1/2 cup shea butter

2 tablespoons of coconut oil or evoo (coconut oil is recommended to make the mixture less greasy)

Stove Top Directions:
You can create a double boiler by placing a glass bowl over a small pot of boiling water. Do not let the bowl tip into the water. Add shea butter, coconut oil to glass bowl, and allow to melt. Add honey while oils are hot. Stir gently. Remove glass bowl from heat and place on a surface for mixing. Add aloe vera gel to warm oil and mix using a hand mixer. Add other oils after mixture has cooled down for about 30 minutes. Place mixture in an air tight container. Place in the refrigerator only for a few hours so it can set and then take it out and place in a cool, dry area.
