2348138719973.
