What would an animated map of all the moisture in the world's atmosphere at this moment look like?
Something like this (more at the link):
This is basically all of the water that could precipitate out of the air at any given moment.

How I Made My Whipped Shea Butter.....
I got a few texts and some twitter questions on how I made this so here is my Homemade Shea Butter recipe. Most people on YouTube have electric hand mixers and since I don’t, I had to improvise. So, here we go!
- 1tbsp coconut oil
- 1tbsp jojoba oil
- 1tsp olive oil
- add any other oils of your liking (vitamin E, peppermint oil, caster oil etc) but not more than 1tbsp
- a container or some tupperware more than 16oz
- unrefined pure shea butter. (I used 16oz)
- Take about 4oz or 1/4 of the shea butter from the container and place it in tupperware
- Add all of the oils to the shea butter and microwave it for 20secs
- Once it is a liquid, I used a plastic fork to mix it around
- Add 4oz of shea butter to the liquid and start to whip the mixture like you would when you’re making scrambled eggs
- I continued to add more shea butter by the fork and whipped it into the mixture until I had the amount I wanted. I also added a little more jojoba oil and coconut oil as I did that
- Finally, I added 10-13 drops of peppermint oil because shea butter doesn’t smell all that great. I whipped that in.
There you have it, whipped shea butter!!
You don’t have to whip it as much as I did, I just wanted a creamy texture. Mine came out yellow because that was the color of the shea butter I used: I know the other color of shea butter is a white/gray. You can purchase unrefined shea butter on amazon: I got lucky and found this walking down the aisle of my local beauty supply store. You can get the oils from amazon as well but Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods have all of these oils available: however, they may be cheaper online. This took me 30mins to make
Make sure what ever container you do decide to use has a lid and store this at room temperature.
