What’s So Great About Nilotica Shea Butter?

By Lisa Maliga, copyright 2015, 2016

Nilotica [East African] Shea Body Butter Recipes [The Whipped Shea Butter Series], Book 1 lisa maligaI took 178 photos over the span of three days. It’s what I do to make sure I get the right photo. Shea butter is very sensitive to heat and sunlight – two things that I needed to get photos of my star ingredient. A hot sunny day provided awesome lighting conditions but the melt threat was on red alert. Photographing shea butter at noon is akin to taking a photo of a bowl of ice cream. I found a sunny corner indoors but the light was too intense even after a nice improvised background.

Braving the 87 degree heat, I placed the two containers on top of a tray table. I got the shot, and now it’s on the cover of my latest eBook, Nilotica [East African] Shea Body Butter Recipes [The Whipped Shea Butter Series], Book 1.

Click images to enlarge. I spent quite a while making the recipes and taking the pictures. I tested the Nilotica shea butter. I tested it raw, right out of the container. I tested it midway through the whipping process and afterwards. Ever since I first tried it back in 2009, I adore Nilotica shea butter. And I hope you want to learn more about this marvelous and versatile nut butter.

Here’s the official blurb:

What is Monoi de Tahiti?

By Lisa Maliga

Copyright 2008-2016

monoi de tahiti bottle monoi de tahiti: spa in a bottle ebook lisa maligaHow many of you would love to visit Tahiti? Now you can, for only the cost of a bottle of Monoi de Tahiti, a rich combination of Tahitian coconuts and native gardenia flower Monoi, which translates as ‘scented oil,’ comes exclusively from Tahitian coconuts. The genus of Cocos nucifera that grows in this island brings to mind images of coconuts, but also the native flower, Gardenia tahitensis. Similar to jasmine, the white petals of this flower also have a distinct sweet floral aroma that some find reminiscent of another sultry flower that thrives in a hot, humid environment: tuberose. Of all the Tahitian flowers, the one used most for traditional medicine is the Tiare Gardenia. Yet the moisturizing properties that come from using Tiare flowers in the making of monoi oil are its most remarkable and famous application.Having worked with this lovely oil for over a decade, adding it to soaps, shampoo bars, whipped shea butter and other bath & body products, I’ve written a little e-book all about Monoi de Tahiti. It includes suggested uses, where to buy this lovely oil, and never-before-published recipes.

No matter what the season, where you’re located, or what condition your skin or hair is in, you can discover this natural, aromatic gift from the South Pacific — exotic Monoi de Tahiti oil.
