30g Shea Butter
30g Mango Butter
10ml Jojoba Oil
1ml Vitamin E Oil
5 Drops Frankincense EO
This is a pretty special concoction, rather like cake icing for your face. It’s a luscious, luxurious and delicious cream for the face, made of Shea and Mango butters, as well as a mix of oils. The result is a fluffy, light day cream. The jojoba and Vitamin E are gently moisturising without being greasy, and the frankincense helps keep the skin firm and wrinkle free. So easy, so lovely, chuck out that Nivea and start whipping.
1. Melt the butters over a bain-marie until they are partially but not wholly liquid.
2. Add in the vitamin E and jojoba oils and stir well to ensure distributed evenly
3. Allow to cool for 5 minutes
4. Grab your electric whisk and start whisking. After one round, add the frankincense. Repeat the cooling and whisking until the cream has taken on a fluffy consistency
Avoid getting any water in during the whisking and cooling process, as it will cause the butters and oils to separate. Make sure any spoons and whisks are dry before using.
