Measuring the mango butter

1. Add mango butter to measuring jug

Pour 400 grams (14 oz) of mango butter into a glass measuring jug. 

It is best to use a food scale so that you can measure out the amounts exactly.

2. Add cocoa butter 

Pour 100 grams (3.5 oz) of cocoa butter into the measuring jug with the mango butter. 

Make sure you are using a glass measuring cup because it will be much easier for melting.

Melting the butters in hot water

3. Melt the butters

Place the measuring jug in a pot of hot water. Do not put the water on a very high heat because you do not want to lose the nutrients from the butters

This will help melt the cocoa mango butter mixture slowly and gently.

4. Pour into a bowl

Pour the now-melted cocoa mango butter mixture into a plastic bowl. 

Place in the freezer to cool for 30 minutes. I kept mine in for 45 minutes and I feel like it overstayed and I should have put it in for only 30 minutes. 

Scraping the butter ready for whipping

5. Scrape the butter 

Use a spoon to scrape the butter off the sides of the bowl. This will make it easier to blend the butters.

6. Blend the butter

Use a handheld electric mixer to mix the butter to a fluffy consistency. 

As you blend, you will see the texture of the butter start to change into a magnificent fluffy texture. 

Scrape the bottom to make sure you get all the butter incorporated. 

Adding drops of essential oils

7. Add in essential oils 

Add a few drops of your choice of essential oils to the fluffy butter mixture. Some options are lavender, lemongrass, etc. It's up to you.

9. Store in jars

Transfer the mixture into your jars for storing. I am storing them in 100 ml (3.4 fl oz) containers, which makes a total of 9 jars from this recipe. That is a lot of body butter!
