I’m still looking for that perfect body whip and I think I found it!
The Mango Body Butter I made several weeks ago is great, but it’s really a butter. It whips up nice, but doesn’t stay soft. I still like it, but I want something that stays soft. I had made one for my friend Deegee last year but I can’t remember which formula I used, so I thought I’d start from scratch. I know hers had a lot of shea. Here is what I made yesterday.
I noticed when I was filling the jars that it wasn’t setting up so fast like it the Mango Body Butter did.
But the real test is what it feels like today, one day later.
Today it’s just as soft and creamy as when I whipped it up yesterday and just what I wanted for some Christmas gifts. I wanted it to smell like chocolate but I used all of that fragrance oil up on the soap we made several weeks ago that I’ve yet to post about!
Here is the recipe if you want to try your hand at this body whip.
A word about shelf life. Most of the oils I used have a long shelf life except for the sesame seed oil which only has a shelf life of 9-12 months. I am hoping the recipents of this whip will use it within the year. To be safe without putting in a preservative, I’d throw any of this left over after 9 months. But I know there won’t be any left over from my jar!
Now that I’ve posted about this whip I won’t lose it!
