Today we’re gonna make a super creamy
and moisturizing body butter. Normally all homemade body butters are a blend of cosmetic butters and carrier oils And although there are techniques on how to make them fluffy, they all end up being pretty hard once they’ve fully settled. But this recipe will give you a soft creamy butter like no other whipped body butter we’ve made before. So let’s begin! For this recipe you’ll need 4 ounces of mango butter, 2.75 ounces of jojoba oil, and 60 drops of your favorite essential oil blend. We’re going to be using Indulge by AuraCacia. So first you want to cut the mango butter in small cubes or pieces, and then put them in a bowl. Using the back of a spoon mash the butter into a soft paste, And the more pasty you can make it, the easier it will be to whip. Now add a little bit of jojoba oil and mix it up by hand, Then use a hand blender to start whipping the butter. Slowly add more jojoba, a little bit at a
time, and then continue whipping. And unlike the butter melting methods we use in other recipes where heat is used, with this method you can add the essential oils at any time since nothing is hot. Now you want to mix this on high for a few minutes until everything is wonderfully creamy and soft. This body butter will be very creamy and close to liquid, and it won’t turn hard again and so far we’ve only been able to achieve this consistency by specifically using mango butter and jojoba oil. Place your mixture in a few small containers and now you can use this as an all-over moisturizer. A little of this wonderful mango body butter goes a long way So any small jar will last you quite a long time. So we hope you give this a try and love it as much as we do!
