DIY 3 Ingredient Coconut Body Butter

DIY 3 Ingredient Coconut Body Butter

With summer just around the corner, people are pumping up their skincare routines so they can flaunt what they got. Whether you have oily or dry skin, the right moisturizer can balance the skin’s oil production, or restore much-needed hydration. Body butter does just that.

The bulk of body butters are made up of two very effective ingredients: vegetable or fruit butter and carrier oils. At EG, we developed our own body butter using occlusive, emollient and vitamin-rich mango butter, along with highly skin conditioning, smoothing and moisturizing Coconut oil.

Add a few drops of uplifting essential oils, like our Joy or Shine synergy blends, and you’ll be loving the way your skin looks, feels and perfumes. Just how incredible are these three ingredients on your skin? Here’s how to experience our DIY Coconut body butter for yourself.

What you need

4 oz Mango butter

3 ozCoconut carrier oil

80 dropsJoy orShine synergy blend

Container(s)

How to

Yield: Approximately 7 oz of body butter

Melt mango butter over medium heat in a double boiler and add Coconut oil. Transfer to a container, and stir in Joy or Shine synergy blend. Place in the fridge and allow to cool until it thickens, but doesn’t set. Remove from the fridge once thickened and use a hand blender or mixer to whip the body butter into your desired consistency. Enjoy the rich, buttery texture of this nourishing coconut body butter.

*Note: Joy and Shine are phototoxic and this body butter is not recommended to be used if you will be exposed to UV rays within 12 hours of putting it on. You may add non-phototoxic oils and synergy blends as well such as Lavender, Elemi, Frankincense, Rosemary, Allure, Aromance and Earth & Wood.

How do you store it? Do you keep the butter stored at room temperature once you whip it? I had it in my bathroom but for some reason my butter got these little hard balls in it after I made it and ruined the texture. I am not sure if it is because it got too hot and then too cold?

Hi Chris! The Fractionated Coconut oil that we offer doesn’t harden and is scentless. However you can substitute it for other carrier oils as well.

Can you use something other than coconut oil that doesn’t harden or do you have another suggestion for those of us that don’t like the smell of coconut?

Hi Julie! You can replace mango butter with most butters like shea, kokum and, cocoa butter.

Where do I find mango butter. Do you carry it or do I buy it somewhere else. Not sure what it is.
I’m wanting to make the DYI 3 coconut body Butter, but don’t know what mango butter is or where to find it. Thank you.

Hi,
Can you use something other than mango butter? I am allergic to most citrus products and I am scared the mango may cause a reaction.

Thanks!

I use coconut oil, orange oil, cypress and muscle relief. It smells amazing and works great. So cool and refreshing.
