I went ahead and bought 25lbs of shea butter from agbanga and I wanted to know how everyone whips theirs. I am thinking about getting a kitchenaid mixer. If I use it for whipping shea is it considered a business expense? Tax write off? If not then I still really wanted one and this will give me an excuse. :biggrin I have a blender but doubt that it could handle much if any shea butter.
