Shea butter and rose shower smoothie

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30 minutes
Yields: 2 pots (250 ml)


Shower smoothies are whipped up foamy bath butter bases with added nourishing and conditioning ingredients, such as butters and oils, which makes them particularly mild and moisturising to your skin. They are also extremely convenient, because they cleanse and condition your skin at the same time, so there’s no need for a body lotion afterwards. Simply lather up all over, let the shower smoothie work its magic for a minute, and then rinse off for soft, velvety skin.

For this recipe, I’m using a foamy bath butter base from Pure Nature, and I’ve added shea butter, which is deeply moisturising and full of nourishing vitamins and fatty acids to help condition and protect dry skin. Combine this with a delightful rose fragrance and shimmery rose mica for an indulgent, decadent shower experience!

ONE: Combine the foaming bath butter base, fragrance and mica in a bowl, which is large enough to hold at least three times the volume of the ingredients. If you have a stand mixer, like a KitchenAid, use the bowl of this.

TWO: In a heat-proof bowl, heat the shea butter in the microwave on high for one minute or until fully melted, and add to the other ingredients. I usually heat the shea butter for one minute and then let it sit until melted.

THREE: Using an electric hand mixer (or a stand mixer), beat the mixture until light and fluffy, but don’t over-beat it or it will collapse, like one of my soufflés!  Stick to maximum twice the volume.

Keep beating…

FOUR: Scoop the now fluffy soap into your pots, seal and enjoy!


PS This recipe makes two pots: one to give away and one to keep. Just saying!
