    [QUOTE=Pommie;96502]Simmo,

    I did a search for "Shea Butter Australia Pty Ltd" a few days ago and all I could get (apart from their street address) was that every page on the site (including the shop), was "Under Construction"!

    In response to your latest post, I have just done another search via Google and all three references have turned up information which seems to indicate that their site has been taken down. Don't know what is going on but I am a bit suspicious.

    My supplier has been Mama Aum which was based in Brisbane but I gather she has been affected by the floods and other problems, so I'm not sure if I can continue to get it from there.

    Hey pommie, Still seeing the home page here in Southern California. Link to the internal 'e-mail' still working -- perhaps this is just a DNS issue local to a local ISP. cheers to all you guys down under and hope to get a report on this source.

    Hi Pommie,
    I did not go to the shop page, I just went to 'contact us' and sent them an email.
    They responded quickly and gave the pricing detail as requested (and postage to Sydney)
    They only accepted direct deposit(they emailed the banking details) so not too much of a risk verses giving credit card details. The owner/director seemed genuinely interested in feedback from his product. As I'm a bit of a newbie, I thought I'd take I a little risk with them.
    They seem quite genuine, I can let you know when it turns up and post some feedback.

    Hi J4,

    Thanks for the excellent advice on how to use this shea butter.
    I'm hoping this will help also on my journey to achieve the involuntarie contractions and dry orgasms.
    I'm making very small steps in the right direction,in my latest sessions i'm beginning to feel all sorts of muscle twitching in my legs,like little spasms.
    Just hope this is a good sign that i get these,now i have to wait probably a week for the shea butter to arive so i'll let you know how it goes

    I've been using this brand for some time (I'm in the UK as per my user name) Sheabutter Cottage - SHEA BUTTER

    I bought 200g and it arrived in chunks in an oversized pot. I wasn't sure whether to leave it in chunks or what so eventually I melted it down with 10 second blasts in the microwave. Although it's been fully melted and stirred well I think it's a little crumbly and grainy whilst applying it. However, it's a super lube and after a session my Aneros of the day always looks well lubed still.

    I use the three pea sized balls method, 2 for my bum and the last one smeared all over the Aneros. Works well and I fine it almost less messy than injecting water based lube. It's also a major bonus to be using a healthy product.

    I bought a Vice last week, so far I've only found time for a 10 minute "see what it's like" session. I have to say Aneros have hit the mark with that beauty and although £100 is a considered butt purchase it's worth the money.

    Anyway, I digress. Having read how Love_is is smitten with the Now Foods brand Shea Butter, I finally have some. Damned expensive in the UK but next time I'm able to indulge myself I'll try the Now Foods. Think I'll have a go au naturel first before I microwave it. However, I must admit I'd got used to the smell and colour of the other stuff and the Now Foods odourless product took me by surprise a little but a smear on my fingers feels very good.

    As ever, i just wish I had more "me time" as I sometimes have to go months without a session.

    is raw/unrefine cococut oil good?, cant find the shea and dont wanna order it.

    legace;

    Unrefined coconut oil is solid at room temp but melts in your hand. Also, it has little lumps in it, which melt after insertion. It worked well on the Eupho, but not as well on Vice -- not slippery enough, I guess. Lasted about 2 hours.

    I've been trying out Walnut Oil, which is good for you; has natural Omega 3 in it. It's slick enough for Eupho or Vice and lasts about 2 hours. If you use it as a coating over Vaseline, the combo will last for 8 hours.

    Best Regards,

    Dave

    PS. Been using Walnut Oil lately. It works really well and has health benefits. Win-win!

    In an attempt to keep all the relevant shea butter information in one area, here is a couple posts that are relevant to the topic.

    ten_s_nut,

    A while ago I took your advice and sought out a supply of walnut oil. I found that using it in conjunction with Vaseline, it tended to leak and leave a deposit on the sheets. I used about 2ml and was surprised that I would have lost so much.

    Did I just use too much? How much do you use in a typical application? Does it work better with something else such as shea butter.

    I have to say I am reluctant to use it until I am sure it won't leak. I am keen to continue with it particularly if it is also good for you!

    Pommie;

    I use about 1cc of Walnut Oil -- just enough to make the Vaseline on the Aneros shiny and wet-looking. Never had a problem with any of it leaking out when using Eupho or Vice in an all-nighter. The next morning, when I remove the Aneros, the Walnut Oil is gone and only the Vaseline remains on the device. I hope you have better luck with it next time.

    Best Regards,

    Dave

    Dave,

    Thanks for that!

    My problem seems to have been with the mode of use. I had used the oil as a pre-lube, injected by using an eyedropper.

    Will try your method instead.

    A new note to add here...
    I just found out that shea butter left in the refrigerator for long time, or perhaps it's just it's age, dries out such that it's melting point temperature is much higher. I would say somewhat higher than body temperature. I had been noticing that what was previously a good jar of Now Foods shea butter, the last approximately 1/8 of the jar was very crumbly and not inserting very easily in my anus as it wasn't melting very much on the way in. And also not spreading very well on the Aneros. After insertion which was not as easy as usual, there was not much movement of the Aneros. Upon removal of my Aneros, I noticed the shea butter looked far too viscous. I tried melting what was left in the jar to see if it would help. And after cooling down in the refrigerator it was like a hard block of wax. Opened up my new jar of shea butter and what an amazing difference! So soft and creamy like I'm used to. So apparently this is one way that shea butter can go bad over time, or possibly the dehumidifying environment inside the refrigerator causes this.
  • @Love_is - My shea butter is also crumbly even after microwaving it and letting it cool down. My only problem is that the mobility of my Aneros toys with the shea butter isn't very good. I like your idea about keeping the shea butter at room temperature.

