( Note: Solid ingredients are measured by weight using a scale. Liquid ingredients are measured by volume using a measuring cup)
The butters, oil and wax3 oz of shea butter, 2 ounces of mango butter , 1 ounce of coconut oil , 5 ounce beeswax , 3 ounces of infused oil
The water portion
2 ounces of hydrosol , 1 ounce of aloe vera , essential oils of your choice (optional) , 1/4 teaspoon borax
Begin by slowly melting the butters and wax in a double boiler or in a pan on very low heat.
Once it has all melted, turn off the heat and slowly add the oil. When you add the oil you might notice parts of the liquid become solid again. Sometimes you can just give it a little stir and everything will melt again. If not, it may need a tiny bit more heat to be sure that it all melts together.
Once the butters, wax and oil are combined you’ll need to pour it into the container you are going to mix it in. If you are using a blender pour the mixture in the blender and set it aside until it is at room temperature. If you are using a cake mixer or immersion blender place it in the bowl you will use to whip it up.
While waiting for the butter mixture to cool, mix together the hydrosol, aloe vera, essential oils and the borax.
Once the butter mixture has cooled use a blender or handheld mixer to begin to mix it. Slowly add the hydrosol, aloe vera, essential oils and borax mixture.
