Uses for Mango Butter - Plus the Top 4 DIY Recipes

Mango butter is a fast absorbing butter even though it is a very solid butter.

If you are not fond of greasy fingers when using body oils/butters, then you will love Mango Butter. The only thing that may disappoint you about mango butter is that it does not smell like mangoes. Kind of sad since Mangos smell amazing, but it is very easy to work with and that is a great bonus.

Beyond the fast-absorbing goodness of mango butter, it’s also rich in vitamins A and C and mostly made up of oleic and stearic acid. Mango Butter is full of antioxidants to help combat free radicals, and can helps soothe, protect, and moisturize your skin. All in all, it’s an amazing ingredient for most skin and hair care DIY projects and it’s delicious to cook with.

Mango Butter is a great stand-alone product for cooking and body care, but here are a few recipes that are so amazing you may want to try.

If you want an aroma, we recommend Plant Therapy Essential Oils (I started this company and it is now owned by my kids). Look for their seasonal aromas for delicious smells or search for your skin, hair or nail needs.    

Whipped Body Butter

1 cup Mango Butter

½ cup oil - Depending on your need this oil could be:

  1. Neem for skin restoration and added insect repellent (Neem has an odor but it is amazing)
  2. Hemp Oil is full of therapeutic values and can assist with pain and hormonal balance.
  3. MCT Fractionated Coconut Oil has so many uses and is great to have around the house.
  4. Almond Oil or Avocado Oil are both extra healthy for the skin and hair
  5. RoseHip Oil will make the butter a beautiful orange color and it contains Anti-Aging properties.
  6. Marula Oil or Argan Oil are a little more money but the benefits to the skin and hair are amazing.

Double boiler melt the Mango Butter.  Add the oils and as they begin to solidify add the essential oil(optional) put in a jar and shake vigorously or whip with hand or electric beaters. 

Cocoa Mango Body Balm
