Shea Butter | Safflower oil | Sweet orange essential oil | Strands of saffron

Shea butter is rich in vitamin A, E, K, and fatty acids which heal acne, stretch marks, fine lines, scars and wrinkles, repair damaged skin and increase collagen production.

It has deep moisturizing and lubricating properties.

Shea butter reduces inflammation and redness due to acne and naturally lightens and even skin color. It will also lighten the scars.

To make a cream along with shea butter we will also need Carrier oil and for this, we are using safflower oil.

It is light in texture and barely has any sense.

Shea butter contains about 78% of linoleic acid which promotes skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles and prevents water from leaving your skin.

It also has zero comedogenic ratings which mean, it helps your skin breathe and will never clog your pores and is suitable even for an oily acne prone skin.

In place of safflower oil, you can also use hemp seed oil, castor oil, argan oil, grape seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, Kiwi seed oil, goji berry seed oil.

Here a nut oil or watermelon seed oil, safflower oil, also stimulates collagen and use self-production light in dark spots and reduces dark circles and helps your skin glow over time.

I don’t recommend coconut oil to be used on the face as coconut oil can clog pores and increase acne.

Sweet orange essential oil is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antidepressant, it will also prevent acne, increase collagen production, smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, increase blood flow, and help get better sleep.

The will also brighten, lighten and whiten your face as it is extracted from orange peels which are known to have natural skin bleaching properties.

Saffron has potassium which helps with cell formation and repair. Saffron treats acne, soothes skin, and has a lot of vitamins and antioxidants. It lightens your skin and treats blemishes.

Turmeric contains curcumin which reduces dark spots treats uneven skin tone and gives your skin a natural glow. It cures acne, removes dead skin cells and reduces scar marks.

How to make:

Now, this is how we will make the skin lightening miracle cream and for this,

We have to  1/2 cup of shea butter, a ¼ cup of safflower oil, 10 drops of sweet orange essential oil, 10 to 15 strands of saffron and a pinch of turmeric powder.

Add the saffron and turmeric to the safflower oil so that it releases its benefits into the oil.

Next, take 1/2 cup of shea butter, if it has solidified in cold weather then warm it using a double boiler or your microwave, so then it softens a bit do not melt it entirely.

Now shift shea butter and safflower oil to a deep container and with an electric beater or a spatula whip for two to three minutes until they are mixed well and have a creamy consistency.

Next, add sweet orange essential oil, mix well. You should get a creamy thick consistency like this.


Use a clean wide container with a lid plastic glass or metal doesn’t matter.

Keep it in a cold dark place.

Now let’s know how to apply this cream:

Always wash your face first and let it be a little wet before applying this cream. This way the cream will lock in the moisture of your skin and heal it quickly.

Then apply this cream on your face and neck area using clean fingertips and massage well so that it gets absorbed properly.

The face will look shiny initially but within a few minutes, the cream will get absorbed into your skin.

It’s best to apply this cream in the night so that it has time to repair your skin cells and make it right.

Few points to remember are:

  1. Buying good quality products for better results.
  2. You can increase or reduce the quantity of safflower oil over the carrier oil as per your climatic conditions.

If the weather is cold and cream is too thick then, increase the quantity or if the weather is hot then reduce the quantity.

This way you will have a creamy and not pouring consistency. By the way, you can use any other essential oils of your choice like lavender, rose, or frankincense.

Apply it regularly and within two weeks you will notice clearer fairer skin.

The pigmentation, dark spots, blemishes, wrinkles, acne marks, etc. will lessen. Your skin color will lighten up to two tones in two weeks.

As mentioned before, this cream is suitable for all skin types.

It is 100% natural plus it is far cheaper than commercial creams with chemicals.
