Shea Butter Hard to Spread
You can soften it up a bit by either leaving it in a warm spot, or putting it in a warm water bath (put it in a metal bowl and then set that bowl inside of another with warm water in it) Stir it but make sure no water gets in it or it can go moldy.
Shea softens very easily, if you have a fairly good mixer, or even just using a hand whisk or fork, you can mix it up at room temp in the summer.
Anyway, you can add a small amount of your favourite oil to give it a little moisture for easier spreading. Or even keep a tiny amount in a warm spot and just use it that way, it will spread easier when it is warm.
