Today I decided to experiment and have a go at creating our new butter that I wanted to create for problem skin, particularly eczema, which is plaguing the backs of my legs at the moment.
I wanted to make something soothing, a bit medicinal, calming, moisturising, and oh so good, involving amazing Mango butter and Hemp seed oil.
Mango butter comes from the seed kernel of the mango tree and is full of essential fatty acids. It has a lovely luxurious feel, and unlike cocoa and shea butter, also has wound healing properties.
Hemp seed oil is cold pressed from the cannabis sativa plant (I know what you’re thinking) with a lovely dark green colour. It is also full of EFA’s and proteins and makes an excellent, balancing moisturiser that is easily absorbed by the skin. (Please note, it does not contain any of the psychoactive properties present in the Cannabis plant).
Miracle Butter coming soon!
