Mango Butter is a natural emollient that seals moisture into your skin. Safe for pets, too! Cools hot spots, soothes their itchies. It doesn't have a strong scent so they have a tendency to leave it alone. But if they lick it, it won't hurt them.
Keeping in mind the lovely, happy days of summer, we gladly bring you three recipes to satisfy just about every desire you might have regarding, well ... BUTTERS, of course. We dedicate these recipes to the free-spirited child living inside every one of us.
As pricey as butters can run, you’d think the list of ingredients required to make them would be loooooong … but it’s not. We’ve been checking out the labels of several rather pricey ones and many of the ingredients require serious phonics skills as well as Google to help decipher what they are and what they do. When in doubt, try typing in EWG and "name your ingredient". Or Truth In Aging and "name your ingredient" and you’ll get instant information. Many commercial butters contain more than a few synthetic ingredients. Yours, however, will not.
