Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mango butter
  • 1/2 cup shea butter
  • 1/4-1/2 cup sweet almond (depending on desiered consistency)
  • 2 TBSP organic pomegranate seed oil
  • 50 drops Sandalwood essential oil

Instructions

Melt butters by placing containers in warm water or on very low heat on your stove.  Stir together all ingredients and put in a glass jar.

Shea Butter: Shea nut oil is great for protecting against harsh weather conditions where a mild barrier against the elements is desired. Shea nut oil comes from cold pressing the nut of the shea tree during shea butter production, where the pressing of the seeds produces a fractionated oil. Shea nut oil lends a smooth and moisturized feel and brings many benefits for dry skin, mild burns, and general irritations.

Mango Butter: Mango butter is also great for protecting, moisturizing, soothing, and softening the skin. This butter has natural emollient properties. The look and feel of this butter is similar to cocoa and shea butters, which could be used as well.

Pomegranate Seed Oil: A relatively stable oil, organic pomegranate seed oil is wonderfully viscous, rich, and offers beneficial nutrients to the skin. This prized oil is luxurious and deeply penetrating, made from cold-pressed organic seeds of pomegranate fruit. It takes over 200 pounds of fresh pomegranate seeds to produce just one pound of pomegranate seed oil, so only a small amount is needed within formulas.
