Easy Whipped Shea Butter

Easy Whipped Shea Butter recipe from Bramble Berry Soaps

This is a great recipe that I love so much that I wanted to share. I use organic ingredients and essential oils. My favorites are rose, patchouli, and sandalwood.

Picture 151

14 oz Shea Butter
5 oz Coconut Oil
6 ml Cranberry Fig Fragrance Oil (or your choice)
Electric Mixer
4 ounce jars

Combine all ingredients and whip for 6-7 minutes in an electric mixer on medium/high. Spoon into jars. That's it. You're done!

Easy, right? Who knew something great could come out of an afternoon of experimentation in the soap lab? I've been using it on my elbows and feet and totally love it!

My Little House in Paris, TN

The Two Sisters August 2009

My little house in Paris, TN- The Two Sisters. I usually head down to relax, see my family and to my little house every year in December after the busy Holiday season is over. This year we are going down there a little later than usual- not until a week and only for a few days. But, in those few days I will be taken away from stress, the schedules, meetings, complications of everyday life, and reality in general. Well, the reality that I have created :-) It is hard to explain how I am attached to this little house and how at peace I am when I am there.

So, to the Two Sisters I am headed in a week and I am busy now collecting things like white dishes, incense and sage, trinkets and another rocker to take to her. Where I will relax and regroup. Thank God for the little things in life.

The Two Sisters 2004

There was a freak snow that year the day we arrived. It lasted only a day but it was quite exciting for my nieces and nephews.
