Ingredients & InstructionsView recipe video
1 cup of cut up Mango Butter. Simply cut off small pieces of the butter and put them in a cup, don’t pack it in.
1/2 cup of Apricot Oil
20 drops of essential oils. For example if you want a really flowery, spring scent add: 10 drops of lavender EO, 5 drops of Geranium EO and 5 drops of Chamomile EO.
1/4 teaspoon of pink mica. This is optional as it does not add any skin benefits to the mousse, however, the soft, pink hue makes this simple skin treat look lovely.
- Put the cut up mango butter and the apricot oil in a bowl, smash the mix with a fork or other utensil, stir it up, then whip it with an electric mixer. The force of the mixer will help whip the mango butter and make it increase in volume into a nice, soft mousse.
- Half way through the whipping, add the essential oils, then whip a bit more until it has increased in volume a bit, around 5 minutes.
- Gently stir in the mica powder. Once blended, turn on the electric mixer to mix it up well.
- Your whipped mango body mousse is READY!!! Scoop it in your final container or put it in a zip lock bag, cut a corner out of the end, then squeeze the mousse into your containers. It will last 6-9 months if stored in a cool place away from direct sun light.
