I dont melt shea butter, I leave out to let it soften
But Cocoa Butter, is hard and you have to melt it down a bit, I put it in a micro safe bowl and heat it up 30sec at a time till is soft, Not melted.
I have whipped aloe vera gel, coconut oil, shea and cocoa butter. If you find your mix being to hard add more aloe vera or coconut oil, and then whip it for a longer time, until its soft and light like clouds (seriously) it willy stay soft and fluffy longer.
