Shea Butter – Caribbean

Shea Butter Project 2012: The project was first performed in 2010 and repeated in 2012 with also teaching the young people about branding and sales. Three young people volunteered to make some shea butter smothers. Our 3 young kitchen mixtreses had fun measuring, mixing, blending and piping. They chose to use rose and lemongrass essential oils for their aroma and property values. They purchased their packaging from a local store, designed the labels. The highlight of the project was securing a large sale from a local natural shop  called ‘Limboland’ in the town capital of Marigot.
