Citrus Mango Body Butter

“I hate feeling luxuriously moisturized without breaking the bank!” said no one ever. I mean, let’s face it… who on earth would want dry skin? Dry skin is practically a hand-delivered invitation and a welcome mat that said “Wrinkles, Come In!” Dehydrated and dry skin is not a good look on anyone. With the weather being unpredictable, it’s better to stay on the safe side and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

Now we all know luxurious moisturizers and other skin care necessities can be costly, but there is absolutely no need to go broke to look soft and glowing. With the help of your essential oils and Simply Earth’s body butter recipe, you’ll be as soft as a baby’s butt in no time!


Ingredients:


Directions

  3. Cook at low heat for about 20 minutes. Do not allow to boil or simmer.

  4. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the butter continually for several minutes (just like you would frosting.) As you keep mixing, it will start to look like whipped cream. The more you whip it, the lighter it will become.

  5. Use one of the following methods to keep the cream at the right consistency as it cools.

    1. Option 1: Cold Water Bath. Set the measuring cup into a large bowl filled with ice water to help cool the butter faster. Whip the butter continually until peaks form on top. Do this on and off every 5 minutes or so until you reach the desired consistency.

    2. Option 2: All Day Method. Let the mixture sit for several hours to cool and set. As it's setting, whip every couple of hours during the course of the day until the mixture has set to the correct texture.

  6. Add 10 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil.

Citrus Mango Body Butter Recipe

 

ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup (4oz) Shea Butter
  • ⅓ cup (2oz) Mango Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Jojoba Oil
  • 3 teaspoons Grapeseed oil
  • ¼ teaspoon Vitamin E
  • 10 drops Bergamot essential oil
  • 8 drops Lemongrass essential oil
  • 2 drops Cypress essential oil
  • 1 drop Geranium essential oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • Cosmetic Mica (optional - makes it glittery)

instructions:

  1. Put about an inch of water in the bottom of a medium-sized pot and heat to a low simmer.
  2. Place the Cocoa and Shea butter in a large heat-proof glass measuring cup (such as Pyrex.) Place the measuring cup in the water and warm slowly over a low heat until the butters are melted.
  3. Cook at a low heat for about 20 minutes (helps reduce the "grainy" feeling of the cocoa butter.) Do not allow to boil or simmer.
  4. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the butter continually for several minutes (just like you would frosting.) As you keep mixing, it will start to look like whipped cream. The more you whip it, the lighter it will become. Use one of the following methods to keep the cream at the right consistency as it cools.
