Allow Grapefruit, Roman Chamomile and Black Pepper’s muscle-soothing abilities to take a load off, Lemon to help calm rigid nerves, and Sweet Orange, Hemp and Thyme to encourage reduced inflammation all while deeply nourishing your skin. Say goodbye to sore muscles and after-workout pain.

Hi Ellen! Mango butter has a much lower melting point than soy wax, so the body butter would be much softer and melt much easier. You can still use mango butter if you prefer a softer body butter, or you can replace soy wax with another wax such as carnauba or candelilla wax.

Could you tell me if something else could be used instead of the soy wax? I would like to use mango butter.
