How to Use Shea Butter As A Oil Bath

Hello Folks,

I know you all have heard of shea butter. I'm pretty sure you are looking at the title like What! But yes it is true you can actually bathe in shea butter and it is awesome. Just a little background on shea butter, it is a multi-purpose all natural product that comes directly from a nut. It softens as well as heals the skin from various conditions and it has been proven to detox and relax tired musles.

Ok. On to the good stuff. The key to this is to pamper yourself without spending the extra bucks, which many don't have these days. A shea butter bath is very simple and is easy to incorporate into your lifestyle. All you are going to be doing is melting some 100% all natural shea butter, rubbing it into your skin feet to head, rinsing and of course going to bed (rest does do the body good).

Alright Alright I hear you talking on to the how to use technique, so here we go:

Step 1: Run a very warm bath with your favorite bubble bath or bath salt.

Step 2: While bath is running get your shea butter spoon out about 2-4 tablespoons (more or less depending on body size remember you want enough to cover your entire body) into a stainless steel pot melt on low heat. Be very cautious shea butter melts quickly, gets very hot and burns easily. Pour the shea butter into a container that you can easily dip you fingers/hands into.

Step 3: Take your bath just as you normally would, only this time focus on relaxing your mind, soak for at least 15 minutes or more. Wash your body make sure to cleanse the skin well.

Step 4: Once skin is clean, stand up in the tub and began to apply the shea butter, cover your hands with melted butter (remember by this time it will be cooled and may be soft don't panic just use it as is). Use your knuckles, while using a circular motion from feet, up legs to upper body (focus as much as possible on your tension/stress points). Keep applying the oil to your hands as needed until your entire body is covered except face. Rinse your body off in cool not cold water and apply the oil residue to your face with the same circular motions. Pat yourself dry, cover up in your favorite pajamas and go straight to bed be prepared to sleep like a baby and be well rested in the morning.

Well, I hope you enjoy this easy to use self-pamper technique. Don't be afraid to share the wealth of knowledge and be creative with this it can always be used with that special someone. Stay healthy, relax AND LIVE MORE ABUNDANTLY.
