Coco - Mango Body Butter
30% Unrefined Shea Butter
Weight mango butter in a plastic bowl and place in the micro and heat until liquid, be sure to not over heat this, do this in 30 second intervals until complete liquid. When this is completed, add the shea butter, virgin coconut oil and oils to the melted oil. Place in the microwave to soften, but not melt all the way. I have found that using a whisk type mixer produces the best results. Place all your butters & oils in your mixing bowl. Start on low to incorporate all your butters & oils together. Once that is done, you can then turn your mixer on high and let it whip. Once it reaches the look of whipped egg whites. Stop your mixer and add your fragrance, mix it by hand for a minute, then turn your mixer on high and whip it up real good to mix in the fragrance.