    I'm going to try mixing in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil with my shea butter and see how it improves the mobility of my Aneros toys.

    @praxyon - You may just have an old batch of shea butter. Hence the mobility of your Aneros will not be good if the melting temp of the shea butter has become too high. I recall I've had a few jars over the years that were crumbly and dry right from the start of opening it. Sometimes melting it helped, often not. Unfortunate, but could just be old stock from the store that wasn't moving them fast enough. I actually prefer to keep mine in the refrigerator, my new jar had not been put in there yet, but is now. I do this because it makes much less waste when inserting chunks into my rectum, as the chunk stays solid briefly until it warms up. Rather than a lot of it just being squeezed and squished off at the outer anal sphincter.

    I'll be curious to hear if adding an oil that doesn't solidify at room temperature to the shea butter can revitalize and make useful a batch that has dried up and aged. I was actually thinking maybe it needed a bit of water. But that probably wouldn't mix well. Let's us know how your experiment goes.
  • @Love_is - You are most likely correct about me receiving an old batch of shea butter. When my shea butter was crumbly and refrigerated I used your method of pushing chunks of butter into the rectum. I don’t think I’ll be refrigerating my shea butter from now on due to the success I’ve had with my experiments.

    Experiment 1:  I microwaved and stirred my shea butter until it was fully liquefied. Instead of cooling it down in the refrigerator, I left it at room temperature to cool. This worked great because my shea butter isn’t crumbly anymore. Now my shea butter is grainy, melts quicker and can easily be scooped out of the bucket with a teaspoon. I just coat my finger with the butter and put it up my rectum, and likewise with the Helix Syn. The mobility of my Helix Syn was much better after this experiment, but I still wanted to try mixing the shea butter with olive oil.

    Experiment 2: I mixed the shea butter with some extra virgin olive oil. The mobility of the Helix Syn was even better when I did this. The mixture lasted for my whole one hour session. Although my Helix Syn was quite dry by the end of my session I’ll take it as a sign to use less olive oil next time. I like the fact that the olive oil was slippery because it offset the thickness of the shea butter.

    @praxyon - Thanks for sharing your experiment results with us. In experiment 1, I wonder if cooling it at room temperature rather than in the refrigerator like I did, has a positive effect on how it sets? And I like that adding some type of oil seems to be a possible way to revive a dried out batch of shea butter. I'll keep this in mind next time.
  • @Love_is - You mentioned in some of your previous posts that you microwaved the shea butter until it was 'over-heated/over-cooked' and it performed poorly for you because it became too viscous. I assume that your 'over-cooked' shea butter was liquefied. How did you cool your 'over-cooked' shea butter?

    I'm thinking that cooling 'over-cooked' or liquefied shea butter at room temperature is fine because I didn't have any performance issues after doing this, and my shea butter didn't increase in viscosity either.
  • Love_isLove_is

    @praxyon - Yes, liquefied each time. Most of the times in the past I just let it cool at room temperature. So perhaps that had nothing to do with it. I don't know what the magic equation is with this. LOL

    @Love_is - I am still using my shea butter and extra virgin olive oil mixture during my sessions, and it is giving me much success.

    Lately, instead of pre-mixing the butter and oil by heating it up, I have a pool of extra virgin olive oil in my bucket of shea butter. I use my finger to roughly mix some of the butter and oil, and then smother it on my Aneros toy before insertion. Since the butter and oil aren’t completely mixed, the small, solid parts of the shea butter are able to melt inside the rectum, and almost all of the mixture enters the rectum too.

    @praxyon - Thanks for the update! If you are not pre-mixing the two, how do you keep from having a mess with oil running everywhere?
  • praxyon

    @Love_is - It isn't messy as long as I am lubricating the Aneros toy over my bucket of shea butter/olive oil. I also wipe my finger with a tissue and wash it once I have inserted my Aneros toy.

    Are you still having success with your methods of lubricating?
  • Love_isLove_is
    Posts: 1,672
    @praxyon - Thanks for the further detail. Yes my method still works great as long as the shea butter is not old, dried out, not melting well at body temperature. Which this most recent jar has been amazingly soft, creamy, and melts nicely with body temperature. And I'm 3/4 of the way through it. I love this stuff as anal lube! I suspect my prior jar sat around to long as I had a break in my Aneros play for quite a while. Hence it started out fine, but then much later down the road went bad.

    I buy my unrefined shea butter in packs of about 250 gm. On arrival, I spoon and mould it into two glass storage jars and store them in my bar fridge.

    I've never had a problem with it going off and it lasts for at least a year!

    I bought a jar of shea butter, on an impulse, at a reggae festival yesterday. I was going to use it on the head of my drum. I had no idea I might be able to Aneros with it. Thanks for the info, guys.

    @RastaYoga,

    Just make sure it is certified unrefined shea butter lest it should contain unwanted or unsafe chemicals.
