Handmade Mango Body Butter


During the chill of winter, body and hand lotions make good homemade Christmas gifts for everyone.  This Handmade Mango Body Butter from Lynda Heines is easy to make and will instantly remind you of summer! 

 Handmade Mango Body Butter


  • 40% mango butter (or another hard butter, cocoa or illipe)
  • 40% shea butter
  • 18% sesame oil (or your favorite oil)
  • 1% vitamin E (optional)
  • 1% Mango sorbet FO (or your fragrance oil of choice)



  1. To get started, melt the mango butter in a double boiler or in the microwave.

  2. After mango butter is melted, add the sesame oil. Remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile place the shea butter in a container.

  4. Then pour this melted oil mixture over the shea butter. Shea butter has a tendency to turn grainy when it is heated and then cooled slowly. If you slowly melt it and not by direct heat, it doesn’t grain (you could also add the shea butter to your double boiler pan and let the shea melt with the other oils there).

  5. Continue to blend until the shea has mostly melted.

  7. After the five minutes, whip the mixture for a minute or so and then set back into the ice bowl. Repeat this process (from ice bowl to whipping) until you like the consistency. It should take about three five-minute chills to get it whipped.
